Green Bay Packers Wide Receiver Randall Cobb returned to practice today after hurting his neck following a 13-yard catch on Sunday night against the Giants.
“I laid there for a second. Then I turned over and, like, I had 15 faces in front of me. So I thought I had died or something,” Cobb said to Packers News on Monday. “They kind of scared me more than anything. Yeah, I took a shot, and it hurt, but whenever I saw everybody standing around me, I thought I had died. And then I felt, I saw I could move my fingers and my feet. So I knew it was all right.”
This hit was legal, but I definitely don’t think it was necessary. You could tell when Cobb turned upfield that he was already on his way down. It looked as if Landon Collins already committed to turning his back on the play and making the tackle with his shoulder(which I absolutely hate). Collins could have just stood him up, or at least seen he was already on his way down and jumped on him. Instead, he jammed his neck and could’ve significantly injured him.
Whether or not the intent was there, the good news is he’s okay and should be ready to go when Dallas comes into town.

Also, Eddie Lacy got a limited practice in, along with Demarious Randall and TJ Lang. With Sam Shields’ Instagram implying he’s ready to play, Green Bay may be locked and loaded come Sunday afternoon.
