Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has been dealt some more disappointing injury news after wide receiver Randall Cobb revealed he might not play again this NFL season, reports

The 23-year-old is currently on short-term injured reserve after picking up a leg injury last month. And, as he continues his rehabilitation, he has hinted that the recovery might take longer than initially expected, intimating that he won't be ready for the Week 15 meeting with the Dallas Cowboys in mid-December.

"I can't make that call right now," Cobb told the Green Bay Press-Gazette. "Right now, today, I cannot play. I'm doing everything I can.

"I'm working my butt off in the rehab process. This is something that it needs time. It's getting better. There's still no timeline on when I can come back."

With quarterback Aaron Rodgers also sidelined at the moment, the Packers have suffered a major dip in form, losing three matches in a row for the first time since 2008.

With Cobb and Rodgers on their roster, the NFC North franchise are among the best in the business, but have clearly struggled without them.

Despite their poor run, Cobb insists he will not be rushed back, for fear of suffering a setback, and ruling himself out of playing contention for the Packers in the future.

"That's the earliest I could come back," added the pass-catcher. "It's not a target date. It's the earliest that I can come back depending on where I am in my rehab."
