Randall Cobb (foot) is no longer sporting a walking boot.

Cobb recently held a football camp and had no restrictions while working with kids. "I look great, I feel great," he told reporters. Cobb also indicated he'll be all systems go for the start of training camp. Locked in as the Packers' No. 2 wideout behind Davante Adams, Cobb is a value pick in the eighth round.

Randall Cobb (ankle) expects to be ready for training camp,

Cobb was in a walking boot in June. He may be limited early in camp but it shouldn't impact his Week 1 status. Cobb hasn't had more than four touchdowns in a season since 2015, but there's some rebound potential in a contract year.

In the premiere of Peter King's Football Morning in America (link below), Aaron Rodgers said he would "love to play to 40."

Rodgers will not turn 35 until December, but he is already thinking ahead. He notes players like Tom Brady and Brett Favre have had success after 40, but more mobile quarterbacks like him have struggled to remain effective into their late 30s. "My goal is be able to move like I do or close to how I do and still be able to do that at 40," Rodgers said. "Steve Young’s career was cut short in his late thirties. John [Elway], the same ... So to be able to move the same way at 38, 39, 40 would be cool. That’s my aim." Expected to sign a long-term extension before Week 1, there is little reason to doubt Rodgers will remain one of the best in the league for several years to come.

Packers claimed OG Ethan Cooper off waivers from the Giants.

An undrafted free agent last year, Cooper spent most of 2017 on the Giants' practice squad and was re-signed to a futures deal in January. He'll give the Packers some line depth going into training camp.

NFL suspended Aaron Jones two games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

This is not surprising after Jones pleaded no contest to a marijuana-related traffic charge in March. Jones can participate during training camp and in the preseason, but he will not be available to face the Bears or Vikings. He will be eligible to return Week 3 against Washington. With Jones suspended to open the season, Jamaal Williams should have the inside track on the early-down job with Ty Montgomery handling the passing downs.

Packers second-year RB Aaron Jones "bulked up" this offseason in an effort to become more durable and better in pass protection.

This will elicit eye rolls from veteran fantasy players who know running backs "bulking up" rarely pays dividends. Packers.com noted Jones especially got bigger in the lower body. "I’m bigger all around," Jones said. "That’s something that’s going to help me in pass protection. ... I’m stronger, so definitely when a defender who’s bigger than me comes up I can hold my ground." Whereas backfield competitor Jamaal Williams shined in pass protection as a rookie, it was one of Jones' primary deficiencies.

Packers president Mark Murphy "hopes to have an extension soon" with Aaron Rodgers.

The Packers have been in talks with Rodgers since the Combine, but there hasn't been much progress. Rodgers is due for an update on his 2013 deal that pays just $41.7 million over the next two seasons. With Matt Ryan signing a six-year, $169 million extension in May, Rodgers is going to pass the $30 million AAV threshold as the highest paid quarterback in the league. Rodgers was full-go at OTAs coming off shoulder surgery and should be 100 percent for training camp.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel's Michael Cohen spotted Randall Cobb wearing a walking boot on his right foot.

Cobb participated in OTAs, so it is a new injury. He said the boot was "temporary" but would not disclose if he underwent surgery. Cohen reports the team could ease the receiver into camp, but there is no concern about his availability for Week 1. Cobb has WR2 upside as the Packers' clear No. 2 receiver, but he carries some injury concern as well.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky writes both DeShone Kizer and Brett Hundley struggled during minicamp.

It is not a surprise considering how bad both looked last season, but there was at least some hope Kizer could take a step forward in a better situation. Perhaps he will, but Demovsky writes he held the ball too long, took sacks, and struggled with his accuracy during minicamp. Hundley struggled with the same things. Unless one of them improves in training camp, Green Bay's backup situation will once again be a concern.

Coach Mike McCarthy said the Packers will have a "running back by committee."

"We feel like we've got three guys that have all done, but they haven't done it over a long period of time," McCarthy said, "so I think it's just practical thinking from that position and realizing that it's a very demanding position." McCarthy did leave open the possibility of one player emerging as the clear option, but it sounds like all of Jamaal Williams, Ty Montgomery, and Aaron Jones will have a role to open the season, terrible news for each player's fantasy prospects. Perhaps someone emerges in camp, but this is shaping up as a situation to avoid.

ESPN's Rob Demovsky speculates Packers RT Bryan Bulaga (ACL) could open training camp on the PUP list.

Bulaga suffered a torn ACL in November. Coach Mike McCarthy expressed optimism about every injured player except Bulaga on Thursday, suggesting the team expects him to sit into camp. The Packers will have big questions at right tackle if Bulaga is not ready by Week 1.

Packers contract-year FS Ha Ha Clinton-Dix wants an extension before the start of the season.

Clinton-Dix skipped OTAs but returned for minicamp. A Pro Bowler in 2016, Clinton-Dix is coming off a down year but is a solid building block for the Packers’ secondary. He should command top-10 safety money ($7M-plus annually).

Packers DB Kentrell Brice is recovering from November ankle surgery.

Brice was injured in Week 4 against the Bears but ended up playing four weeks on the injury. It was later revealed he suffered a torn deltoid ligament in the ankle and needed surgery two months later. A former 2016 UDFA out of Louisiana Tech, Brice has been in on over 600 snaps the past two years.

Geronimo Allison (ankle) is sidelined for minicamp.

With Jordy Nelson gone, Allison has been running as the Packers' No. 3 receiver this offseason. Allison's training camp status isn't in doubt.
Jun 13 - 9:30 AM

ESPN's Rob Demovsky writes Ty Montgomery appears set for a "significant role in the offense."

Demovsky added Montgomery "didn't appear to lose any ground" to Jamaal Williams and Aaron Jones during OTAs. "We have to take advantage of Ty's skills, and there's no question about that," coach Mike McCarthy said. "The offense is suited for that." While it still seems more likely Williams or Jones wins the early-down role, Montgomery is clearly not going away. He could end up being a value in the double-digit rounds.
