The Green Bay Packers were hopeful that the hit on Randall Cobb was not season ending. On Monday, the Packers received the news about Cobb’s leg injury. While he doesn’t have any structural damage to the knee, Cobb did sustain a fractured fibula. According to NFL.com, Randall Cobb was expected to be out for multiple weeks.
Now it looks like that the Packers might be in more desperate need of a wide receiver. The new timetable of Cobb’s return to the team is between 8-12 weeks. With that prognosis, it’s conceivable that we won’t see Cobb in uniform until next season. Right now, the best possible scenario is for Cobb to come back in week 16. Yet, that’s only if Green Bay is solidifying their playoff seed.
If Cobb is able to return in the previously reported six weeks like Ian Rapoport stated, then he’ll have plenty of time to get reintegrated into the offensive system.
According to CBSsportsline.com, the Packers were looking into rookie Tavarres King. However, the Denver Broncos have no intention of letting King get snatched from their practice squad.
Mike McCarthy did announce that James Jones has a chance to play this week after spraining his PCL in Sunday’s game.
