Green Bay Packers fans were beside themselves after they witnessed Randall Cobb go down with a knee injury. It was the second one of the day after James Jones was forced to leave the field with a hurt leg. Cobb’s injury looked far more horrific though, which is why so many were concerned. As of right now, what shape is the wide receiver’s knee in?
Many were quick to point out that Cobb may have suffered an injury that would end his season after the way he reacted to the hit and how he moved around on crutches along the sideline in the second half of Sunday’s contest. However, the good news is it does not appear to be as bad as several people assumed.
“He’ll be OK,” an anonymous source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
Cobb is a tough player who overcomes big hits quite frequently. Obviously, that is somewhat irrelevant when he takes a helmet to the knee. With that being said, the fact that he was seen on the sidelines moving around, instead of sitting in the locker room, is certainly a great sign.
The Packers simply cannot afford to lose either Cobb or Jones. It was clear the offense struggled with both players missing. If Green Bay wants to march through the playoffs on their way to a Super Bowl berth, they will need two of their top three wide receivers to be in uniform and make plays on a consistent basis.
The Packers will reveal more information regarding Cobb and Jones on Monday.
