Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was limited at practice on Wednesday, a day after leaving early with a bicep injury.

Cobb insisted he is fine and that the team is simply being cautious due to injuries some of his teammates already have sustained during training camp. It includes fellow wide receiver Jordy Nelson, who had knee surgery on Monday and will miss the rest of the preseason.

Cobb was in pads but didn't take part in the team periods. He was mostly restricted to individual work and running, but said he expects to play against the Arizona Cardinals on Friday

I dont think its anything to be worried about, Cobb said. I feel fine. I plan to play unless told otherwise.

He does not know how or when he injured the bicep, only that he started feeling pain in the area.

We do play a physical game, and thats part of it, Cobb said. We know there are going to be injuries. We just hope that we can keep them to a minimum.

Cobb, meanwhile, has been impressed early on with some of the other young receivers on the team, especially Jeremy Ross and Jarrett Boykin.

They are getting a lot more comfortable and not getting as stressed, he said. They play more free because they have that confidence that has been built up the past year. Its fun to see their confidence
grow.

I think its the understanding of the offense and what all our roles are going to be. They have the ability to make those plays.
