The Green Bay Packers haven’t had much luck in the injury department so far this season with multiple players on both sides of the football going down. The latest player bite by the injury bug in Green Bay is wide receiver Randall Cobb who may miss considerable time due to a leg injury according to Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com on Oct. 14:
The Green Bay Packers will not have leading receiver Randall Cobb for multiple weeks but could have receiver James Jones back in time for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns.
Fortunately for Green Bay, the team may be able to get James Jones back on the field against the Cleveland Browns in Week 7. Jones also went down with an injury against the Baltimore Ravens, but the injury wasn’t as serious as initially thought.
Along with Jones and Cobb being banged up, the Packers lost arguably one of their best defensive players recently with Clay Matthews fracturing his thumb. Matthews will miss at least three more weeks as a result of the broken thumb.
Rookie running back Eddie Lacy also suffered an injury earlier in the season going down with a concussion, but only missed one game as a result. Needless to say, the Packers have had their fair share of injury problems and will need to get healthy in order to compete in a highly competitive NFC North division.
