Randall Cobb could miss multiple weeks of action

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (CBSsports.com) Despite triumphing against the Ravens on Sunday, the Packers receiving corps was hit hard by injuries with James Jones and Randall Cobb having to leave the game with hurt knees.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Jones could be ready to play by next week vs. the Browns, but he also said Cobb, the team's leading receiver, will be out “multiple” weeks.

According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, though, the news is worse for Cobb. The newspaper reports that Cobb suffered a fractured fibula and will miss 6-8 weeks.

The problem for Green Bay is that, at this moment, it only has two healthy receivers on the roster -- Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin. But the Packers might be looking out west for some help with Denver practice squad receiver Tavarres King.
