Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb was a big part of the reason his team took home the win on Sunday versus the New York Giants gathering in 9 catches for over 100 yards.

He also secured a pass late in the fourth quarter that meant the Packers could just kneel down and run out the clock, but the hit he took on that play came with a steep price.

During the tackle the Giants’ Landon Collins hit Cobb in the head and neck area which left Cobb lying on the ground unable to get up for a few moments.

When asked later about the hit his initial reaction to it was a bit scary…

“Got folded up like a lawn chair,” Cobb described it.

Teammates were concerned. The Packers’ medical staff wasn’t far behind.

“I laid there for a second,” Cobb said. “Then I turned over and, like, I had 15 faces in front of me. So I thought I had died or something. They kind of scared me more than anything. Yeah, I took a shot, and it hurt, but whenever I saw everybody standing around me, I thought I had died. And then I felt, I saw I could move my fingers and my feet. So I knew it was all right.”

Thankfully, Cobb had already cleared a concussion test before speaking with media, but he still has more tests scheduled for Monday morning to determine if any real damage was done.
