While Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb didn’t rule out returning, he isn’t certain his leg injury will allow him to play this season.
During his first interview with reporters since suffering the injury against Baltimore on Oct. 13, Cobb on Wednesday said a mid-December return is a best-case scenario.
“I can’t make that call right now,” Cobb said when asked if he is certain he will play again this season. “Right now, today, I cannot play. I’m doing everything I can. I’m working my butt off in the rehab process. This is something that it needs time. It’s getting better. There’s still no timeline on when I can come back.”
Cobb also disputed the report that he broke his fibula, but declined to shed more light on his injury. It doesn't sound as if he'll be useful for fantasy owners in 2013. Consider Week 16 a best-case scenario for Cobb, so he's probably not worth stashing in most leagues.
