Randall Cobb is the Latest Injury the Packers Have Mishandled

The last time receiver Randall Cobb caught a pass for the Green Bay Packers was in week 14 against Seattle.

Cobb missed last week’s game with Minnesota with an injured ankle. He played the week prior against Chicago, but wasn’t targeted a single time, despite playing 51 snaps.

If you were to surmise that Cobb hurt his ankle against Chicago, you’d be wrong. He hurt himself against Seattle.

So whether it’s his own fault for wanting to be out there or the Green Bay Packers’ for sending him out there when he wasn’t healthy — something they’ve done a number of times, this season — Cobb’s injury progression has actually gone the opposite way it should have.

Usually it’s: get injured, don’t practice, miss game, limited practice, maybe miss game, full practice, play game.

Well, obviously with Cobb it was: get injured, play game, limited practice, miss game, no practice, ???

Cobb hasn’t been practicing this week in hopes of playing against Detroit.

That’s right. Rest is now the directive three weeks on.

What word might I be looking for here?

Ah, yes…

BUFFOONERY!

Like we said, Cobb isn’t the first guy the Packers sent out there before he was ready this season. They did it to cornerback Damarious Randall against Dallas. Randall had a previous groin injury and aggravated the injury in that game. He needed surgery after it. How about Eddie Lacy? Suuuuuuuuure, he can run on an injured ankle! Lacy injured his ankle against the Giants and was right back out there the following week against the Cowboys. Surgery, to injured reserve, season over.

What’s truly odd is that the Packers are super cautious with some players and their injuries and apparently a bunch of morons when it comes to other players and their injuries.

Is there a common denominator? It seems like, unless you’ve blown out your knee or you’re Clay Matthews’ girly-ass hamstring, the Packers are just going to send you out there if you have a lower body injury. Now, if you have a concussion or, say, you broke your hand — well, no way in hell are you playing!

    There’s nothing girly-ass about a hamstring injury, so c’mon Mordecai. He’s played through a nasty shoulder injury from a cheap-ass shot and hasn’t complained. So I can’t go dark on 52. You are spot on in how they mishandled Lacy’s injury and Cobb. Stoopid Buffonery indeed!!!!!

      The shoulder injury to Matthews was just great football play — by the Eagles Barbre. There was nothing cheap about it. Blocked from the front and below the shoulder. The fact Matthews left his feet and went flying is because of the combination of a great classic form block and Matthews not being field aware and having lost so much muscle mass and power because he seems to have stopped taking the PEDs. If that was a cheap shot then all of football is a cheap shot.

      This is typical Packer fan hypocrisy. If Bulaga had made that block on Fletcher Cox you would be high-5ing and commending him and outraged that anyone could ever think it was a cheap shot. If you want to see actual cheap shots y the way there are quite a few that Matthews himself has actually really done to others.

    Mordecai is an idiot, this total packers front is total bs. Get a job you’re good at and stick with it! Football is a game for men, enjoyed by men, and obviously you can’t handle the truth!!

    Randall who?

    Randall Cobb fucking sucks, I’m not so sure it matters if he’s hurt or not anymore — the guy fucking sucks and there’s just no other way to say it. He got paid and hasn’t done shit for this team since, he’s been an absolute piece of shit since 2014. He doesn’t produce (when healthy), “apparently” he was hurt all last year now he’s hurt again — still not producing. He’s not fast, he creates ZERO separation, he doesn’t return anymore, he’s the most ineffective “gadget player” in the history of whatever the fuck a gadget player is — so what exactly does this bum do for the organization besides take up cash?

    Fuck him. The guy sucks — I hope the organization releases the piece of shit after the season and brings in someone else to take his job. It shouldn’t be that hard to be a mildly productive slot receiver for the best QB in the NFL — my god Chris Hogan can do what Cobb does (and more) for 1/10th the price.

    Randall Cobb your days in the league are numbered, go take your ass down to Jacksonville where you belong you fucking loser.

    Whoa dude. First off, gadget player? Clearly not a number one but come on. Cobb does get open. Does he always get to touch the ball. And lastly change that fucking name. People may mistake me for you.
