Everyone in Green Bay is concerned with when the Packers will get quarterback Aaron Rodgers back from his collarbone injury, but he’s not the only key member of the offense that the team would like to have in the lineup.
Wide receiver Randall Cobb is on injured reserve with the designation to return with an injured leg and will be eligible to play in the team’s final three regular season games. On Wednesday, Cobb called that a target date and said he still didn’t know whether he would hit that target.
“I can’t make that call right now,” Cobb said, via the Green Bay Press-Gazette. “Right now, today, I cannot play. I’m doing everything I can. I’m working my butt off in the rehab process. This is something that it needs time. It’s getting better. There’s still no timeline on when I can come back.”
Cobb also said that his injury wasn’t the fractured fibula that was widely reported when he got hurt last month, although the specific nature of the injury is ultimately of more significance to Cobb than to those interested in when he’ll be back on the field. They and the team will have to wait a bit longer to find out if that will be this season.
