Randall Cobb to go on injured reserve after injury in Ravens game

By Jay Sorgi. CREATED Oct 14, 2013 - UPDATED: Oct 15, 2013

The Green Bay Packers will not have the services of wide receiver Randall Cobb in game action for at least eight weeks.

As reported by Tom Silverstein of the Journal Sentinel:

The Packers confirmed the move Tuesday afternoon, along with the signings of Myles White and Jake Stoneburner and the placement of Greg Van Roten on injured reserve.

Green Bay finally signed linebacker Victor Aiyewa to the team's practice squad.  He's a first-year player from the University of Washington who spent time with Tampa Bay during the 2011 preseason.

The Journal Sentinel's Tyler Dunne reported the specifics of Cobb's injury on Monday:

"Randall does not have a chance (to play) this week.  He will be out multiple weeks," said Mike McCarthy during Monday's news conference.

McCarthy chose not to disclose the nature of Cobb's injury, though it appeared his knee was hurt during the Packers' 19-17 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

There were initial fears that Cobb's injury may be season-ending, but multiple reports seemed to lessen that fear Sunday night.

Cobb addressed those fears:

The news also came on the day where it was discovered James Jones could return to play Sunday despite his own injury suffered against Baltimore, but Nick Perry suffered a broken foot in the same game.
