Randall Cobb: Packers WR has broken right fibula, out six to eight weeks

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is quickly becoming a go-to guy for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. But on Sunday the 23-year-old Kentucky product suffered an injury that will put him out of commission for a while.

Randall Cobb injuryThe Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel is reporting that Cobb has a fractured right fibula and will be out six to eight weeks. After suffering the injury against the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, the initial expectation was that it was something minor and that Cobb would miss one to two weeks.

But Ty Dunne of the Journal-Sentinel is reporting that Cobb nearly broke the fibula entirely and he’s going to miss a significant chunk of time. Dunne’s source claims that it is a serious injury and not something Cobb will bounce back from shortly.

The injury came after absorbing a low tackle from Ravens safety Matt Elam.

Cobb had a breakout season in 2012 and had continued that momentum this year. Through five games in 2013, he had racked up 29 catches for 378 yards and two touchdowns. Sixteen of his receptions have also gone for first downs.

Last season, Cobb snagged 80 receptions for 954 yards and eight scores.

Cobb is an integral part of Green Bay’s offense and it will be interesting to see how the team goes about replacing him. Expect Jordy Nelson and Jermichael Finley to see a lot more targets, while James Jones should see a moderate increase in usage.

The Packers have run the ball well this season (140.8 yards per game), so expect Eddie Lacy to get a bigger load of carries with Cobb sidelined.
