Packers WRs Randall Cobb, James Jones leave with injuries

The Packers got past the Ravens on Sunday without two of their top offensive weapons for the majority of the afternoon. Wide receiver James Jones went down with a left shin injury in the first quarter. Then Randall Cobb @rcobb18 suffered a right knee injury in the second quarter. Neither player returned to the game, and Cobb used crutches to get around the sideline during the second half.
The preliminary word on both players is relatively positive. It's believed both players have dodged serious injury, but more will be known Monday.

Fantasy Analysis:

The play on which Cobb got injured looked particularly brutal. He appeared to take a helmet to the knee and ended up being carted off the field. However, a source has told ESPN's Adam Schefter that Cobb will "be OK." We'll probably have a more informative update on Monday. If either player needs to miss some time, Jarrett Boykin @BoyKinHeCatch would see an increase in snaps, but it would mean more targets -- and more defensive attention -- for Jordy Nelson @JordyRNelson and Jermichael FInley.
