Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb suffered a fractured fibula on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens after rookie safety Matt Elam delivered a low hit, but the good news is that Cobb is not expected to miss the remainder of the season.
The only timetable that has confirmed for Cobb is that he will miss “multiple weeks,” but Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reportes that Cobb should be out for six to eight weeks.
It was obviously a big blow to the Packers offense, but at least he should be healthy enough to help the team down the final stretch of the season.
Cobb is the team’s leading receiver with 29 receptions, so someone else will need to step up in his absence.
The best option for Aaron Rodgers will now be Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley, neither of who bring the same dynamic play-making ability as Cobb, but it will have to do until Cobb is healthy enough to make a return to the line up.
