While Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb didn’t rule out returning, he isn’t certain his leg injury will allow him to play this season.

During his first interview with reporters since suffering the injury against Baltimore on Oct. 13, Cobb on Wednesday said a mid-December return is a best-case scenario.

“I can’t make that call right now,” Cobb said when asked if he is certain he will play again this season. “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.”

Cobb cast doubt on reports that he broke his fibula. When asked if those reports were inaccurate, Cobb said: “It wasn’t what it was.”

Cobb declined to reveal the exact nature of his injury.

“A broken bone, I don’t know about that,” he said. “But, hey, that was what the reports was, so it is what it is.”

Cobb confirmed he’s getting better, and doctors told him the injury would take between 6 and 8 weeks to heal. The Packers placed Cobb on injured reserve but designated him to return.

Cobb is required to sit out 8 weeks, meaning he would be eligible to come back Dec. 10 and could play in the Packers’ final three regular-season games.

But Cobb, who no longer needs crutches and stopped using a Segway to get around the facilities at Lambeau Field, didn’t make it sound like he would be ready by mid-December.

“That’s the earliest I could come back,” he said. “It’s not a target date. It’s the earliest that I can come back depending on where I am in my rehab.”

Last year, the Packers placed running back Cedric Benson on injured reserve and designated him to return, but he never came back.

If Cobb didn’t break his fibula, it’s possible he sustained a crack in the bone. Regardless, it’s been a slow recovery process.

“We’re trying to get back to walking and running,” Cobb said. “It’s really just frustrating because I can’t be out on the field. I want to be a part of the team.”
