GREEN BAY - A man being counted on to make a significant contributor to the Green Bay Packers' offense in 2013 had issues with a bicep injury in practice Tuesday.
Wide receiver Randall Cobb was experiencing problems with his arm in practice.

By the end of practice, Cobb was wincing, holding his right arm close to his body and clearly in pain during an 11-on-11 competitive team period.
"It looked like Randall's arm was bothering him at the end of practice," admitted Packers coach Mike McCarthy after the practice.
"It's something he's probably going to be battling for a while."
He apparently talked to reporters about the choice to practice Tuesday.
Asked if he was being smart by practicing today, Randall Cobb said "No." #Packers— Paul Imig (@Paulimig) August 13, 2013
The Packers can't afford to lose Cobb, who led the team in receiving last year (80 receptions, 954 yards, eight touchdowns).
