The Packers left Baltimore with a 19-17 victory Sunday afternoon, but lost two key offensive weapons in the first half of play.

Wide receivers James Jones and Randall Cobb both exited Sunday’s game with injuries and did not return. Jones reportedly hyperextended his left knee, while Cobb suffered an injury to his right knee.

Jones hurt his left leg while blocking for Packers running back Eddie Lacy in the first quarter. While running out in front of Lacy, Jones took two steps towards a defender to block, before falling to the ground. He limped off the field with assistance from team training staff.

Cobb was injured after making a leaping 15-yard pass reception in the second quarter. As Cobb came down with the catch, Ravens safety Matt Elam’s helmet caught Cobb around the right knee area. It appeared Elam made contact with Cobb’s knee just as Cobb’s foot was touching back down onto the field. After somersaulting forward following the hit, Cobb immediately grabbed for his knee, rolling on the ground in clear pain.

According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, the injuries to Jones and Cobb are not believed to be serious.

Following Jones and Cobb’s injuries, the Packers were left with only two active wide receivers in their lineup- Jordy Nelson and Jarrett Boykin.

Update: A source reportedly told ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter that Cobb will likely miss two weeks with his knee injury.
