Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb will reportedly be ready to play in week 1, despite the shoulder injury he suffered against Philadelphia.
Cobb says he’ll be ready, but there still seems to be a bit of uncertainty surrounding the injury.
“I don’t plan on missing a game,” Cobb said. “I’m doing everything in my power to get back before then, but we still don’t know severity. We’ve still got to get a lot of the swelling out. It definitely is a lot better then what we all thought it was in the beginning.”
Cobb has a sprained A-C joint, which typically takes a week or two to heal. He’s lucky in that the injury could have been much worse. There was speculation that he broke his collarbone or separated his shoulder.
Neither proved to be the case.
However, the Packers haven’t set a timetable for Cobb’s return and it sounds like there’s good reason for that. No one really knows how bad the injury is yet.
So, we’ll keep holding our breath.
