BALTIMORE — Jordy Nelson gave a glimmer of hope. Mike McCarthy gave no information whatsoever.

But the bottom line Sunday afternoon was this: The Green Bay Packers were hoping that wide receivers Randall Cobb and James Jones didn't suffer season-ending leg injuries during the team's 19-17 victory over the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium.

McCarthy was, as is his policy, unwilling to give any information about Jones, who went down with what was being termed a leg injury with 9 minutes 48 seconds left in the first quarter, or Cobb, who was hit in the right knee with 22 seconds left in the first half. Cobb left on a cart but came back to the sideline on crutches during the second half; Jones limped to the locker room during the first half and wasn't seen after that.

"We'll find out tomorrow," McCarthy said when asked about the two players' injuries. "I'm hopeful with Randall for good information tomorrow, once we get him back (to Green Bay). James Jones, I'm hoping for good information there, too. I really don't have anything. We don't have a full diagnosis on either one of those guys."

But apparently there was at least a partial diagnosis for each player, based on what Nelson said.

"Hopefully it's not as bad as some of it looked and they'll be back quick," Nelson said after the game. Asked how worried he is about his friends, Nelson replied, "We're always worried whenever somebody obviously goes out of a game. As far as I know, it's possibly not as bad as it could have been. So hopefully that stays the course. We'll find out more this week and hopefully it's a quick recovery. We're going to miss them while they're gone."

While Jones and Cobb, who presumably will undergo MRI tests Monday, are out, the Packers will have to add wide receivers to the roster. The Packers have only one on the practice squad currently — Myles White — after rookie seventh-round pick Charles Johnson signed onto the Cleveland Browns' 53-man roster on Saturday. A league source said Johnson signed with the Browns, whom the Packers play next Sunday at Lambeau Field, before giving the Packers a chance to keep him.

Tryone Walker, an undrafted free agent who was released by the Packers on the final roster reduction, signed with the Seattle Seahawks' practice squad shortly thereafter but was later released. He remains available.

Ex-returner Jeremy Ross, whom the Packers cut Sept. 23 after he fumbled a kickoff against Cincinnati a day earlier, is currently on the Detroit Lions' practice squad. McCarthy said after Ross' release that the Packers "haven't given up on Jeremy" and would "have no problem working with him again."

The agent for retired wide receiver Donald Driver, Jordan Woy, did not immediately return an email Sunday night asking if the team had expressed any interest in his client.
