GREEN BAY, Wis. — Packers receiver Randall Cobb has been activated from injured reserve and has been listed as questionable for Sunday’s crucial game against the Chicago Bears.
Cobb was the team’s allotted player on injured reserve who was designated for return after getting hurt during a 19-17 win Oct. 13 at Baltimore. The playmaking wideout was added to the injury report Saturday with a knee injury.
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) is already returning Sunday and is expected to start against the Bears in the game to decide the NFC North title.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he gave Cobb more work in practice Friday to help determine whether he should be activated.
