Coach Mike McCarthy says Randall Cobb has come off his injury excellent and "looks like the Randall" of old.

Statements like that have fantasy owners drooling. Cobb already made for a great play in PPR leagues, but if he truly is like the Cobb of old, then there should be a some more red zone opportunities as well, giving him strong value in standard leagues as well.He's easily draftable within the first four or five rounds, so consider him an automatic start each week.

Brandon Bostick (leg) did not practice Monday.

Bostick is slotted as the #2 tight end for the Packers and could turn into a solid fantasy sleeper if he can gain the starting role, and carve out a role in Aaron Rodgers' offense. Monitor him closely over the next few days to see if he will suit up for their season opener on Thursday. If he cannot play, expect Andrew Quarless to move into the #2 tight end spot.

Brad Jones (quad) was limited in practice Monday.

He is working to be ready for the Thursday night opener against the Seahawks, but he is not a sure thing at this point. His availability to start will depend on Tuesday's practice and the walk through on Wednesday.

Green Bay corner Tramon Williams says the Packers defense will be more versatile in 2014 after studying defenses like the 49ers.

While it's never bad to hear fluff, it's difficult to extrapolate or Defensive rankings up or down based on a comment like this. According to footballoutsiders.com, however, the Packers were second to last in weighted defense. It's welcomed news, although it means little.

Packers signed S Chris Banjo, CB Jumal Rolle, TE Justin Perillo and OL Jeremy Vujnovich to their practice squad.

The Packers jumped in on signing players to their practice squad, and no player from this group will be on the roster any time soon unless an injury occurs.

Packers starting ILB Brad Jones returns to practice Sunday from a quadriceps injury that sidelined him at the end of camp/preseason. 

This is good news for the Packers defense, though they will still have their hands full with the Seahawks Week 1.

Packers signed Myles White to their practice squad.

The Packers have a lot of depth at wide receiver, and they would need a ton of injuries for White to see meaningful playing time.

Packers G Andrew Tiller (calf), RB Rajion Neal (knee) and LB Joseph Thomas (knee) were released with injury settlements Saturday.

The Packers are just tidying up their roster right now, so they're just getting a few names out of the way here with the injury designations.

 Packers cut S Chris Banjo.

Banjo had a strong preseason, but the safety corp of Green Bay was too deep for the Packers' to keep Banjo as an extra safety. Banjo had a decent 2013, getting 19 tackles (17 solo).
