Randall Cobb ‘thought he died’ after big hit
Randall Cobb had a big game against the Giants on Sunday. However, his evening also included a big hit that had teammates and fans concerned.
Prior to the two-minute warning in the fourth quarter, Cobb made a crucial third down conversion. At the end of the play he took a shot to the back of his head and neck area from Landon Collins. Thankfully, Cobb got up on his own and passed a concussion test after the game.
When asked about the hit, Cobb said after seeing so many people standing over him he thought the worst.
“I laid there for a second,” Cobb said, according to Packers News. “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.”
That’s pretty scary stuff. Fortunately, it wasn’t as bad as it looked live.
Cobb finished Sunday’s game with nine receptions for 108 yards. It was his first game with 100+ yards since last September and the most catches he’s had since December 2014.
