The Green Bay receiving corps took quite a hit, literally and figuratively, over the weekend. Jones exited first and was quickly followed by Cobb. Both players suffered lower extremities issues but will miss varying amounts of time. Jones suffered an isolated posterior cruciate ligament (PCL) sprain in his left knee. The PCL is paired with the better-known partner anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) to stabilize the knee and prevent knee hyperextension. The PCL also serves as the central axis for knee rotation and must remain firm to allow fluid and complete motion through the joint.
