Randall Cobb placed on IR with designation for return

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb suffered a broken leg in Week 6 when Baltimore Ravens rookie safety Matt Elam hit the receiver low and now the team has decided to place Cobb on injured reserve with designation for return, which means Cobb will miss at least eight weeks of game action.

Of course, Cobb could return to practice as early as six weeks from now, but he would not be able to play until Week 15.

From Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:

It is a huge loss for the Packers receiving corp, so they will desperately need someone to step up. In the meantime, Jarrett Boykin will serve as the team’s No. 3 receiver.

Cobb was leading the team in receptions at the time of his injury and was on track for an  incredible season, but now he will need to focus on his recovery.
