Found October 13, 2013 on NFL Trade Rumors:
Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network reports that Packers WR Randall Cobb will undergo an MRI on his injured knee Monday. According to Rapoport, early indications are that it “may not be a major injury.” Ian Rapoport also reported that James Jones may have “dodged a bullet” with his injury as well. While this hardly suggests that the Packers and Cobb are completely out of the woods, this is about as good of news as they could expect after what looked like a clear ligament tear in his knee. Knee sprains can still hold a player out for a number of weeks, so it’s likely that the Packers will need to add a wide receiver at some point next week. The Browns signed seventh-round Charles Johnson off the Packers practice squad this week or he would have been an obvious replacement.   The post Report: Early Indications Are That Randall Cobb May Not Have A Major Injury appeared first on NFL Trade Rumors -.
