Packers WR Randall Cobb may be out for the season

Aaron Rodgers pushed the Packers to bring back Randall Cobb during the offseason, in the days after he ended his holdout. As Rodgers nurses a fractured toe, Cobb underwent surgery to address a more significant injury during the team’s bye week.

Cobb left the Packers’ win over the Rams on Nov. 28 at halftime with a core muscle injury. During the team’s break, the veteran receiver opted for surgery to deal with the injury. That could cost him “several games,” and potentially the rest of the season.

According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Cobb had surgery last week “and the hope is that he can return in time for the playoffs.”

“Cobby’s going to out for a while; he had a pretty significant injury,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Thursday, per ESPN. “That’s unfortunate because I thought he has done such an amazing job when given the opportunity. We were talking about just his targets on third down alone.”

Cobb ranks second among the team’s receivers with 28 receptions and 375 yards and is tied with superstar Davante Adams with five receiving touchdowns.
