Randall Cobb will be sidelined for “multiple weeks”

Posted by Duke Bobber on October 14, 2013 – 3:20 pm

Packers WR Randall Cobb

The Packers will be without both WR Randall Cobb and LB Nick Perry in Week 7’s contest with the Cleveland Browns. Perry suffered a foot injury in Sunday’s 19-17 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

“He does not have a chance to play this week,” Head Coach Mike McCarthy said of Perry’s status.

Cobb’s knee injury will sideline him for “multiple weeks,” according to McCarthy, while WR James Jones (knee) may have a chance to face the Browns.

The first official weekly injury report will not be announced until Wednesday afternoon.

    What this means is Cobb will miss the rest of the season!

    this means that cobb will be back right before playoffs. thats what this means. he wont be out for the year

    There are 11 games left. Multiple weeks just means more than one. We don’t know how many more than one, but it doesn’t mean the season.

    Cobb will be back just in time for the playoff push

    Adam Schefter on ESPN says Cobb will miss two weeks. I don’t know how long Perry will be out

    Ravens should be fined for that hit to cobb.

    I think the Pack can beat CLE & MN with Jordy, Finley, Boykin, Lacey and Franklin. Losing perry hurts a bit but hayward and maybe Jones should be back. Worthy and Sherrod ready to return soon too. Maybe matthews & Cobb can return in time for bears. Perry may be out longest if foot is really broken. Starks should be back for Bears too. Yes, players are coming and going in both directions this time of the year. Meanwhile fill-ins get valuable experience. Returnees will not be worn down for final 4-6 weeks of season. That could prove to be a winning formula. Arod needs to stay healthy throughout. Go Pack!

    Face reality, Cobb is lost for the season, he may even be in jeopardy of losing his career. Look how this punk zeros in on his knee. Nobody can’t tell me he could’ve gone higher. This was the CHEAP SHOT of all cheap shots.

    Tough news. Hopefully, the outlook for James is as positive as it sounds right now. Between our WRs and LBs, what a hot mess for management.

    On a good note, Casey Hayward might be back this week.

    I think Perry gets hurt just walking on to the field! He is this year’s Neal and Harrell….Cobb is a big loss because of his quickness and ability to make something out of nothing.

    Kengr, Nick Perry’s foot was actually caught under Eugene Monroe’s bum after the FF.

    Is that the best we can get on the injury? A statement about “multiple weeks”? Is it an MCL sprain? What type of injury is it?

  16. By CLARK on Oct 14, 2013 | Reply

    What they should do is play J Franklin as a Wide Receiver while Cobb is out, he is quick enough and would be similiar to Cobb. The only thing that would be tough is for Franklin to learn the plays for the Receiver position.

    Cobb was scheduled for an MRI 1 hour before MM’s news conference. Seriously doubt any prognosis was readily available to MM prior to the news conference.

    Totally agree with @CLARK.. Use Franklin as RB/WR to emulate Cobb. Cut Bush since we signed Nixonj; then sign Myles White to roster for WR depth for the time being

    If any of you saw the replay,the hit wasn’t that bad! I thought it was a cheap hit,but when you look at the replay it really wasn’t.The big problem is that players are trying to stay away from hitting high because of all the new rules! I say Cobb will be back in 3 to 4 weeks and if Jones isn’t back next week, he’ll be back for Vikings!

    Why the heck are people always saying “Perry broke his foot?” This is the 3rd time I hear that today. Is it real or are they just haters cuss I haven’t heard it from any official sites yet..

  30. By ShowMeYourTD's on Oct 14, 2013 | Reply

    Cobb will be back before we know it and for the time being why not just go sign a free agent to a one year deal like Brandon Lloyd or Devery Henderson? There are plenty of decent receivers on FA.

    WOW. It is AMAZING that we have so many psychics that can see the future. Since you know so much, why don’t you go do something useful. The rest of us will wait for the facts.

    Give Perry a break he just isn’t football ready……

    With all these injuries at the linebacker position might the Packers play a little more 4-3 on defense?

    Cobb has broken leg & will be out 6 to 8 weeks.

  35. By Gary on Oct 14, 2013 | Reply

    I agree with others who suggest we bring back Driver. I heard he’s staying in “Game Shape” just in case he gets just such a call. Let’s start the ‘BRING DRIVER BACK” mantra right now! He could be ready to play by Sunday.

  36. By Shantaye on Oct 14, 2013 | Reply

    I heard Nick Perry has “turf toe”. Best thing to do is rest because these seem to cause lingering foot and hamstring injuries.

    JJ should rest until we play Chicago.
    Cobb should be back in time for Dallas Clay too.
    Casey will be back for Minnesota.

    Im looking forward to Mike McCarthy to open up the playbook against Cleveland. More two tight end sets or two back with Lacy and Franklin both on the field.

    Look guys, Nick Perry is one thing to say injury prone, maybe but its too early to tell. But, to say Cobb is? This is the first time since he’s been a rookie that he’s been seriously hurt. Things happen in the WR position a specially with the new rules, their all more prone for leg injury’s. Lets cool off MM will always have a plan and honestly Boykin looked really good in Pre-Season and I think he’ll be game ready next week getting first string rep’s in practice.

    Reports coming out late this afternoon say that Cobb broke his leg. I think that means the season for him this year.

    Check more sources boys & girls, JSOnline reports Cobb will be out 6-8 weeks, no timeline on Perry and Jones could play this week.

    Wow, some of the comments on here. If you don’t know what you’re talking about then please don’t say anything. This is the “Official Packers Blog” not the “I know way more about football than anyone ever so I’m going to say whatever I want even though it’s completely irrelevant and/or untrue” blog. Truth is we don’t know much about Cobb’s injury and for anyone who hasn’t actually seen the guy in person shouldn’t say anything because there is no way for you to know.

    Did anyone ever notice how many head hits and questionable hits the Packers always take and still bounce back for a great season? Look how many injuries they took during the Super Bowl year and won it all. Maybe the great coaching and personnel management by the organization has something to do with this success. Maybe the other teams realize how great the Packers are and they need to level the playing field a bit with dirty or questionable hits. Maybe the game is becomming so fast and reactive that a quick choice must be made to stop the play. I do see more sure wrap-up tackles by the Packers rather than a lot of hits to the legs. Again, good coaching. Congrats. to MM and his coaching staff to this style, but maybe the team needs more conditioning to be able to withstand this type poor fundamental coaching of the rest of the league. I’m just saying! Look how the hit list was stopped in it’s tracks two years ago with Sean Patton. Don’t blame the league and the commisioner for trying to protect the players, a valuable resource!

    Pack ought to be fine at receiver, especially with the budding rush attack. Also, didn’t Donald Driver say he’d stay in shape in case the Packers came calling?

    Defense, on the other hand, is a little worrisome. Really going to put pressure on the fragile secondary loosing these outside guys. Good thing Hayward is on the mend.

    Cobb also broke both arms but he will be back in 6-8 weeks! You bozos who think he will be back that soon are smoking some wacky weed. The guy is going to be out for almost the whole regular season so DEAL WITH IT!!

    Packers WR Randall Cobb suffered fractured fibula in win over Ravens and will miss 6-8 weeks according to ESPN

  48. By Nate on Oct 14, 2013 | Reply

    I was at the Baltimore game watching from the end zone. Is Green Bay going to make a roster move and bring in more depth at WR? I’m worried about only having our #1 and #4 healthy enough to go.

  49. By Ty on Oct 14, 2013 | Reply

    Cobb probably will miss the rest of the season, but would be ready for playoffs if everything goes good. Seriously its not about the soonest possible time a player can come back, its better to not rush a recovery when it comes to a fracture. People now a days get so rapped up in that when someone goes down its time for others to step up. So the Packers are probably going to have to sign another WR to get them through the season and Jones should be back in a week or two.

    On a personal level, I just wish the best for Randall. Give him time to heal and recover. He has been a durable player here and at Kentucky (where he seemed to be involved in almost every offensive play). Yes, it did seem like a cheap shot to me. I, too, like the idea of Franklin in the slot. Perhaps WR Kevin Dorsey can soon play or WR Tyrone Walker who was good in pre-season (I think now on Seattle practice squad) can fill in. You could see the hit would be very painful almost before it happened. I think the league officials should react to the DB’s actions.

    Call up bus cook and let’s get Favre back on the field. #4 can play reciever better than the young guns and he never gets hurt.

  53. By Montanapackfan on Oct 17, 2013 | Reply

    Saying cobbs injury is season ending or even more ridiculous…career ending so early and without any competent backup is ludicrous. Peterson came back from knee surgery and led the league in rushing. Let’s wait a bit and have the professionals….doctors tell cobbs story.
