Randall Cobb seeks big year in Green Bay

LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - "Yeah it was tough," said Randall Cobb. "It was definitely one of the low points of my life, being injured missing ten weeks and not being able to play."

After missing most of last season with a knee injury, Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb says he's back to full strength.

"I was fortunate enough that it was no ligament damage. It was just a bone issue so once my bone healed up I was good to go."

Cobb was able to return from injury for the final game of the regular season in 2013 and produced one of the biggest moments in Packers history. A 48-yard touchdown to take a 33-28 lead over the Chicago Bears in a critical win-or-go-home battle for the NFC North.

"It was definitely a bright spot in my career and just to have such a historic moment like that. Especially when you look at the Green Bay Packers and our history. To have a play like that, that's going to resonate in everybody's minds for the rest of our lives, I think definitely was a big part."

2014 is a contract year for Cobb, as his rookie contract is set to expire at the end of next season. He knows it will be important for him to continue to perform on the field. So far, he says he's pleased with what he's been able to accomplish.

"I've always had that expectation and set a goal in mind four years in. I think I've surpassed all those goals and I'm very fortunate, and hopefully I can continue to get better year in and year out and just do all that I can to get better."
