Randall Cobb's MRI revealed only a sprained AC joint in his shoulder.

Cobb admitted he feared a broken collarbone when he left holding his arm with the injury, but it's a mere sprain, or partial tear. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport calls Cobb's injury "minor," but acknowledges there's still "no word" on whether Cobb will be ready for Week 1. It sounds like a day-to-day injury. We like Cobb's chances of being all set for Opening Day against the Bears.

X-rays on Randall Cobb's injured shoulder came back negative.

He'll have more tests Sunday but it looks like he's going to be okay. Cobb got hurt on his third play from scrimmage Saturday against the Eagles. At first he thought he broke his collarbone but that wasn't the case. "I just caught the ball and was going down to the ground, and I had a guy land on top of me," said Cobb. "It's not what we think it could've been." Cobb isn't sure if he'll be ready for Week 1 against Chicago.

NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports Randall Cobb's shoulder injury is believed to be minor.

Per Rapsheet, Cobb is believed to have escaped with a minor sprain. It's the best possible news for the Packers, who couldn't afford even a short absence from their new No. 1 receiver. As it is, Cobb now has 14 days to get ready for Week 1, and should be ready to roll as a WR1 against the Bears. Cobb's status will be updated sometime in the next 24-48 hours.

Packers RT Bryan Bulaga suffered an ankle injury in Saturday's preseason game.

The injury isn't considered serious, but it's a concern for an offense that's already lost Jordy Nelson. Bulaga should be considered day to day.

Jeff Janis had three catches for 72 yards and a touchdown in the Packers' third preseason game.

Janis was behind Ty Montgomery in three-wide sets, but saw an expanded role after Randall Cobb went down. The Packers played Janis deep into the second half, with his touchdown coming on a 27-yard pass from Matt Blanchard. Cobb's shoulder injury has potential to create an opportunity for Janis.

Ty Montgomery caught two passes for 71 yards in Saturday's preseason game.

Montgomery started over Jeff Janis in three-wide sets. He played into the third quarter, but made a 52-yard catch against the Eagles first-team defense. With Randall Cobb leaving early with a shoulder injury, there's potential for Montgomery to have a big early-season role. Montgomery has four catches for 99 yards through three preseason games.

Richard Rodgers caught one pass for 10 yards in the Packers' third preseason game.

Rodgers was mostly a non-factor, getting targeted on Brett Hundley’s pick-six. He drew a pass interference that set up a James Starks one-yard touchdown. With Jordy Nelson out for the year and Randall Cobb dealing with a shoulder injury, Rodgers is on the low-end TE2 radar.

Davante Adams was held without a catch in the Packers' third preseason game.

The Packers didn’t want to take any chances with Adams after losing Randall Cobb to a shoulder injury, removing him after the first series. Adams has just three catches for 17 yards this preseason, but is poised for a breakout year as Aaron Rodgers' No. 2 option.

Eddie Lacy had four carries for two yards in Saturday's third preseason game.

Lacy only played a limited role in the first quarter. The Packers are managing his preseason reps, but Lacy projects for a heavy workload with Jordy Nelson out for the season. Lacy should be drafted as a top-five fantasy back.

Randall Cobb suffered a shoulder injury in the Packers' third preseason game.

Cobb injured his shoulder trying to make a catch on the opening series. He was immediately take to the locker room, and is likely done for the game. The Packers can't afford to lose Cobb after Jordy Nelson's season-ending torn ACL. Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis will get an extended look in three-wide sets.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel expects the Green Bay defensive communication to be tested against Philadelphia in Week 3 of the preseason.

The Eagles famously run their offense at a speedy clip, so Dom Capers will have his defense focused on communication in between snaps. It will be an interesting test for the Packers defense, who will be a decent Week 1 fantasy option as they travel to Soldier Field to take on Jay Cutler and the Bears, who turned the ball over 29 times (sixth in the NFL) in 2014.

The Packers are expected to rest their starters in Saturday's preseason game against the Eagles.

It means we probably won't get a look at new starting receiver Davante Adams. The Pack are packing it in after last Sunday's game from hell, where Jordy Nelson (ACL) was lost for the season. Several linemen are at less than 100 percent, which would have exposed Aaron Rodgers to unnecessary risk. If Adams indeed isn't playing, he finishes his preseason with three catches for 17 yards. That presupposes he sits out the finale, of course.

Packers LE Letroy Guion's three-game suspension for violating the league's substance-abuse policy has been upheld.

Guion was arrested on marijuana and gun charges in February. He'll return as the Packers' left end in Week 4.

The Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel reports DE Mike Daniels and the Packers have broken off contract negotiations.

Daniels is reportedly looking for around $10 million a year, while the Packers' offers have been for several million less per season. $10 million per year would put Daniels in the same range as Corey Liuget, who signed a five-year, $51.25 million contract in June. An ascending player entering the final year of his deal, Daniels may decide to bet on himself and cash in next offseason.

Aaron Rodgers saw limited snaps in Wednesday's practice.

ESPN Packers reporter Rob Demovsky sees this as a sign Rodgers may not play in the team's third preseason game. Green Bay lost Jordy Nelson in their second preseason game and will be without three of their starting offensive linemen this week. With Scott Tolzien sidelined by a concussion, Brett Hundley and Matt Blanchard would carry the quarterback load if Rodgers sits.
