You wouldn’t know it by his performance, but Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb says his injured shoulder is still not 100 percent.
Cobb suffered a sprained AC joint in the Packers’ third preseason game. He sat out the final one and then played in week 1, where both his routes and snaps were somewhat limited. Cobb caught five balls for 38 yards and a TD against the Bears.
In week 2, he exploded for eight catches and 116 yards.
Everything looks like it’s progressing just fine, but Cobb says his shoulder still isn’t back to normal.
“I wouldn’t say that,” said Cobb when asked if his shoulder felt back to normal. “It’s something I’m dealing with – I’m not going to get into (the details). But it’s not where I want it to be.”
Fortunately for the Packers, the injury hasn’t really cost them on the field.
Cobb remains the focal point of the Packers’ passing game, as Davante Adams hasn’t really blown the doors off like everyone expected just yet. Meanwhile, James Jones pretty much only catches touchdowns. Rookie Ty Montgomery is slowly being worked in and Jeff Janis just plays special teams.
While it’s bad news that the injury isn’t fully healed, the good news is it isn’t getting any worse. The Packers need Randy on the field.
