Packers receiver Randall Cobb goes up for a pass during the first half against the Philadelphia Eagles. Cobb injured his shoulder on the play.

One week after losing Jordy Nelson to a season-ending knee injury, the Green Bay Packers now are holding their breath over another Pro Bowl receiver.

Randall Cobb exited following the third play of Saturday night's preseason game against Philadelphia because of a shoulder injury. NFL Network reported the Packers still are awaiting word on the severity, but a potential broken collarbone is not among the concerns.

Cobb went to the locker room and has yet to return after landing awkwardly on a third-and-10 pass from quarterback Brett Hundley. It's the last thing the Packers wanted to see after losing Pro Bowl receiver Jordy Nelson to a season-ending knee injury sustained against Pittsburgh on Sunday.

The Packers pulled second-year receiver Davante Adams immediately after the series. The 2014 second-round pick is the only other receiver on the Packers' roster who caught more than two passes last season.

Starting right tackle Bryan Bulaga also exited Saturday night's game after getting his left ankle rolled up. The Packers already were playing without starting left tackle David Bakhtiari (knee), and guards Josh Sitton (ankle) and T.J. Lang (concussion).

Third-year lineman JC Tretter subbed in at right guard with Josh Walker sliding out to Bulaga's spot at right tackle.

It all played into a forgettable first quarter for the Packers, who were outscored 25-0 and out-produced offensively 152-96 yards.

Defensive back Micah Hyde also was carted to the locker room in the second quarter because of a neck injury.
