The Green Bay Packers received some good news Sunday morning. Randall Cobb, who left Saturday's game against the Arizona Cardinals with a chest injury, provided an update on his condition via his Twitter account.

Cobb endured a scary moment during Saturday night's game. After making a one-handed grab during the first half, the receiver began coughing up blood on the sideline, forcing his departure from the stadium. The Packers soon after ruled him out for the remainder of the game, and left him in Arizona overnight for further observation. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Cobb suffered a bruised lung, which explains the team's heightened level of concern.

With the offseason now underway in Green Bay, Cobb has plenty of time to recuperate from his injury. He finished the season with 65 receptions for 737 yards and six touchdowns. The receiver signed a four-year, $40 million contract with the team back in March.
