Packers WR Randall Cobb Hurting With Biceps Injury
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was in obvious pain at the end of practice. The team's top pass-catcher, Cobb stayed on the field anyway.
Only afterward did he admit he should have been smarter with the biceps injury that's been bothering him since an Aug. 3 scrimmage. By the end of Tuesday's practice, Cobb was wincing, holding his right arm close to his body and clearly in pain during an 11-on-11 competitive team period.
''Yeah, I have some pain in it. So (I'm) just dealing with that,'' Cobb said. ''The hardest part for me is, I'm a tough guy, I want to be on the field. I don't like missing practice. I hate missing practice. So trying to be smart and be tough at the same time is difficult for me, but I understand that I have limitations and I have to be smart about it. But it's hard and difficult at times.''
Asked if he was smart Tuesday, Cobb replied simply, ''No.''
The Packers can't afford to lose Cobb, who led the team in receiving last year (80 receptions, 954 yards, eight touchdowns), not only is wide receiver Jordy Nelson sidelined for the rest of camp after having a nerve procedure done on his knee, but Cobb and his versatility are vital to the Packers' offense.
