The Green Bay Packers have activated receiver Randall Cobb from injured reserve in time for Sunday’s showdown with the Chicago Bears.
On Friday, coach Mike McCarthy suggested the Packers would activate Cobb if he responded well on Saturday. The Packers pushed Cobb in practice on Friday and obviously he responded.
So, Aaron Rodgers and Randall Cobb will be on the field together for the first time since October 13, on Sunday.
Cobb, who broke his tibia against Baltimore, is obviously pleased about the situation.
All Hands On Deck!!

And so are we.
The only question is what role Cobb will have on Sunday. In his absence, Jarrett Boykin has been playing like a boss. Meanwhile, we know Jordy Nelson is Aaron Rodgers’ No. 1 target. And then there’s James Jones.
Good problem to have, though.
