On Thursday, December 9th, 2021 the Green Bay Packers have announced that their veteran superstar wide receiver, Randall Cobb, may have to miss the remainder of the 2021 – 2022 NFL season due to core muscle surgery. Cobb ended up having the surgical procedure last week. Randall’s 2021 – 2022 season of the National Football League is now in jeopardy, just the way Aaron Rodgers likes it.
Prior to this season Aaron Rodgers demanded that the Green Bay Packers signed Cobb, and he has been a major reason for their success this year. The Green Bay Packers are hoping that Cobb can return to football activities by the time they reach the NFL postseason this season, but only time will tell.
Cobb was currently in the middle of his best game of this season, with 4 – catches for 95 – receiving yards, and 1 – touchdown in the 1st – half when Randall had to drop out of the match up with what at that time was considered to be a groin injury.
At that time Cobb ranked 3rd on the Green Bay Packers with 28 – catches as well as 2nd – place on the team in receiving yards with 375 – yards, and he is tied for the touchdown lead, mirroring Davante Adams’ with 5 – touchdowns. 12 of Randall’s completions have come on 3rd – down, and 10 of those have been for 1st – downs.
The Green Bay Packers are well on their way to the NFL postseason this year, but this injury to Cobb presents them with a major road – block. Hopefully for them their overrated and highly – talented quarterback Rodgers can bail them out of this situation, but I wouldn’t bet on that! The Green Bay Packers (9 – 3) play the Chicago Bears (4 – 8) on Sunday Night Football this weekend, and they are looking to stay in hunt for the best record of the NFC as they are presently only 1 – game behind the Arizona Cardinals (10 – 2).

“Cobby’s going to out for a while; he had a pretty significant injury,” the Green Bay Packers head coach Matt LaFleur stated last Thursday. “That’s unfortunate because I thought he has done such an amazing job when given the opportunity. We were talking about just his targets on third down alone.”
