Randall Cobb released from hospital

AP

Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb tweeted Sunday that he’s been released from an Arizona hospital.

I’m feeling much better,” Cobb wrote. “Thank you all for the prayers and support.”

Cobb was injured while making a catch that was negated by penalty in the first quarter of Saturday night’s divisional playoff game. The team called it a chest injury; Cobb was carted off and did not return.

In Cobb’s absence the Packers got a huge game from Jeff Janis, who caught seven passes for 145 yards. Janis had two receptions during the regular season.

  1. Fans have been begging for Janis to see the field all season. Apparently DaVante Adams has got something on McCarthy, that’s all I can figure. Janis has the speed the offense has been missing alllllllll season.

  2. Down his top three WRs and 4 of his top 5, Rodgers and the reserves somehow almost pulled it out. They should all take some pride in that.

  3. Thanks for nothing in this article. Reporter is supposed to report the facts. Your missing the main fact. WHAT WAS THE DAMN INJURY?

  4. I’m proud of last night’s performance. Losing sucks but putting on such a terrific show makes it a little better. I think Janis has earned some considerable playing time next year and with both Nelson and Montgomery back we should have a helluva receiving core for the 2016 season. Hopefully we can pick up a good TE in the draft and some decent oline back ups. With the Vikings and Bears and even the lions looking up, next year should be a great one to be an NFC North fan.

  5. Packer fans have bigger problems asking why are we playing Adams who is so so and Abby and Janis sit on the bench? Why are we starting Lacy when Starks has looked and ran better and he brings speed to the backfield? Why are we playing Guin and Jones when 6’6 Pennel is big strong and did a fine job in pre season but bench sat most of the year. Answer: mike plays favorites to make ted’s draft picks look good. Adams sucked all year and Janis sat. What do they say about stupid, doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. Keep playing an over weight out of shape runner, a wide receiver who is a non factor each week.

  6. Packers are soft. I know why all the injuries. Ted does not take into account a players college injury record. Abby had a series of concussions at Wisconsin missed a lot of playing time. No one else wanted him for this reason Ted took him and he was in an out the lineup all year. Packers have a team full of players like this. Cobb included. Rollins Randall, datone Jones, Perry, batari, linsy, Bradford shields.

  7. Hopefully it was not a punctured lung.

    A healthy and recovered Packers team next season will be something special to enjoy.

    The Packers draft won’t be immediately significant because those guys will be sitting for awhile.

    Some lowly team with a high waiver position is going to pick up a great receiver when they cut a couple next summer.

    Why are you so obsessed with us? PFT, should we, as Packers fans, seek a restraining order from Vikings fans? Sure, it may seem like just an envious little sister type obsession now, but that’s how they always start. Soon they’ll be trying to eat bits of our skin to consume our power.

  9. Very happy Randall is ok.

    Get well in the off-season.

    Train hard.

    Looking forward to camp.

    Get Jeff Janis into the mix!

    Go!Pack!Go!

  10. One classy Viking fan post in a sea of posts from 4 year old Viking fans.

    Seems typical.

    They are just beginning to realize that the Packers were super injured and that’s literally the only reason they won the division.

    It’s also the only way they compete for the divisional crown again.

  11. Spitting up blood, but held onto the one handed circus catch. They don’t come any tougher.

    What a heroic effort last night. This legendary game won’t soon be forgotten.

  12. Hope he’s okay — don’t want to mess with lung injuries, particularly if there’s bleeding/clotting.

  13. From a Vikings fan…glad he’s okay and look forward to a great NFCN division next year.

    That was the best game I’ve seen since Favre lost us the game against NO.

  14. The Packers are going to be tough next year. Without a doubt an early super bowl contender for 2016. Fill some holes and get some players back, while avoiding the injury bug, and the Packers could win it all. They could be going for 2 in a row with some healthy guys this year and without an idiot who didn’t understand his assignments on the on sides kick last year. The Packers are loaded with talent. Look out.

  15. The reason Janis hasn’t played is that he wasn’t ready. There were 3-4 timing passes that Janis/abby was in the wrong place in the first half last night and the passes weren’t close. In the second half they dumbed it down and thru to them as oppose to blind timing passes. Can’t do that week in week out in the NFL.

    Ha ha ha. The Packers were not good this year, and we’re very lucky to go 10-6 and make the playoffs. And you somehow have them as a favorite to win the SB next year?!

    Below average receivers. Horrible o-line. Average defense. Below average special teams. And a QB that didn’t play well half the games. Yep. Sounds like upper echelon to me.

  17. Soft and small makes it very tough to be a good WR in the league! Hopefully he is available for the parade for the Packers off season championship game? I will be in the front row, I hope he throws me one of his participate ribbons he has been collecting!

    This is embarrassing.

  19. arianal….haven’t you heard? For recognition of the Vikings NFL league record 26 post season losses since the 1970 merger, the NFL will be awarding an annual Participation Trophy called “The Walsh.” The couldn’t decide from all the choke failures which would be best….Favre, Anderson, 41-0, 0-4 Super Bowls…..so that went with the most recent. The Vikings will be the first recipient.

    Congratulations! Don’t let anybody ever say again that your team doesn’t have any trophies.

  20. I’m glad Cobb is ok and that the Packers season is over. The karma is the troll who laughs when people of Minnesota die in bridge accidents got to watch his team choke live.

  21. I suspect that all these Viking fan tantrums have to do with the outpouring of league wide respect and love for the Packers and their beloved fans over the past 24 hours. This has made their degenerate fans even more bitter than usual.

    Add to that all the tricky underwear stain in laundries throughout MN today, and it becomes easier to understand all their emotional outbursts.

    Kinda like the vikings playoff record. Zero for forever in championships. Lost 4 out of 4 SuperBowls by an average of 15 points per game. Yeah, the vikings have an awesome playoff record.

    Oops, sorry. I forgot about the annual offseason championships your vikings win every year.

    And on good side of the river, we didn’t have any injuries?

  24. Jerry, I just said that we (on the good side of the river) suffered a lot of injuries.

    Reading comprehension classes, maybe?

    The Packers were the most injured team this year, and Minnesota was 15th.

    Also, you weren’t missing pro-bowl caliber players, like the Packers were.

    The end.

    >

  25. In the end the Greenbay Packers are garbage! Normally they would look back after chocking in the playoffs as usual and say at least we won our division! Lmao!

    My Vikings well dominate 2016 and the Packers are in the decline!

  26. It was a great game to watch.
    Cobb landed on his back.
    How did his lung get punctured?

    So, one day after the season, packer fans are already predicting a Super Bowl win for the next two years?

    Really?

  27. Abbredaris and Janis filled in nicely this weekend but come on people, these are not starting receivers.

    Janis has one route in his arsenal and at 175 lbs. I have a hard time believe Abby will finish a complete season in his career. Just look back to the Lions game where he got tagged on the sideline. Now let’s have a linebacker square him up over the middle.

    This team needs to look around this year at WR. If Jordy loses a step from this injury, we could be looking at the same problems next year with this passing game. I think Minnesota should cut Mike Wallace seeing as they don’t know how to get him the ball!

  28. hope that Cobb recovers well.

    it seems odd that most of the post are bashing a team, someone posting or someone from another team taking shots. If you are trying to get under someone’s skin it is weak, I have been a Packer fan since 1962 and have seen a lot of good and a lot worse than this season. It was not stellar but better than 4-12. All teams have issues and everyone thinks they can solve them. It is not easy or we would all be managing teams or playing.
