A right biceps injury has hampered Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb for the better part of training camp. While he's continued to suit up for practices, he told Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel that he is playing through pain.
"I have some pain," Cobb said. "I'm dealing
with that. The hardest part for me is that I'm a tough guy. I don't like
missing practice. I'm trying to be smart and tough and that's a little bit
difficult for me. I understand I have some limitations and have to be smart
about it, but it's difficult."
Cobb believes he sustained the injury over a week ago during an intrasquad scrimmage. Recently, it's become evident that the dynamic wide out is dealing with pain as a result of the ailing biceps. If the discomfort continues, Cobb could take time off, though he indicated that he doesn't want to miss practice.
While Cobb would prefer not to sit out, the Packers are likely to proceed cautiously with his practice reps considering it's still the preseason. Cobb is expected to once again be an integral part of Green Bay's offense, as quarterback Aaron Rodgers has said he envisions over 100 receptions for the young receiver.
To this point, Cobb has said he's not satisfied with his performance in camp. While that is admirable, the young player will likely be sidelined by his team if they think he's putting himself at risk for the start of the regular season.
