Packers tight end Jared Cook is expected to miss some time with a high ankle sprain.

Although there’s been no official word from the team and the Packers are on their bye this week, a high ankle sprain usually takes several weeks to heal, so it’s unlikely that he’d be on the field when they return in Week Five against the Giants.

Cook was seen in the Packers’ locker room on crutches and wearing a protective boot.

Through three games, Cook is fourth on the team with six catches.

While Cook is out, Richard Rodgers and Justin Perillo will get more playing time at tight end. Devon Cajuste could be called up from the practice squad if the Packers think they need a third healthy tight end on the roster.
