While we await updates on the statuses of injured Green Bay Packers wide receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones, it's fair to wonder how the team will proceed if they are unable to play in Week 7 and beyond. If test results imply that one or both will be out for a long stretch of games, they may take a look at trade options like the New York Giants' Hakeem Nicks. However, the Packers rarely step out of their long-term plan of building from within, so it's far more likely that they will roll with the players they have already. Specifically, they should lean on the rushing attack that they have developed over the past couple of games with Eddie Lacy.
