Green Bay Packers tight end Jared Cook was placed on the physically unable to perform list to start training camp after having “preventative” surgery in June on his ailing foot.
According to Michael Cohen of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, Cook is still uncertain when he’ll be able to get back to practice with the Packers.
However, the surgery was minor and isn’t expected to hinder his availability for the start of the season.
“No, it wasn’t anything serious,” Cook said. “It was just, they didn’t want it to prolong and something happen later on down the road in season….I’d just rather be safe than sorry.”
Unfortunately, it's valuable time lost as Cook joins a new team and tries to form chemistry with Aaron Rodgers. Cook also missed the end of offseason progRams. If Cook can come back healthy we think he has a great shot at TE1 numbers this season.
