05:22 PM ET 10.16 | The Green Bay Packers were hit hard with injuries at wide receiver last weekend when Randall Cobb and James Jones suffered injuries during the team's Week 6 match up against the Baltimore Ravens, which could lead to second-year wideout Jarrett Boykin getting the call as the team's No. 2 receiving option in Week 7 against the Cleveland Browns. Boykin has never been a large part of the team's passing attack, but their willingness to give him the No. 2 job shows that they have plenty of confidence in the young receiver. Perhaps the greatest endorsement came from star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who had nothing but positive things about the man who he could be targeting much more than usual in the coming weeks.

Rodgers was amazing this past Sunday with who was left as WRs.

I'd say it doesn't matter who the Pack have at WR when they play the Browns ... but they do have the same record as the defending SB champs, and when they played they kept the Ravens scoreless in the first half.

He was thrown to 6 times last week and caught one. Ya he will do the trick.

Boykin had better step it up Sunday. He certainly has the skills, I think he just needs a little more game experience.

Riveting.

Don't expect the Browns to waste Joe Haden on this guy!
