Wide receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson and tight end Jermichael Finley all participated fully in practice on Thursday after being limited on Wednesday.

The Green Bay Packers offense is nearing full strength as wide receivers Randall Cobb and Jordy Nelson returned to full participation in practice on Thursday, as did tight end Jermichael Finley. All three players were limited on Wednesday with various injuries, but were full participants on Thursday and are expected to play on Saturday against the Minnesota Vikings.

Cobb missed the Week 17 game against the Vikings due to an ankle injury. He was the Packers leading receiver on the season with 80 receptions for 954 yards and eight touchdowns.

Nelson looked the least likely to play early in the week with a knee injury, but now he appears ready as well. Nelson caught 49 passes for 745 yards and seven touchdowns in 12 games this season.

Finley was slowed early in the week by a quadriceps injury, but will be ready for Saturday. He caught 61 passes for 667 yards and two touchdowns this season.

Wide receiver Jarrett Boykin (ankle), cornerback Tramon Williams (illness), and defensive end Jerel Worthy (knee) did not practice on Thursday. Worthy has already been ruled out for Saturday. Running back James Starks was limited on Thursday with a knee injury. Starks has been out since the first game between the Vikings and Packers this season on Dec. 2.

Cornerback Charles Woodson was a full participant again on Thursday and remains on track to play in his first game since breaking his collarbone Oct. 21.
