Foot Surgery Explains Jared Cook’s Absence

We noted that tight end Jared Cook joined the Green Bay Packers injury parade this week and now we know why.

Cook, the Packers’ big offseason free agent acquisition, had foot surgery. He’ll miss the rest of the offseason program, but the Packers are hoping he’ll be ready for training camp.

According to ESPN, the surgery or the injury shouldn’t be a huge cause of concern.

The surgery was described as “preventative” and something that both Cook and the team wanted to take care of now so that it didn’t linger into the regular season.

Up until this point, there have been nothing but raves for Cook.

He’s the kind of big, athletic receiver coach Mike McCarthy wants to stretch the middle of the field. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has noted Cook’s speed, something last year’s No. 1 tight end, Richard Rodgers, doesn’t possess.

We’ll have to hope this doesn’t hinder Cook’s developing chemistry with Rodgers. However, at least we know he won’t be dealing with a nagging foot injury all season.
