The Green Bay Packers won’t have receiver Randall Cobb for at least the next month, as what was reported earlier as a two-week injury is now being a called a six-eight week injury as the result of a broken fibula:

 

 

And from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

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.

The third-year wide receiver left Sunday’s game in the first half after absorbing a low tackle from Baltimore’s Matt Elam. He later returned on crutches. The source indicated that Cobb nearly broke the fibula entirely on the play.

 

After the game, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers made a point to bring up Elam’s hit, calling it a “questionable play.”

“I just felt like he had enough time to make a hit in the legal hitting zone.

I just felt like from my vantage point he had plenty of time to not take out a guy’s legs in that situation,” Rodgers said. “I think he could have hit him in the proper hitting zone and that’s what I told him.”
