If you’ve been following social media on Monday, the estimates on Randall Cobb’s timetable for return from a fractured fibula have fluctuated quite a bit, from as little as two weeks to as much as eight.

Adam Schefter of ESPN originally said Cobb would be out two weeks on Twitter on Monday afternoon, but later acknowledged a later timeframe after Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel released a report citing a scource that said Cobb would be out six to eight weeks.

It didn’t stop there, with Chris Mortenson of ESPN saying that the best-case scenario for return is four weeks and the worst-case scenario is eight weeks.

It would seem that the consensus is anywhere between four to eight weeks, but once again, it seems that the Packers have avoided a season-ending injury.

While there’s a chance James Jones could return from his knee injury as early as this week, there’s no guarantees being made.

There seems to be no avoiding the Packers needing to make a roster move this week, at least for a short-term replacement.

Rumors surfaced that the Packers could sign Tavarres King off the Denver Broncos practice squad, but that possibility appeared to be nixed by Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com.

Dunne reported the Packers have made contact with Tyrone Walker, who was in training camp in Green Bay this summer but later released and spending a few weeks on the practice squad of the Seattle Seahawks. Nothing appears to be imminent, however.

Myles White, who’s currently on the Packers’ own practice squad, would seem to be in the running as well.

Wide receiver Reggie Dunn was re-signed the Green Bay practice squad earlier on Monday.

Whoever the Packers end up signing, they would need to make room by either cutting someone or placing a player on injured reserve.

The Packers still haven’t used their short-term injured reserve designation, and that could be an option for either Cobb or linebacker Nick Perry, but neither player would be eligible to practice for six weeks and could play for eight, so the Packers would want to make sure the timetable for return definitely wouldn’t be shorter than the necessary eight weeks.

If the Packers were to cut a player, running back Michael Hill seems like a logical candidate, especially if James Starks will soon return from a knee injury suffered in the game before the Packers bye.

With Starks, Eddie Lacy, Johnathan Franklin and John Kuhn, the Packers would appear to have enough depth at running back to get by at least temporarily.

Re-signing Hill to practice squad would be a possibility.

I don't think Starks is ready to return yet but demoting Hill and going with Lacy, Franklin and Kuhn is still probably the best bet if they don't use the short term IR on Cobb or Perry.

IR designated to return?


Why the question mark?

The NFL passed a rule where each team has one "designated to return" IR spot... which is only allowed to be used once a year. The players must make the 53 man roster. The player must be put into that slot when they are IRed (so can't IR a guy and later move him to the "designated to return" spot, which I don't like). The player must miss 8 weeks of playing time.

Basically it's a new rule the NFL is testing to free up a spot when a player is injured enough to miss 8 weeks but not injured enough to miss the whole year. Kind of like the DL list in baseball, other than only one is allowed to be used in football.

Obviously it depends on the extent of the injury. If his recovery will take 7 or 8 weeks then hell yeah, use the designation. If they think he can come back after 4 or 5 they probably won't.

Sounds like Cobb will be out at least 8 weeks now as they used the designated to return IR on him. I kind of wish they would get a better/easy name for that though.
