Randall Cobb is going to have a monster year for the Packers -- if you don't believe me, just ask Aaron Rodgers, who expects 100+ catches for the wideout -- but he's obviously got to stay healthy first. We were reminded of that Tuesday when he left practice with an apparent shoulder injury.

Multiple beat writers present at the Packers practice noted that Cobb "dropped out" of practice and the wideout was later seen with a bag of ice on his shoulder:

It looks pretty precautionary and Dunne noted shortly afterwards that Cobb participated in sprints "during [the] final TV timeout."

Tom Silverstein (also of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) noted that Cobb "won't practice anymore" despite running the sprints.

So ... panic time? Nah. There's every reason to be concerned -- after all the Packers just lost their starting left tackle for the season after Bryan Bulaga went down with an ACL injury. Cobb's injury obviously isn't as concerning, but he might be a more important piece to this offense, which is exactly why it's OK to hold your breath (or take a shot) when you see him walking around with ice on his shoulder. For now, though, keep calm and Aaron Rodgers. Or something.
