Green Bay Packers fans had a little scare yesterday when they watched Randall Cobb get carted off the field.
The Packers haven’t released an update on the wide receivers injury but most reports claim that the knee injury isn’t too serious.
Jordy Nelson said after the game last night: “We’re always worried when someone goes out… As far as I know, it’s not possibly as bad as it could have been. So, hopefully that stays the course. We’ll find out more this week and hopefully it’s a quick recovery. We’ll miss them when they’re gone.”
Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Cobb is expected to have an MRI today and that the team will decide how to proceed once they get the results back.
Bleacher Reports notes that Cobb may have avoided a serious injury this weekend but it’s still unlikely that he’ll suit up next weekend. The Packers are expected to provide an update on Randall Cobb’s injury later today.
Cobb was injured when Baltimore Ravens safety Matt Elam hit him in the knees after a reception. Several people, including Aaron Rodgers, said that Elam’s hit was dirty.
Rodgers said: “I just felt like, from my vantage point, he had plenty of time to not take out a guy’s legs in that situation… I think he could have hit him in the proper hitting zone, and that’s what I told him.”
