Green Bay Packers Rumors: If WR Randall Cobb suffers a season ending injury, Aaron Rodgers be able to lead the Packers to the Super Bowl?

The Green Bay Packers season is in jeopardy after Randall Cobb suffered a shoulder injury that knocked him out of Saturday’s game against teh Philadelphia Eagles.

Cobb walked into the locker room in the first quarter and it worried the Packers staff and fans alike because they already lost Jordy Nelson last week. He suffered the injury in the third play from scrimmage. Cobb seemed to land on his right side as he attempted to catch the pass of Brett Hundley in the sideline. He was examined first by team doctor Pat McKenzie in the bench before the wide receiver was moved out to the Lambeau field locker room for further examination on the extent of his injury.

“I just caught the ball and was going down to the ground, and I had a guy land on top of me,” Cobb said. “I was just jogging off the field at the end of the series, and I could feel the pain. I didn’t know exactly what it was. It was discomfort, and I let Doc check it out and we went back and got X-rays. It’s not what we think it could’ve been.”

Cobb is scheduled for additional tests Sunday, but he expressed a feeling of relief after the game.

“It’s been very unfortunate these few weeks for us,” Cobb said. “At least there’s a silver lining in this injury.”

Cobb had 91 receptions for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. He was second to teammate Jordy Nelson with 98 catches for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns.

Without Cobb as part of the offense of the Packers, then Aaron Rodgers is expected to struggle in finding his targets. Losing Nelson has affected the offense already, and without Cobb, it would be impossible to fill in the void.

The Packers announced two other injuries — right tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle) and cornerback Micah Hyde (neck spasms). McCarthy said he did not think either was serious. After Bulaga exited in the first quarter, it left center Corey Linsley as the only healthy starting lineman.
