Injury: Cobb was spotted wearing a walking boot on his right leg earlier this off-season.  As of July 18th, while he was hosting his youth football camp there was no sign of Cobb continuing to use the boot and he participated in some drills per Michael Cohen of the Athletic.  Cobb indicated he was dealing with an ankle injury, which required surgery during the off-season to removed damaged cartilage from his right ankle.  Cobb has participated off and on throughout training camp at this point in time.

 

What if he takes a helmet to his right ankle?

Following this procedure, Cobb’s ankle should be structurally good to go.  A blow to the ankle could cause additional soreness and potential additional injury unrelated to the initial cartilage damage.

2018 Health Outlook:  Cobb’s outlook for 2018 is bright.  There is a relatively low concern level moving forward with regards to his right ankle.  Cobb has had some trouble with his ankle during training camp as he has missed a handful of practice thus far, he also sat out the pre-season opener for the Packers.  

 

Risk of Re-Injury:  35% chance of re-injury.

 

Recommendations:  Cobb will be a safe pick in your fantasy football draft this season.  He has been a reliable target for Aaron Rodgers in Green Bay for years and should be just that again this season.  Take a quick look at how Cobb looks in training camp, as he should be good to go without any restrictions.  Draft Cobb with confidence to serve as a WR2 for your fantasy squat this season.

Update: Randall Cobb dealing with ankle soreness in the same ankle that he had surgery on 7 weeks ago for removal of some cartilage. This can be normal at this time given the increased demands put on during training camp. However, if this persists or the next 6 weeks, then you start worrying about long-term health of the ankle. Look for a slow start up for him through the month of September. Should be fine by October barring any other issues with the ankle-Dr. Parekh
