Former University of Kentucky star Randall Cobb was released from a Phoenix-area hospital after leaving the Green Bay Packers’ playoff game Saturday night against the Arizona Cardinals with a chest injury.
The Packers’ leading receiver posted on Twitter on Sunday that he was discharged from a hospital after being held overnight for observation.
Cobb was hurt in the first quarter after stretching out for a diving 51-yard catch to the Arizona 3-yard and landing hard to the turf .
“I’m feeling much better. Thank you for all the prayers and support,” Cobb wrote.
The Packers lost 26-20 in an overtime thriller after Larry Fitzgerald scored on a 5-yard shovel pass. Green Bay had tied it at the end of regulation on Aaron Rodgers’ 41-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Janis.
“Such a tough way to go out,” Cobb wrote.
