Packers' Randall Cobb ruled out against Lions

Green Bay Packers: 5 players in the spotlight vs the Detroit Lions Green Bay Packers: 3 Big takeaways from loss vs. Lions in Week 5
Frederick Owens | 08 October, 2018, 15:42

When the Packers return to Detroit on Sunday, Rodgers could be without his top three receivers.

Rodgers connected with Davante Adams on a 12-yard throw for a third TD pass, but Crosby hit the left upright on the extra point to let the Lions keep an 11-point lead midway through the fourth quarter.

Wake sat out practice this week and didn't travel with the team Saturday. After hurting his left knee in the opener, Rodgers practiced only on Saturdays in Weeks 2 and 3 but did not miss a game.

In addition to the rookie receivers, head coach Mike McCarthy will nearly certainly have to be creative when it comes to play calling if Rodgers doesn't have Adams, Cobb or Geronimo to throw to. "It's magnificent to see a guy like that who's one of the best in the league to fight through that injury and not having to be able to practice all week and to go out and play like he did, that's incredible to see".

Of the three rookies, Moore entered training camp as the front-runner to be the team's No. 4 receiver. The jump from college game plans to the more complex playbooks of the National Football League is a large one.

Fall hasn't officially arrived until we find ourselves gathering around to discuss how atrocious it is that Mike McCarthy is wasting the prime years of Aaron Rodgers career.

"I always prepare like I'm going to be the No. 1 receiver", Valdes-Scantling said. None of this means Rodgers is falling off that dreaded quarterback cliff yet, but it's fair to say that the fact he's never been properly surrounded by talent is starting to show. "I don't think guys ever got down and thought we were in big, big trouble at that time".

Brett Kavanaugh: Senate set for final vote on Supreme Court nominee
Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., who has repeatedly battled with Trump and will retire in January, wavered but also backed Kavanaugh. That vote occurred amid smoldering resentment by partisans on both sides, on and off the Senate floor.


Cobb acknowledged the progress the trio has made but explained that playing in a regular season game is a big jump from practice.

Cobb said earlier in the week his hamstring had been "feeling better".

"Mentally, as a defense, I think we stuck in there", Williams said. If you have solid options on your bench, I'd prefer to go there, but Valdes-Scantling is a fine flex streaming option this week.

Detroit had success on defence, going after Rodgers with just four players and dropping seven into coverage.

The Lions pass defense now ranks second in the league in yards allowed per game.

There is some concern over the matchup, as the Lions have allowed just 29 receptions for 420 yards and three scores to opposing wideouts.
