Packers injuries: Cobb out multiple weeks, Jones could play vs. Browns
Injuries continue to plague the Packers, with Randall Cobb out multiple weeks, according to Mike McCarthy. However, wideout James Jones could play Sunday vs. the Browns.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Jones could be ready to play by next week vs. the Browns, but he also said Cobb, the team’s leading receiver, will be out “multiple” weeks.
According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, though, the news is worse for Cobb. The newspaper reports that Cobb suffered a fractured fibula and will miss 6-8 weeks.
The problem for Green Bay is that, at this moment, it only has two healthy receivers on the roster -- Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin. But the Packers might be looking out west for some help with Denver practice squad receiver Tavarres King.
I just asked Tavarres King if he was going to Green Bay. "How do you know that?" Then he ducked into the bathroom. So, we'll see.— Lindsay Jones (@bylindsayhjones) October 14, 2013
Jones also reported that King, a fifth-round draft pick out of Georgia, was seen cleaning out his locker. If the Packers did sign King off Denver’s practice squad, he’d immediately land on Green Bay’s active roster.
Either way, the Packers aren’t a healthy bunch right now. ESPN reported that Jones suffered a PCL sprain, but if he can return by Sunday, that certainly would help.
