Packers Injury Update: Latest from McCarthy on Randall Cobb, James Jones, Nick Perry

The Packers' head coach discussed the team's injuries with reporters on Monday, and there's reason to feel like the team dodged several bullets.

The Green Bay Packers' head coach, Mike McCarthy, met with reporters on Monday afternoon to recap a game that saw three key players for his team go down with injuries. McCarthy was painfully vague with his injury updates, however, only giving a general idea of the availability of each player for the upcoming game against the Cleveland Browns on Sunday.

Randall Cobb
Bad news: McCarthy said that Cobb will be out multiple weeks.
Good news: Adam Schefter seems to think that he'll be out a shorter period, rather than a longer one:'s Ian Rapoport isn't quite as optimistic about Cobb, as his sources are giving him a different timeline:

James Jones
Confirming what Adam Schefter reported earlier, McCarthy said that Jones may be able to play this week.

Nick Perry
McCarthy would not confirm the reports that Perry broke his foot. He only said that Perry does have a foot injury and that he "does not have a chance to play" on Sunday against the Browns. That's certainly better than ruling him out for multiple weeks, which would likely be the case if it were more of a serious injury.

All in all, this has to be thought of as the Packers dodging a series of bullets. Cobb's injury looked awful, and when Jones went down a hamstring injury seemed logical. Plus, when news of Perry's foot injury came out today, that sounded like a 4-6 week injury at minimum. Let's hope all three are back on the field in the next two to three weeks.
