Robison active, Cobb inactive
CB Antoine Winfield will play and was also listed as questionable with a fractured bone in his hand, but he has been expected to be available all week.
Also inactive for the Vikings are QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson, WR Stephen Burton, CB Brandon Burton, S Robert Blanton, LB Audie Cole, T Troy Kropog and DE D'Aundre Reed.

Cobb was listed as questionable on Friday's injury report.
Also for Green Bay, RB James Starks and S Charles Woodson were ruled out during the week, and CB Davon House was listed as doubtful on Friday. They join LB Terrell Manning, WR Donald Driver and DT Joran Miller on the inactive list.
