Packers WR Randall Cobb (shoulder) avoided serious injury

ESPN - [Full Article]

Packers WR Randall Cobb was injured on the team's third play from scrimmage against the Eagles. He appeared to land on his right side while attempting to catch a pass from quarterback Brett Hundley along the sideline. He was initially examined in the bench area by team physician Dr. Pat McKenzie. Shortly thereafter, he was taken to the Lambeau Field locker room for further examination.

Cobb initially feared he broke his collarbone, but tests showed that was not the case.

"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."

Fantasy Impact: 

Cobb isn't sure if he'll be ready Week 1, but it appears that he avoided a long-term injury like a broken collarbone. For those drafting today, he's still a 2nd round pick in 12-team PPR leagues, but we'd draft him after the top seven receivers are off the board.
