BALTIMORE — The Green Bay Packers lost Randall Cobb and James Jones — two of their top three receivers — in the first half of Sunday’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.

After Jones went down with a left leg injury in the first quarter, Cobb left with a right knee injury in the second quarter. Neither player will return to the game.

The Packers were left with only two available receivers — Jordy Nelson and the seldom-used Jarrett Boykin.

Cobb had four catches for 53 yards while Jones had one catch for 10 yards before departing. Cobb came into the game with a team-high 25 catches, while Jones led the Packers with 339 yards receiving.

Jones was injured while blocking on a run by Eddie Lacy. Cobb got hurt after he caught a 15-yard pass. He appeared to get hit on the knee by the helmet of Ravens safety Matt Elam.

Shortly before halftime, Packers linebacker Nick Perry also sustained an apparent right knee injury after he sacked Ravens quarterback Joe Flacco, who fumbled on the play.

The Packers recovered the fumble with two seconds left in the half, and Mason Crosby kicked a 31-yard field goal that gave the Packers a 6-0 halftime lead.
