Randall Cobb expected to play Week 1

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

Despite the scare he gave the Packers when he hobbled off the field last Saturday, Randall Cobb is expected to play in the team's first game of the season, according to both Fox Sports and ESPN.

Fox Sports' report quoted a source who said that Cobb "is going to be fine." ESPN also cited a source, reporting that the Packers believe Cobb has a "good chance" to play against the Bears on September 13.

On just the team's third offensive play on Saturday, Cobb landed on his right shoulder after trying to catch a pass. Cobb reportedly suffered a sprained shoulder, according to both NFL Media and ESPN, with Ian Rapoport calling it an AC joint sprain.

Fantasy Impact: 

With Jordy Nelson already out for the season, the news of Cobb's fast recovery should ease the minds of the Packers, as he's expected to fill Nelson's void as Aaron Rodgers' No. 1 target. Last season, Cobb caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns.
