The Green Bay Packers will leave Randall Cobb as the team's kick and punt returner in spite of an ankle injury.
Cobb was injured when tackled returning a punt on Sunday.
Cobb leads the Packers in receiving.
"I'll be honest with you: I don't have a really high tolerance for this (line of questioning) because I don't understand how you play scared in the game of football. I don't get that," Mike McCarthy said. "I think it's convenient questioning. I understand the risk involved in every single play. Some plays are higher risk than others, and I'm fully aware of that.
"But you can't sit here and say special teams is important if you don't put a guy like Randall Cobb out there as a returner. Now, if we're sitting here next year, we might be having a different conversation. But the way our team is built for 2012, Randall Cobb is a huge part of our success on special teams."
