Randall Cobb Still Packers’ Returner

Packers wrestle with yanking Randall Cobb off special teams

Thats been the question since the Packers cut Ross after he fumbled a kickoff against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3. The Packers will have to decide whether to use receiver Randall Cobb on returns. Cobb, who has three special-teams touchdowns the past two seasons combined, has not been the primary return man since late last season, when Ross took over. The return game is something that really will take the week to work through, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said this week. We have some candidates. Whether Randall will do it or wont do it, well let the week play that out. Its a focus. Its been a focus since we made the change. For what its worth, Cobb was listed as the No. 1 kick returner and punt returner on the teams latest depth chart released on Tuesday.

Sitton, who is 5-0 already, went undefeated in camp last year. Barclay has gone 14-1 in the drill. Defensive tackle Jordan Miller has the most reps (10) without a victory. Medical report: With 14 players already sidelined to start the day, the Packers lost defensive tackle Johnny Jolly to an ankle injury midway through practice. Cornerback James Nixon (knee) and tackle Kevin Hughes (headaches) both returned on Wednesday.

Randall Cobb leaves Packers practice with shoulder injury

Randall Cobb suffered a shoulder injury Tuesday in practice.

Three games into the season, He leads the Packers with 21 catches (sixth in NFL), 290 receiving yards (sixth) and he is tied forsecond on the team with two receiving touchdowns. At this pace, Cobb will catch 112 passes for 1,547 yards and 11 touchdowns this season if he can stay healthy. Besides Cobb, legitimate candidates to replace Ross includes a trio of rookies:running back Johnathan Franklin, cornerback Micah Hyde and even safety Chris Banjo. Because of the massive pile-up of injuries though, Cobb should be the Packers kick returner until the team gets healthy. In the offensive backfield, running backs Eddie Lacy (concussion) and John Kuhn (hamstring) arent quite 100 percent. The defensive secondary is in even worse shape, as they have been hampered by injuries to cornerbacks Casey Hayward (hamstring) and Jarrett Bush (hamstring), along with safety Morgan Burnett (hamstring). The injuries in these position groups is one of two reasons why Cobb should be returning kicks for the Packers instead of Hyde, Franklin or Banjoonce the team returns to action in less than a couple of weeks. Once the offensive backfield heals up and at least two-thirds of the injured defensive backs return to the field in October, then it would be a good time to think about takingCobb out of kick-returning duties. Cobb is simply the most talented and dangerous weapon the Packers possess.

Randall Cobb Should Returns Kicks for Green Bay Packers — For Now

For wide receivers in particular, it can take a couple of seasons to adjust to NFL defenses and find the soft spots in zones. For this exercise, I didn’t include rookies or wideouts who are already household names such as Dez Bryant or Demaryius Thomas .

Randall Cobb is Probably Back on Returns

It’s about opportunities.” In the wake of the ankle injury, the Packers teased switching out Cobb for first-year returner Jeremy Ross, who showed good instincts and explosiveness in relief during the final 5 quarters of the regular season. During the Packers’ 45-31 NFC Randall Cobb Youth Jersey divisional playoff loss to San Francisco, however, Ross muffed a critical punt that led to a 49ers touchdown, resulting in Cobb’s reinsertion. The Packers have several players on their off-season roster with return experience, including Ross, but Cobb’s impact on special teams has gone a long way toward improving a unit McCarthy often credited as the team’s most consistent phase of the game throughout 2012. “If I’m able to do it and they want me to do it, perfect. If not, perfect,” Cobb said. “We have one goal and that’s to bring the title back home. Whatever it’s going to take to bring us there, if that’s me returning, if that’s me not returning, that’s something we’ll figure out over the next few weeks going into training camp and early on in the season.” Even without Jennings, the Packers’ array of offensive weapons remains one of the league’s most formidable with Cobb, Nelson, tight end Jermichael Finley and Jones, who led the league with 14 touchdown receptions last season.

Randall Cobb can’t make most of targets by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer (9/22/13) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb led the team with 11 targets Week 3 at Cincinnati but couldn’t do much with them on a day quarterback Aaron Rodgers was uncharacteristically off target, catching five passes for 54 yards. The modest performance ended a streak of two straight games with at least 100 receiving yards. It also ended a streak of two straight games with a touchdown. Clearly, though, Rodgers wasn’t himself on a day he was under heavy pressure from the Bengals defense, throwing multiple interceptions for the first time in 42 games. Cobb, along with Rodgers, will get a bye to regroup in Week 4 before looking to bounce back Week 5 against the Lions. Randall Cobb a must-start against Bengals by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer (9/19/13) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb has 34 Fantsay points on the season, but has done so in a reliably consistent manner: -16 points in Week 1 and 18 in Week 2. -seven receptions in Week 1, nine in Week 2. -108 receiving yards in Week 1, 128 yards in Week 2 -a touchdown in both games. There’s not much going on in Week 3 to dissuade a Cobb owner from starting him. The Bengals have been decent against opposition wideouts, allowing 23 Fantasy points per game (15th most in the league), but they haven’t faced a team with the varied pass-catching weapons that Green Bay boasts. If you own Randall Cobb, you’re starting him. And it would be a bit of a disappointment if he finished the day with single-digit Fantasy points. Randall Cobb tops 100 and scores again by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com (9/15/13) Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb took a relatively short pass from quarterback Aaron Rodgers 35 yards through the defense to the house Sunday during the Week 2 38-20 win over Washington.

Randall Cobb

(USATSI) Randall Cobb is going to have a monster year for the Packers — if you don’t believe me, just ask Aaron Rodgers , who expects 100+ catches for the wideout — but he’s obviously got to stay healthy first. We were reminded of that Tuesday when he left practice with an apparent shoulder injury. Multiple beat writers present at the Packers practice noted that Cobb “dropped out” of practice and the wideout was later seen with a bag of ice on his shoulder: Here is Cobb with the ice… pic.twitter.com/5AXgPH3n0R Tyler Dunne (@TyDunne) August 6, 2013 It looks pretty precautionary and Dunne noted shortly afterwards that Cobb participated in sprints “during [the] final TV timeout.” Tom Silverstein (also of the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel) noted that Cobb ” won’t practice anymore ” despite running the sprints.
