GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) — Receiver Randall Cobb has been released from the hospital after leaving the Green Bay Packers' playoff game Saturday night against the Arizona Cardinals with a chest injury.

The Packers' leading receiver posted on Twitter on Sunday that he was discharged from a Phoenix-area hospital after being held overnight for observation.

Cobb was hurt in the first quarter after stretching out for a diving 51-yard catch to the Arizona 3-yard and landing hard to the turf

"Thank you for all the prayers and support," Cobb wrote.

The Packers lost 26-20 in an overtime thriller after Larry Fitzgerald scored on a 5-yard shovel pass. Green Bay had tied it at the end of regulation on Aaron's Rodgers' 41-yard touchdown pass to Jeff Janis.

"Such a tough way to go out," Cobb wrote.
