It has not been a good first half for the Green Bay Packers who are now down two ‘starting’ wide receivers after both James Jones and Randall Cobb had to leave the game.

Early in the first quarter, James was forced from the game with what the team says is a ‘left leg’ injury and while he was originally deemed questionable to return, the Packers eventually updated his status to out. That lead to more work for Randall Cobb, who just moments before halftime took a helmet to his knee and was down in considerable pain before being assisted off the field.

Cobb, who was attempting to help the Packers reach the end zone prior to halftime beat the soft coverage upfront and broke into the middle of the field where an awaiting Baltimore Ravens safety went for the tackle after Cobb had secured the catch. Doing his best to avoid the tackle, Cobb tried to maneuver his way out of the tackle but he was unable to, resulting in the helmet to knee contact.

The speedy Packers wide receiver stayed on the field a few moments as he grabbed his knee and rolled around in pain before being assisted off.

We’re awaiting further word on any potential injury.
