Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Randall Cobb picked up a rib injury in Sunday’s demolishing of the Giants that left Jason Garrett guessing on his immediate status.
“We’ll see what his availability is on Wednesday,” the Cowboys’ head coach said Monday.
It’s unclear exactly when Cobb was injured amid Dallas’ 35-17 win over New York. He played 48 offensive snaps (71 percent), third-most after fellow WRs Amari Cooper (52 snaps) and Michael Gallup (53) and quarterback Dak Prescott (65).
The issue doesn’t appear to be overly serious, with Garrett terming it “a little rib thing.”
Cobb, the former Pro Bowler who spent his first eight seasons with Green Bay, was electric in his Dallas debut, catching four passes for 69 yards and a touchdown — one of four thrown by Prescott, who set an opening day franchise record with 405 passing yards.
Cobb, who signed a one-year, $5 million deal with the Cowboys in free agency, is entrenched as the team’s No. 3 wideout behind Cooper and Gallup.
Dallas returns to practice Wednesday in advance of their Week 2 road matchup against the Washington Redskins.
