Packers WR Randall Cobb misses practice with new foot injury

·2 min read

Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb missed practice on Wednesday with a foot injury, per Rob Demovsky of ESPN.

Cobb, now in his 12th season, got a veteran day off on Sunday and then only did individual drills on Monday, so it’s possible this injury has been lingering to start the second week of training camp and the Packers are attempting to manage it with time off.

Coach Matt LaFleur made no mention of the injury situation before practice on Wednesday. He may be able to provide more information on Thursday morning.

Without Cobb available, second-year receiver Amari Rodgers – who is listed behind Cobb at slot receiver on the unofficial depth chart – may get more opportunities with the first-team offense.

Given his age, experience and now injury status, Cobb almost certainly won’t play in the preseason opener on Friday in San Francisco.

Injuries are worth monitoring for Cobb, an expected starter who missed five games to a core muscle injury last season and has missed at least five games in three of the last four seasons. He turns 32 years old later this month.

Last year, Cobb caught 28 passes for 375 yards and five touchdowns. He averaged 13.6 yards per catch and 9.6 yards per target.

The Packers are getting a little light at receiver, where rookie Christian Watson (knee) remains on the PUP list and Osirus Mitchell (quad) was waived-injured on Wednesday.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned after a veteran day off on Tuesday. Rookie defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt (possible concussion) and tight end Dominique Dafney (knee) also missed practice with new injuries.
