Randall Cobb to miss another game

Getty Images

The Packers will be without wide receiver Randall Cobb again on Sunday against the Lions.

Cobb has already been ruled out with a hamstring injury, coach Mike McCarthy said today. It will be the second consecutive game Cobb has missed, after missing last week’s win over the Bills.

In Week One Cobb was the Packers’ top receiver, catching nine passes for 142 yards and a touchdown in the comeback win over the Bears. But in two games after that he totaled just eight catches, 52 yards and no touchdowns, and then he missed Week Four.

The injury situation facing the Packers at wide receiver goes beyond just Cobb. Davante Adams (calf) and Geronimo Allison (concussion) are also dealing with injuries. There’s no official word yet on whether either of them will play on Sunday. The Packers’ other receivers are Equanimeous St. Brown, J'Mon Moore and Marquez Valdes-Scantling.

  1. Yeah, this is a problem. But it’s all just part of our decline in Green Bay. On the bright side, a long cold winter is coming. We’ll watch hockey.

  2. As I wrote here last week, and will now say again, GB is really getting its money’s worth from Cobb’s $12 million cap hit, isn’t it?

    A number of people disliked my comment. Are you people brain dead?

  3. Well bondlake, Cobb along with Rodgers won the first game for them, so I’d say that earned part of the check, and who knows what will happen yet? I guess you do, but most people don’t have psychic abilities. Anyway, they’ll use Montgomery, and maybe the situation will force McCarthy to finally use Aaron Jones more, as he should be doing.

    Best case scenario this year; Cobb and Graham owned the middle of the field.

    Reality; – crickets –

    Cobb and Clay Matthews’ cap hits combined equal $23 million. Exactly what Khalil Mack is getting paid

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

    Great comment, hypothetical, losing Cobb and Clay to get Mack would have made the packers instant Super Bowl favorites.

  6. I, for one, am excited to see what the rookies can do. They are all fast, they are all relatively tall, and they haven’t seen the field much. Remember a playoff game a few years back vs. the Cardinals and the Packers were forced to play Jeff Janis and Jared Abbrederis. Both stepped up and made big time plays so as is often the case, you don’t know what you have till you play them.

  7. By midway through the first quarter, Packer fans will be watching DeShon Kizer trying to throw passes to Equanimeous St. Brown, J’Mon Moore and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. It won’t be pretty. Meanwhile, they’ll have to turn their attention and hope to the Brewers, yet when all is said and done the Brewer’s trophy case will still be empty. At least they still have beer and cheese.

    Jordy was not a slot receiver. Cobb is. Different positions.
    =====

    Don’t use him in the slot. Move Adams around.
    ????
    Makes no sense. Adams isn’t a slot receiver either. Educate yourself.

  9. I don’t read any of the troll post’s and that is the majority of the screen names in this particular thread which is creepy. The obsession with the Packers is very real.

    Good news:

    McCarthy said Geronimo has “made some progress” in the concussion protocol and there is “hope” that he will play.

    If Davante practices at all tomorrow I would assume he is a go as well.

  10. Makes no sense. Adams isn’t a slot receiver either. Educate yourself.

    At least you have that trophy case

    Do you think the Vikings will let me hide my kid’s Christmas presents in their trophy case again this season? Might as well use it for something.

  12. 10M for a guy who’s always in the tub. Cobb and Nick Perry should have been jettisoned years ago. Montgomery = Cobb.

    Meanwhile, Jordy is tearing it up in Oakland. As is Jared Cook.

    Packers front office is a joke. Twenty-six years with two HOF QB’s: Only 2 rings.

    Biggest underachievers in NFL past 30 years.

    At least we have depth and don’t have to resort to playing a stiff like Treadwell.

    ========

    What a stupid comment. ‘Depth?’ The rookies are just roster spots. They haven’t done a thing in a game yet. All they HAVE done is piss off Rodgers in camp.

  14. Meanwhile, Jordy is tearing it up in Oakland. As is Jared Cook.
    =====

    Cook was a bum.

    30 rec, 377 yards, 1 td.. good riddance. If not for that catch in the Cowboy game, nobody would remember he played for the team.

  15. My take all along with the weirdness of why the pack always lead the league in injuries as always been, Ted the genius never, ever paid attention like other GM’s did, to injury reports and injury proness.

    Take King. Ya he could be very good and a steel in the second round but he was there because 31 other teams saw that he missed two big parts of two seasons with major shoulder injuries.
    Didnt take long for him to re injure his once he started playing pro ball. Now its hamstrings and or concussions. This guy is not nfl tough and other GM.s got it.

  16. Packers front office is a joke. Twenty-six years with two HOF QB’s: Only 2 rings.
    =====

    1992-1994 they were still undoing DECADES of bad culture.

    1999-2000.. rebuild

    2005-2006.. rebuild

    I wish Favre and Rodgers each had another Ring or 2. But other than the Patriots and Steelers, who has been dramatically better over the last 25 years?

  17. Keep Cobb out until the Rams game after the bye… get well instead of re-aggravating it (as with Fournette). When healthy Cobb is a valuable asset, but not when he’s gimpy. Time for the kids (St. Brown, Moore and Valdes-Scantling) to step up and show they belong.

    Put down the pipe. Cook was jelling with Rodgers late that year and Rodgers wanted him back.

    Right back at ya.

    Career high receptions: 54
    Career high yards: 759 (7 years ago..)
    Career high tds: 5

    8 tds since 2014…

    .. why are we even talking about this guy?

  20. Both Cobb and Jordy should have been cut, and a decent midrange FA WR (e.g., Pryor) should have been signed. Cobb can’t stay healthy. Jordy had one good game in Oakland and even in that game he was tackled from behind by a linebacker. They should just move Montgomery back to WR since the RB position finally looks decent.

    ___________

    Because he has 26 receptions for 370 yards and 2 TDs this year. He’s on pace to beat all of his career highs by Week 10.

    That said, I have no doubt he would be the same guy with the Packers that he was in 2016. Rodgers just doesn’t use the tight end.

  22. It’s incredible how disrespectful packer fans are to a player that has done so much for that franchise. most spoiled fanbase in the NFL.

    ——

    Laughable.

    Jordy hasn’t amassed more than 6 receptions in any game this year. almost half his yardage for the year (273 yards) came on two plays. They should have cut Jordy and Cobb.

    Cook is not worth talking about.

    I mean if you want to be so negative about it, at lease call a spade a spade.

    Neither Jordy or Cobb improves this team. Cook is not as good as Graham. Get the young kids in there and let them build some chemistry with Rodgers. This team needs some athletes on the field at the WR position. Cobb and Jordy scare no one anymore.

    Since 1961 (the year the sun started rising everyday,) the Vikings have had more HOF, All-Pro, and Pro-Bowl designee quarterbacks than the Packers.You read it right. Look it up. What, big mouth, is the Vikings’ excuse?

    —–

    Cook is not as good as what we have now with the Graham/Lewis.

    Let’s see how they are jelling with Rodgers at the same point this year….

  26. “Cobb and Clay Matthews’ cap hits combined equal $23 million. Exactly what Khalil Mack is getting paid.”

    Maybe for this year, yes, both both Cobb and Clay come off the cap for next year unless they are re-signed and they aren’t getting near the big money they got in their second deals. Meanwhile, Mack will be very expensive for a very long time. Not really doable or smart with Aaron’s deal done. Meanwhile, the draft is strong in pass rushers next year and GB has 2 first rounders.

    If you have the highest paid player on both sides of the ball on your team, there ain’t gonna be room to pay WRs or offensive linemen or the secondary. etc.

  27. Jordy is tearing it up in OAK? No. He tore it up against MIA, who has one of the lower rated pass defenses in the NFL. And much of that game was on one catch. Other than that? Not much. And that’s why he’s gone. Plus he’s 33 while Cobb is 5 years younger. GB needed speed on the outside, and Jordy don’t have it no more. So he’s not worth a ton of bucks.

    Plus, let’s see if JOrdy finishes the season strong, or wears out and does nothing the second half, like last year.

  28. In the Packers last 36 regular season games Randall Cobb had over 60 yds in a game 6 times. Geronimo Allison, seven times. Including four this season.

    Allison’s second concussion is concerning but he’s clearly become the Packers #2 option. And I imagine they will put a 2nd round tender on him in the upcoming off-season.

  29. Stellar said it right, despite not fact checking him. Purple had a ton of HOF QBs WRs RBS and never win a thing. I’ll take what they call Packer failure = 2 Superbowls, compared to Viking Success = no Super Bowls but really nice training facilities and an hall of fame, MVP 4 game run by a rookie who can’t apparently finish a season.

    ………………………………………………

    Says a Vike fan with four (4) super bowl losses. What farce the Vikings are. 4 losses…and they still think they can trash talk?

    You can say only 2 Superbowl’s but the reality is 4 wins for the Pack. Of course you probably want to forget Super Bowl IV when the Chiefs mopped the field with Joe Kapp.

    I honestly cannot imagine wanting to be a Viking fan…senseless.
