Randall Cobb Says He’ll Play, But Doesn’t Sound Totally Sure

Randall Cobb

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.

    Definitely hope all is well with him come week 1. He’s made some clutch plays against the bears and I cant wait to see him back on the field. Only imagine what we all would be going through if he actually expected more cash to play somewhere else. Go pack go. Lets keep our fingers crossed our wr battle gets figured out n we leave this last pre season game healthy.

    I don’t mind him sitting out a couple of games. I really want to get Janis and Montgomery in There. They big and fast. Get some better redzone success.

    First play of season. Bomb to Janis on a wheel route. Boom. TD.

      The good news is the bears gave new meaning to the term 0 coverage last year in their coverage schemes for Jordy. The bad news is both of the hero’s (Mundy and Jennings) who performed the no coverage scheme 2 or 3 times against Jordy have been cut or are on IR.

    So sick of hearing about it…either play or don’t.

    Church Lady, I’m going to help explain how this works for you. People don’t know if Mr. Cobb is going to play, but they want to know. So they ask. Mr. Cobb doesn’t know if he’ll be healed by then because medical staff doesn’t know the severity of his injury. So Mr. Cobb is forced to respond that he doesn’t know for sure if he’ll play. That’s how these situations generally work. I recommend that you do not read articles about things you’re sick of hearing about, because, you know, you don’t have to.

    Let him sit, I’m not the least bit scared of the Bears, and Rodgers and MM need to put their pride aside and force themselves to work with the young receivers to help do some team building with them. Get some chemistry, get some trust, and do it the effing hard way for once! With no Jordy Nelson, we need as many opportunities to develop them as possible.

      Very much agreed.

      Why risk bringing him back too soon risking re-injury or worse. Give him an extra week. We need Cobb for Seattle. If we can’t beat the Bears with Aaron freaking Rodgers, Mathews, Peppers, Lacy, and Co. Then they should just hang out on the sideline during the Seahawks game and not worry about Seattle.

      No offense Clay.
