Randall Cobb released from hospital

Saints Packers Football 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.

    As much as losing hurt to watch last night, I doubt we would’ve had Cobb back by the NFCCG. Get ’em next year. GPG.

  2. stellarperformance says: Jan 17, 2016 3:51 PM

    They should’ve gotten Janis more playing time ten games ago.

  3. tmcb7 says: Jan 17, 2016 3:51 PM

    great reporting…. what the hell was the injury? for god’s sake! this tells us nothing.

  4. brettfavreisapacker4ever says: Jan 17, 2016 3:56 PM

    Randall had a bruised lung. He was throwing up blood after the injury. They carted him off and took him to the closest hospital who kept him overnight for observation.

    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.

  6. deltaoracle says: Jan 17, 2016 3:58 PM

    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.

  7. raiderrob21 says: Jan 17, 2016 4:03 PM

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

  8. filthymcnasty3 says: Jan 17, 2016 4:10 PM

    Glad to see that Cobb is ok. The Packers new motto should be “next platoon up.”

  9. pkrlvr says: Jan 17, 2016 4:14 PM

    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.

  10. gtodriver says: Jan 17, 2016 4:19 PM

    Wishing Cobb a speedy, full recovery.

  11. immafubared says: Jan 17, 2016 4:21 PM

    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.

    Dude is made of glass.

  13. cheeseisfattening says: Jan 17, 2016 4:25 PM

    I am glad he is feeling better. Too bad for him he has to leave the hospital hearing the face of his team crying like a little kid.

  14. filthymcnasty3 says: Jan 17, 2016 4:26 PM

    Somebody needs to ask the Viking fans what the heck were supposed to do with this participant ribbon.

  15. immafubared says: Jan 17, 2016 4:27 PM

    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.

  16. cjpackfan says: Jan 17, 2016 4:28 PM

    not making any sense here bud….all of those mentioned players are Teds picks save for Guion

  17. bobnelsonjr says: Jan 17, 2016 4:28 PM

    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.

  19. jimmysee says: Jan 17, 2016 4:35 PM

    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!

    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.

    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.

  24. purpleguy says: Jan 17, 2016 4:58 PM

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

  25. golforepar says: Jan 17, 2016 4:58 PM

    araani, got the chores done and came on here to be classless as always. An injury post.

  26. fanofpft says: Jan 17, 2016 5:05 PM

    Considering how he filled in as #1 this season. He may have fewer supporters than he thinks.

  27. tfrancisco77 says: Jan 17, 2016 5:06 PM

    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.

  28. beedubyatoo says: Jan 17, 2016 5:24 PM

    Vikings got what they deserved for signing Packer castoffs.

  29. shlort says: Jan 17, 2016 5:38 PM

    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.

  30. eddielionhead says: Jan 17, 2016 5:48 PM

    Cobb is a good player, hope he is ok. from the boys in Detroit

  31. steelpenguin6687 says: Jan 17, 2016 5:58 PM

    Glad to hear he’s ok. Even though it was called back, that was a heck of a catch he made.

  32. brook275 says: Jan 17, 2016 6:09 PM

    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.

  33. milkcan44 says: Jan 17, 2016 6:16 PM

    Abbrederis + Janis > Wallace + Wright + Patterson + Johnson + Thielen

  34. jhtobias says: Jan 17, 2016 6:20 PM

    randall great news!! Viking fan should concentrate on drafting a qb that can throw it more than 30 yards downfield

    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.

  37. ariani1985 says: Jan 17, 2016 6:54 PM

    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!

  40. stellarperformance says: Jan 17, 2016 7:28 PM

    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.

  41. gophersnot says: Jan 17, 2016 8:03 PM

    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.

  42. leshon42 says: Jan 17, 2016 8:13 PM

    Janis knows one route..straight the others he cannot run right = no AROD Confidence in him

  43. filthymcnasty3 says: Jan 17, 2016 8:21 PM

    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.

    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.

  51. marttizzle says: Jan 18, 2016 5:18 AM

    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!

  52. screamingyellowzonkers says: Jan 18, 2016 6:02 AM

    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?

  53. andrwken says: Jan 18, 2016 8:47 AM

    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!

  54. stellarperformance says: Jan 18, 2016 10:39 AM

    Should’ve gone for two.

  55. watmain03 says: Jan 18, 2016 2:33 PM

    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.

  56. tatatoothy68 says: Jan 18, 2016 7:28 PM

    Randall Cobb should be released from the Packers. What a nuthin year that guy had…..
