BALTIMORE — The Green Bay Packers lost receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones to leg injuries in the first half Sunday at Baltimore.
Jones appeared to hurt his left knee on a pass play in the first quarter. He limped off the field, and the Packers called it a “leg injury.” He did not return. Jones has 20 catches for 349 yards and two touchdowns.
Cobb, the team’s best breakaway threat at the position, was injured when he was struck in the right leg on a tackle by safety Matt Elam.
Cobb missed the rest of the game with a knee injury. He has 29 catches for 378 yards and two touchdowns.
SCHAUB INJURES ANKLE: In Houston, Texans quarterback Matt Schaub left against the Rams in the third quarter with an apparent right ankle injury.
Schaub was injured when he was sacked by Chris Long late in the third quarter. He remained on the turf for a few minutes before trainers helped him as he hobbled off the field.
Texans coach Gary Kubiak didn’t have details on Schaub’s injury after the game, saying only: “Matt’s got a little bit of everything on that one leg.”
Campbell injures right leg: In San Francisco, Cardinals defensive end Calais Campbell was carted off the field with an apparent right leg injury. Campbell was hurt when his leg buckled beneath him as he helped bring down Frank Gore on a 1-yard gain late in the game.
Colts at Chargers
Pagano brothers set to scrap: You can pretty much bet that if John Pagano tried to call Chuck Pagano this week, the older brother didn’t pick up. The brothers have coached against each other before, but Monday night will be the first since Chuck became head coach of the Indianapolis Colts and John was promoted to defensive coordinator of the San Diego Chargers.
Chuck Pagano, seven years older than John, has done what he can to help his younger brother along the way: “As much as I possibly can, like any brother would do for a sibling. No more, no less. Obviously none this week.”
The Colts (4-1) are alone in first in the AFC South behind Andrew Luck, a power running game and a defense intent on working over Philip Rivers and the puzzling Chargers (2-3), who looked great in beating Dallas and miserable in losing at Oakland. ”
