Packers WR Nelson probable for Sunday's game

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The Green Bay Packers are looking forward to the return of Jordy Nelson this weekend.

The availability of fellow receiver Randall Cobb for the regular-season finale at division rival Minnesota on Sunday is uncertain. While Nelson is probable to play after being out the last three games because of a hamstring injury, Cobb is questionable after he had limited work in practice Friday.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy says the team will know more about Cobb's status Saturday morning before the team departs for Minneapolis.

The Packers (11-4) would clinch the No. 2 seed in the NFC and a first-round bye in the playoffs by beating the Vikings (9-6), who are vying for a wild-card berth.
