    I initially thought he broke a tooth, but the report was that his lungs were damaged. Yikes. Even worse is that he's staying in Arizona for the night. Hope Cobby is alright.

    I thought it might be serious... He didn't come back. He is tough.

    I love Cobb. I've seen a LOT of posts saying that he gave up after getting his deal, but all I see one of the hardest working players on the team. Love this guy, he will bounce back next year.

    to cough up blood because of landing that hard is the first I have ever seen in all my years of watching football.

    My sister is an athletic trainer and she is betting he broke a rib which partially punctured a lung. The good news is that lungs heal like everything else. They generally heal pretty fast too. He'll be fine.

    Jones played with broken ribs a few years ago and was coughing up blood. Hope Cobb's gonna be ok!

    They said he was taken to a local hospital and would be left over night for observation. So I think it's something serious enough if he was coughing blood. Hope he gets well soon

    I watched when he took a knee, and saw the blood. At first it appeared he'd bit his tongue or lip, then it seemed he coughed up blood. Always a bad thing

    I hope that serious health concerns are not piled on top of his heartbreak at the loss. At least he won't feel he needs to try to get back on the field before he's fully healed.

    I just read that it appears he is fine and he has been released from the hospital. Cobb posted the good news for everyone on Twitter.

    Really good news. I feared much worse.

    Bruised is better than punctured.
