We’ll start with Michael Cohen’s look at Randall Cobb's ankle injury:
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is recovering from an ankle injury that may sideline him for the beginning of training camp, according to a source.
Cobb participated in organized team activities throughout the spring and was on the field as recently as June 4, the final practice open to the media before veterans were excused for the team’s mandatory minicamp in mid-June. His only absence during OTAs was for a personal matter.
Three weeks later, though, Cobb is wearing a walking boot on his right ankle. He described the boot as “temporary” when seen at an airport Sunday night but didn’t say whether he underwent surgery. How and when the injury occurred is unclear.
