Whether this is news or not would probably depend on your stature in the medical community. Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb still isn’t 100 percent.
Before you get too bent out of shape, we still fully expect Cobb to play on Sunday, but he will apparently be playing in pain.
Randall Cobb will play today, but not 100%. Likely to wear extra protection on shoulder. Admitted recently still painful, tough to sleep.

Cobb sprained the AC joint in his shoulder during the Packers’ third preseason game. He has practiced all week, albeit on a limited basis and is listed as probable for the Packers matchup with the Chicago Bears.
Here’s an actual doctor telling us Cobb’s risk of further injury is minimal.

Really, the only remaining question is, how effective will Cobb be?
Let’s light these clowns up so he can spend the majority of the game on the sidelines
So now the NFL has some dipshit doctor with a twitter account who is going to give his opinion on every players medical situation? Just like they have former referees on tv trying to explain all the bullshit calls that are made.. wtf. First off this can’t be Cobbs doctor because it’s illegal to talk about patients outside of your practice, let alone broadcast it over the internet. And whether he’s likely to injure his shoulder further or not, being that this is not Cobbs doctor who the fuck is this guy to make comments about someone he hasn’t even examined? As if just saying “he’s going to play” wasn’t enough.
Have him sit until he is needed. Show team what “team” is all about. Feel confident we can beat da Bears without Randall. Go Pack Go!!!
