Packers WR Randall Cobb will be "out a while" with a "pretty significant" core injury, HC Matt LaFleur said Thursday. Davante Adams, Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard will be locked in as Green Bay's top 3 WRs with Cobb out.
Packers WR Randall Cobb (illness) is "likely" to play vs. the Bucs today, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. But WR Christian Watson (hamstring) is not expected to play. With WR Sammy Watkins (hamstring) on IR, Green Bay will roll out Allen Lazard, Cobb, Romeo Doubs and Juwann Winfree as its top 4 WRs. Look for another RB-centric game plan from the Packers today.
Packers HC Matt LaFleur said Wednesday that he "would anticipate" WR Randall Cobb playing in Saturday's Divisional Round game vs. the 49ers. Cobb has been sidelined since undergoing core-muscle surgery after Week 12. His return would be especially important if WR Marquez Valdes-Scantling (back) is out.
Packers WR Randall Cobb had core-muscle surgery last week, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. Cobb is expected to miss "several games," per Demovsky, "putting the rest of his season in jeopardy." It sounds like Cobb is hoping to be back for the playoffs. He can be dropped in all redraft leagues.
Packers WR Randall Cobb suffered a groin injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game vs. the Rams and won't return. He was having a big one before exiting, catching 4 balls for 95 yards and a score. Cobb's absence leaves Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard as Green Bay's 2nd and 3rd WRs.
ESPN's Kevin Seifert expects Randall Cobb to beat out Amari Rodgers for the Packers' starting slot receiver job this season. "Aaron Rodgers' long and clear history of favoring veteran receivers should be the guiding light of this discussion," Seifert writes, noting that no Packers rookie WR has topped 68 targets in a season with Rodgers. Cobb, of course, spent his first 8 NFL seasons with Rodgers. And he remained reasonably effective with the Texans last year. He has a real shot to finish 2nd on the 2021 Packers in targets and is worth considering late in PPR drafts.
