@AdamSchefter: For now, sounds like #Packers WR Randall Cobb is expected to miss 2 weeks.

Packers WR James Jones sprained his PCL vs. Ravens but might be able to play Sunday vs. Clev. Team will make decision later this week.



UPDATE:
Quote:
Wide receiver Randall Cobb suffered a fractured fibula in Green Bay's 19-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens and will miss 6-8 weeks, a source said Monday.


Sad

Nick Perry also broke his foot.

After the bye week where teams get "healthy" the Packers have lost Clay Matthews, Brad Jones, James Jones, Randall Cobb and Nick Perry. This team is so damn frustrating, haven't even listed guys who missed multiple games before the bye week, our 4 guys on PUP or our potential Pro Bowl OT who didn't even make a pre-season game this year before he went on IR.

Your move San Diego...

And no, I'm not kidding. I'll be truly shocked if, with the way the injuries are piling up, the Chargers escape tonight's game without losing another starter for a significant period of time like we've been doing on a weekly basis of late.

Wow, that's great news about Cobb. That looked potentially season ending.

2 Weeks? Yeah right. There is no way; The man needed crutches to walk.
This is more like 2 months if anything. That was a super hyper extension, No way he comes back in 2 weeks.

Big Ben took a giant shot exactly like that against the Chargers some years back. Only missed a few snaps.

I really wouldn't be even a little surprised if Cobb ends up missing 3 or 4 weeks instead of two, but either way this is a huge stroke of luck for a team that needed it badly on the injury front. Our schedule the next few weeks isn't exactly brutal so if he, B Jones, J Jones, Clay, Hayward and (dare I say) Sherrod can come back for the final stretch, we'll be okay.

Being on crutches in the NFL isn't really indicative of much. Teams have players do that so they don't aggravate the injury and let the swelling go down by taking pressure off the leg.

Good for Cobb though, obviously missing time sucks, but that could've been so much worse.

My fantasy team sure is happy that Cobb will only be gone for 2 weeks. Very Happy

Certainly could have been worse. The Packers must be relieved they won't miss out on Cobb for too long.

Yeah and Big Ben played with a swollen ankle the size of a blimp.
I seriously doubt he'll return in 2 weeks. I'll put money on that, But if he does kudous to him and the medical staff. Good to hear that it's not season ending.

Cobb fractured his fibula, 6-8 weeks.

Injuries are ruining another Packer regular season. Lets hope by the time the playoffs are around we'll have enough wins that we can get these guys back for a run.
