Randall Cobb did not suit up for Friday night’s preseason game against Seattle despite early optimism from Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy that the wide receiver could play after missing the two previous games with a bicep injury.

Cobb returned to practice in a limited capacity on Wednesday, but the team continues to bring him back slowly from the injury, which has lingered throughout camp and forced him out of practice for a week.

Also sitting out for the Packers: Tight end Matthew Mulligan (arm), cornerback James Nixon (ankle, knee), safety Sean Richardson (neck), cornerback Tramon Williams (knee), tackles J.C. Tretter (ankle), Derek Sherrod (leg) and Bryan Bulaga (knee), receiver Jordy Nelson (knee) and defensive end Jerel Worthy (knee).

Outside linebacker Andy Mulumba (knee) and defensive lineman Datone Jones (ankle) were not among the initial list of players who won’t dress, but there’s no guarantee either will play. Mulumba, an undrafted rookie out of Eastern Michigan, was taking part in some individual testing drills before Friday’s game.

The Seahawks’ non-participants include receivers Percy Harvin, Sidney Rice and Bryan Walters, fullback Michael Robinson, cornerbacks Tharold Simon and Ron Parker, defensive linemen Cliff Avril, Jesse Williams, Chris Clemons, Jordan Hill and Greg Scruggs, linebackers Ty Powell and Korey Toomer, and offensive lineman James Carpenter.
