WR wonders if microphone didn't lead to bizarre injury
Randall Cobb can't say for certain, but the Green Bay Packers wide receiver can't help but wonder if being mic'd up for the team's NFC divisional playoff loss to the Arizona Cardinals contributed to the lung injury he suffered during the first quarter.
"I didn't break a rib, I didn't fracture a rib, which is really abnormal, to puncture a lung without that. But I was mic'd up for the game, and the battery for the mic was on my shoulder pads. I landed flush on my back during the catch, and I punctured my lung. I'm not saying it was (because of being mic'd up). There's no way to prove that. But it's kind of crazy that I punctured a lung without breaking a rib," Cobb said.(ESPN)
FF Today's Take:Cobb, who was initially diagnosed with a bruised lung, asked to go back in the game before the Packers' training staff chose to monitor him in the locker room; they eventually took him to the hospital before halftime. He stayed in the hospital overnight and was released the next day. The 25-year-old Cobb is expected to participate fully in offseason workouts and makes for an interesting buy-low target coming off a disappointing 79-catch season in which he managed 829 yards and six touchdowns.
