Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy had little to say about the injuries sustained to wide receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones in the aftermath of his team’s win at the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, but the media is providing encouraging reports.
I said on Cobb and Jones packers don’t think either is season ending but won’t know 4 sure til MRIs. Cobb believed worse than Jones

ESPN’s Adam Schefter also said that the early news on Cobb’s knee was “good,” however, that doesn’t mean that he and Jones won’t miss at least some amount of time.
The Packers may have to make some sort of roster move this week to find at least a temporarily fill-in with only two healthy wide receivers on their roster (Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin).
Options include the recently released Jeremy Ross on the Detroit Lions practice squad and Myles White on the Packers’ own squad.
The Packers would have to release a player or put one on injured reserve in order to create room.
