Tight end Jared Cook hasn’t had the big impact on the Green Bay Packers offense we all expected yet. Maybe he will and maybe he won’t, but it looks like he’s going to be slowed by injury at least momentarily.
Cook injured his ankle during the second quarter of the Packers’ win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday. He left the game and didn’t return.
Probably more telling is that he left the locker room wearing a walking boot and using crutches.
The Packers haven’t provided any information on Cook, but it’s probably good that they’re heading into a bye week. The team was already without four starters because of injury on Sunday.
Cook has just six catches for 53 yards on the season, but he at least provides the threat of the big play.
