Packers’ Jared Cook suffers high ankle sprain

Packers tight end Jared Cook is expected to miss some time with a high ankle sprain.

Although there’s been no official word from the team and the Packers are on their bye this week, a high ankle sprain usually takes several weeks to heal, so it’s unlikely that he’d be on the field when they return in Week Five against the Giants.

Cook was seen in the Packers’ locker room on crutches and wearing a protective boot.

Through three games, Cook is fourth on the team with six catches.

While Cook is out, Richard Rodgers and Justin Perillo will get more playing time at tight end. Devon Cajuste could be called up from the practice squad if the Packers think they need a third healthy tight end on the roster.

  1. We haven’t seen a lot of Jared Cook so far but he’s lived up to his reputation so far. Injured for a few games each year, boneheaded decision like that 3rd down play in Minnesota where he ran a couple yards back in to prevent what would’ve been a key 1st down. Glimpses of how athletically gifted he is in the preseason.

  2. Big PACK guy here. Ugh. Can this team have any worse luck?? I was starting The Chef on my fantasy squad. Had high hopes. Looks like we’re back to the ROGERS-to-ROGERS connection. Could we worse, we’re lucky to be 2-1. Gonna be difficult to catch the vike’s this year, or even make the playoffs… GO PACK

  3. Number1fakefan, we are 2-1 through three games and Rodgers is one of the league leaders in TD passes…what makes you think we won’t make the playoffs, because we lost to your favorite team by a fg?

  4. BYE week, so maybe a little less chatter from the trolls.

    Probably not though as GB is always on their mind. It’s real creepy.

    Also – regarding the Packers ‘choking’ in big games comment from the Vike fan…

    Minnesota Vikings‡* 0 4 .000 1969,‡ 1973,* 1974,* 1976*

    Tee Hee…

    -Let’s be honest, the only stat that really matters is a championship.

    yeah they can have worse injury luck.. see minnesota vikings.. pretend rodgers had a dislocated knee, and lacey went down also. you have to make do

  6. Hey guise!

    Big time VIKES guy hear!

    I hope this guy isn’t to hurt. Otherwise the pack fans can say they have people injered. I want to be the only team that has anyone hurt! That way if we win we can say we overcame them to win, and if we lose, we have a bilt in excuse.

    We’d be 9-0 right now if it Teddy wasn’t hurt.

    You herd it hear ferst.

    SKOL

    Your a Fakefan and a Viking Fan no less… what a douche!

    Fortunately for the Packers… they have a cupcake schedule so catching the Vikings shouldn’t be all that difficult…(Assuming that is that Randall, who won’t be in the Pro-Bowl…can figure out how to cover WRs again…as right now each WR he faces has career days and likely will be in the Pro-Bowl with his help…)

    #1 Run Defense? Great…who runs when your passing game can’t be stopped?

    All things considered…..it’s a LOOOONNNNNGGGG Season to go… and at least the offense is trending back up again.

    Playoffs most likely a shoe in for Pack!!!

  8. The Packers have been there before and will be again. The Vikings are excited newbies tripping over themselves with premature enunciations.

    //////////////////////////////////////

    It’s the same exact Home/Away schedule as the Vikings, with the only differences being a very hot Falcons away game for the Packers versus a very cold Panthers away game for the Vikings, and home games for the Packers /Seattle and Vikings/Cardinals.

    If one’s a cupcake, so is the other.

  10. wow, Packer trolls using easy schedule as a means to win…lol…they’ve fallen this far! Even if somehow (doubtful) you find a play off spot with your easy schedule, you will lose badly in the WC round. Enjoy your two superbowl wins with 30 years of HOF QB play. You won’t sniff one for another 30 years.

    You make me laugh. The Vikings are the one team in the NFL owning not only the all-time record for postseason losses, but also the record for postseason one-and-done appearances.

    And you’re calling out the Packers after three wins.

    Maybe you should try to get past Wide Left first? Maybe?

    Better than not having sniffed one at all. ever.

  13. We have the hardest schedule in the NFC North because we have Carolina and the Cards. The positive is that we would win a tiebreaker with strength of schedule. So a so- called “easy” NFL schedule (if there’s even such a thing) isn’t necessarily a good thing.

    Lose the head to head….again……resorting to talking about past Super Bowl glory…..again……so typical in Cheeseland
    ////////////////////////////////////////

    Do you know why we speak of past SuperBowl glory? Because reputations are built on what you do, not what you say you’re going to do.

    How would a Viking fan understand?

  15. You would think Viking fans would take some joy from being 3-0, except they’re still acting like the sore losers they’ve always been.

    I could not be more proud of Packer fans and the great example they set for the peasant fan base of that MN outfit.
