Randall Cobb suffered AC joint sprain during Packers' loss to Eagles

Whew.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

The Green Bay Packers got some slightly good news Sunday regarding Randall Cobb's shoulder injury.

After Cobb was forced from Saturday's preseason game vs the Philadelphia Eagles, the Packers were holding their breaths as Cobb underwent tests on his injured shoulder that forced him from the game. It looked like Cobb may have separated his shoulder, which could be a multiple-month injury depending on the severity.

As it turns out, it was just a sprain of the ACC joint that shouldn't keep him out too long.

This comes six days after receiver Jordy Nelson was lost for the season with a torn ACL in a preseason game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Green Bay heads to Chicago for a Week 1 clash with the Bears to open the regular season.

Hopefully, we'll see Cobb on the field, but at least we can feel good about seeing him soon after if he is held out.
