The Green Bay Packers lost wide receiver Randall Cobb to a leg injury in the first half against the Baltimore Ravens today, a game they were able to ultimately win by a 19-17 score, but the offense was clearly not as explosive without Cobb.
He was injured when he was struck in the right leg on a tackle by rookie safety Matt Elam and was carried off the field by two trainers as he was putting no weight on the injured leg.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers was very displeased with the low-hit that Elam put on Cobb:

Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy later said there was no update on the extent of the injury, and there likely wouldn’t be one until tomorrow. That would give the trainers and doctors more time to examine the injury, as well as give Cobb an MRI, but there’s hopefully no ligament damage that could sideline Cobb for an extended period.
