Former University of Kentucky wide receiver, Randall Cobb, has been placed on the designated-for-return list for the Green Bay Packers. Cobb suffered a leg injury during the Packer’s game against Baltimore on Sunday.
Cats in the Pros: The designated-for-return rule allows NFL teams to put one player per season on the list to allow them to return later in the season. This went into effect last season. Cobb can start practicing again in six weeks but must remain on the list for eight weeks before he can return the field for games.
Cobb is Green Bay’s leading receiver and has 29 receptions, 378 yards and two touchdowns for the season. The Packers who have a 3-2 record will look to improve that against the Browns but will have difficulty after Cobb’s injury.
Denver Bronco and former UK linebacker, Welsey Woodyard, returned to practice on Wednesday. Woodyard sat out of the Broncos game against Jacksonville after a neck injury.
Although listed as limited in the Broncos first injury report for the week, Woodyard is expected to play Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts.
Woodyard has 35 tackles and 1.5 sacks on the season.
