Packers receiver Randall Cobb caught four passes for 95 yards in the first half of Green Bay’s Week 12 victory over the Rams. But Cobb wasn’t able to finish that game as an injury kept him out of the second half.

Now even after the bye, it sounds like Cobb is going to be out for multiple weeks.

Head coach Matt LaFleur said on Thursday that Cobb is going to be out for a while.

“He had a pretty significant injury,” LaFleur said, via Wes Hodkiewicz of the Packers website. “That’s unfortunate because he’s done such an amazing job when given the opportunity.”

That Week 12 contest was Cobb’s most productive game of the season. In his first year back with the Packers since 2018, Cobb has caught 28 passes for 375 yards with five touchdowns.

LaFleur told reporters that a variety of players can fill in Cobb’s role as a slot receiver, including Davante Adams, Allen Lazard, Equanimeous St. Brown, and rookie Amari Rodgers.

The Packers play the Bears this week on Sunday Night Football.

  1. Cobb was doing much better than I expected. His main value was in his ability to be on the same page with Rodgers, which meant coming up big on 3rd down and near the goal line.

  2. St. Brown has started to step up, and I think he’s the best option for more touches. Amari Rodgers needs to start doing something beside fumbling punts if he wants to stick.

  3. Really soft. Our Vikings employ true ironmen like Dani Hunter, Thielen, Dalvin, Harrison. Those guys never miss a game.

  4. Guy is literally made of glass..just think they are paying him 12 million dollars and are in cap hell.

  5. I demanded they bring Cobb here and now he can’t play. You can’t rely on anyone these days. I wanted to show Gute and Murphy who’s boss but everything’s going kaput, even my pinky toe. Why? Why?

  6. He’s physically injured. However, mentally, he’s just fine. As are all the Packers.

  7. Nobody is mentally sain if you have to live in the arm pit of society known as green bay.
