Packers Hold Leading Receiver Cobb out vs. Vikings

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Green Bay's leading receiver Randall Cobb has been ruled out of the game at Minnesota because of ankle and knee injuries suffered last week.

Cobb was listed as questionable on the injury report. With the NFC North title already clinched the Packers decided on Sunday to rest Cobb, who doubles as their kick returner. Cobb has 954 yards and eight touchdowns receiving, plus one punt return for a score this season.

The Packers put wide receiver Jordy Nelson back in the lineup. He's missed four games, including the previous three, with a hamstring injury.

For the Vikings, defensive end Brian Robison returns after being held out last week with a sprained right shoulder that occurred against St. Louis on Dec. 16.
