Sigh of relief, everybody!
After his MRI, #Packers WR Randall Cobb has an AC joint sprain, source said. It’s minor. No word on Week 1, but could have been much worse

That’s great news. Cobb initially thought he had a broken collarbone. That notion was quickly dispelled when he received x-rays in the Lambeau Field locker room during the game.
Other sources had it being a separated shoulder, which wouldn’t have been season-ending, but also likely would have meant Cobb would be sidelined for week 1 and playing through pain when he did get on the field.
Obviously, there’s no timetable on Cobb’s return yet, but a low-level AC sprain typically requires one to two weeks to heal.
That certainly puts Cobb’s availability for week 1 at better than 50 percent.
Thank God — can’t afford to lose him for any time. He needs to be ready to rock and roll by Week #1!
Did Monty write this article? I don’t think he did or it would say something along the lines of ass clown trainers saying it’s minor and then we should really expect Randall to miss 7-11 weeks while they figure out what the real diagnosis is.
I like Monty. He says it how it is, he doesn’t sugar coat shit and most of the time he ends up right. I wouldn’t be surprised if Cobb ends up missing 20 days over a “sprain”
I honestly don’t believe now that Cobb is the primary receiver that he’s going to last the whole season. He’s a little guy catching balls over the middle.
You do realize that Cobb is the exact same size as the leading receiver in the NFL from 2014 right? He and Antonio Brown are the exact same size (5″10) and he actually weighs more than Brown. So your theory doesn’t hold much weight.
“Little guys” are not necessarily weak or injury prone. Big guys in the trenches are just as apt to get injured; if you don’t believe me, just check out the walking wounded along our OL.
Has anyone heard any updates on Hyde? Randall’s injury is getting all the attention (and rightfully so), but now that we know it’s just a sprain, I’m more concerned about Micah.
