Report: Randall Cobb to miss 6-8 weeks with fractured fibula

This offseason, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers talked about the possibility of Randall Cobb becoming the franchise's first receiver to go over 100 catches since the 1990's.

Only two players in Packers history have ever reached the 100-reception mark: Sterling Sharpe (1992 and 1993) and Robert Brooks (1995).

There appears to be no chance that will happen now.

Through five games, Cobb has 29 receptions for 378 yards and two touchdowns to go along with four rushes for 78 yards, but it could be a half-season before we see him on the field again.

Per Ty Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Cobb will miss the next 6-8 weeks with a fractured fibula.

In addition to Cobb, James Jones left Sunday's game early, but as Dunne notes, he has a chance to play in Week 7.

With Cobb and Jones leaving Sunday's game early, the Packers had only two active receivers at the end of the game: Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin.
