Nelson, Cobb Miss Practice, Still Expected to Play

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Green Bay Packers wide receivers Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb should be ready for Saturday night's NFC divisional playoff game against San Francisco despite missing practice Wednesday.
Nelson is nursing an "ongoing" ankle injury, but coach Mike McCarthy says he hopes the receiver will practice Thursday. Cobb was sent home with the flu, the latest Packer to get sick.
"It's just that time of year here," McCarthy said. "But our doctors feel confident everybody will be ready for the game."
The Packers got some good news with the return of running back James Starks, who missed the last five games with a knee injury. McCarthy says it's too early to say how much he'll play against the 49ers.
