The Green Bay Packers are in a slump after losing their last two games.
Worst yet, they only scored ten points in their setback against the New York Jets.
Having reigning Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers alone isn’t enough to give the Packers a better record than their current 3-3 slate.
The bad news doesn’t stop there because they lost wide receiver Randall Cobb to injury during their loss to the Jets.
Initially, it looked like the veteran wideout will have a premature end to his 2022 season.
However, as NFL Network national insider Ian Rapoport shared, the Packers received some positive news about his status.
#Packers WR Randall Cobb received some good news on his ankle, going from initially believing he was out with a fracture to now learning that it’s a sprain that knocks him out just 2-4 weeks, sources say. He expressed his excitement on IG. pic.twitter.com/9qQ3WPLNMm

Rapoport tweeted, “#Packers WR Randall Cobb received some good news on his ankle, going from initially believing he was out with a fracture to now learning that it’s a sprain that knocks him out just 2-4 weeks, sources say. He expressed his excitement on IG.”
It includes a picture showing him standing up while on crutches with the caption, “When I found out I’ll be back soon.”
Therefore, the former Kentucky standout can still help the team clinch a postseason spot if they are still in contention when he returns.
It remains to be seen if Green Bay will put Cobb on injured reserve, making him inactive for at least four games.
Unfortunately, the Packers have more problems than Cobb’s injury. because they are 24th in points, averaging 17.8 per game.
Packers Missing Davante Adams?
Rodgers has done a great job distributing the ball to his targets.
However, none of his receivers has reached 300 yards, with Allen Lazard on top with 285.
Having Adams on board will make it easier to drive the ball down the field.
But the Packers traded him to the Las Vegas Raiders and Sammy Watkins made their fans miss Adams even more.
