Randall Cobb’s Injury Will Mean The Loss Of A Valuable Player For The Packers
Cobb had multi-touchdowns in his team’s wins over the Cardinals and the Steelers. He has also given Aaron Rodgers, quarterback, with a reliable and familiar target in a slot thus allowing Adams to go for more plays at the outside.
Rodger said that playing in a slot requires flair. After Green Bay’s Week 4 victory over Pittsburgh. He says that Cobb has an ability to get open and that ensures the team gets much flexibility during an offensive.
With Randall Cobb out, the passing game of the Packers will depend on Adams, Scantling, and Lazard, and also the running backs Dillon and Jones.
