Green Bay WR Randall Cobb spent three hours in the hospital Saturday
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb spent Saturday night in a Seattle area hospital after it was suspected he had appendicitis, Fox Sports' Jay Glazer reported during Sunday's NFC championship game.
Packers WR Randall Cobb spent three hours in hospital last night, per @JayGlazer. Doctors thought he may have appendicitis.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) January 18, 2015
Cobb did not have his appendix removed, and was released from the hospital. He appeared energetic in warm ups and played during the first half Sunday. The nature of Cobb's exact ailment, or whether he is still in pain, is uncertain.
Cobb isn't the only Green Bay player battling injury. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers has an injured calf, and running back Eddie Lacy had an asthma attack during the team's game last week against Dallas.
The ailments have not visibly hampered Green Bay so far. The Packers lead the Seahawks on the road 16-0 late in the second quarter, with six of those points coming off a Cobb touchdown catch.
