Packers WR Randall Cobb (ankle) could miss start of training camp, per report

Even with training camp a month away, the Green Bay Packers might have one less starting wideout available when players report. According to the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel’s Michael Cohen, Randall Cobb has an injury to his right ankle that could delay the start of his camp debut, though the team has “no concern” about his availability for the season opener against the Chicago Bears.

The exact nature of Cobb’s injury remains unclear. The veteran receiver participated in the last public OTA practice earlier this month and only missed sessions for non-injury reasons. Still, Cobb apparently tweaked something behind closed doors, and it could affect how the remainder of his offseason unfolds.

Until Cobb returns to the fold, Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison become the most experienced available members of the Packers’ receiving corps. That leaves opportunities for the trio of wideouts drafted in April (J’Mon Moore, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, and Equanimeous St. Brown) as well as a cavalcade of mostly untested players.

Cobb turns 28 in August. He enters the final season of the four-year deal he signed in 2015.
