As we've pointed out on the Around The League Podcast, it's not just the missed games that hurt a team when a player is injured. It's also the decline in production as the player works his way back to peak form.
Here are the rest of Thursday's postseason injury updates:
- The Packers' offense is getting healthy. Randall Cobb is absent from the wild-card round injury report, a sign that he's closer to the early-season form that saw him play more than 90 percent of the snaps while averaging 10 targets per game. Eddie Lacy (ankle) was limited in his first Thursday participation in nearly a month. Coach Mike McCarthy said Lacy looked good in the full-pads practice.
