Cobbs (knee) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Brett Martel of the Associated Press reports.
Cobbs was signed by the Saints in mid-December but was never active for a game, and had recently been dealing with the knee issue. The team signed tight end Garrett Griffin to replace him on the 53-man roster.
Cobbs (knee) is ruled out for Sunday's divisional-round playoff game against the Eagles, Nick Underhill of The New Orleans Advocate reports.
Cobbs has not been active for the Saints since joining the team in mid-December, and is now nursing a knee injury of undisclosed severity. New Orleans' offense won't be impacted by the undrafted rookie's absence.
Cobbs was originally signed as an undrafted free agent by the Redskins in April and found a spot on their practice squad in September. The rookie caught 72 passes for 841 yards last season as a junior at Indiana. Cobbs also caught seven passes for 109 yards and a touchdown over the preseason.
Cobbs has a spot on Washington's practice squad, Les Carpenter of The Washington Post reports.
The undrafted rookie out of Indiana caught seven passes for 109 yards and a touchdown during the preseason, coming up just a bit short in a roster battle with Trey Quinn and Cam Sims. The Redskins will let Cobbs develop on their practice squad, with potential for a midseason call-up if the team struggles to stay healthy at wide receiver.
