Randall Cobb Could Miss Opener

Randall Cobb

Green Bay Packers rookie receiver [intlink id=”1616″ type=”category”]Randall Cobb[/intlink] could miss the regular season opener after hurting his knees in last Friday’s preseason game.

Cobb has contusions in both knees and is listed as day-to-day. The injuries happened while he was returning a kick against Arizona.

“I got hit in an awkward way and came down a little awkward,” Cobb said.

If Cobb isn’t able to go, the Packers will need to choose a returner to fill in until he’s ready. [intlink id=”1618″ type=”category”]Alex Green[/intlink] appears most likely to be the primary kick returner in Cobb’s absence, but the punt return job isn’t as clear.

The Packers exposed cornerback [intlink id=”82″ type=”category”]Tramon Williams[/intlink] on punt returns last season and we can’t imagine they want to do that again.

    That injury was basically self inflicted. He caught the kick off, ran full speed north, running right INTO defenders..akin to running into a brick wall…stupid hurts…hope he learned from this.
