Packers activate Randall Cobb from injured reserve

Riddled by injuries for much of the season, the Packers’ offense is starting to get healthier down the stretch.

Two days after quarterback Aaron Rodgers returned to the starting lineup, the Packers activated wide receiver Randall Cobb from injured reserve, the club announced this afternoon.

The 23-year-old Cobb is one of the Packers’ top playmakers. He hauled in 29 passes for 378 yards and two TDs in five games (four starts) before suffering a broken leg in Green Bay’s Oct. 13 victory at Baltimore.

For his career, Cobb has caught 134 passes for 1,707 yards with 11 touchdowns. He’s also added 215 rushing yards on just 16 carries. What’s more, Cobb has three career return touchdowns.

The Packers play the Bears for the NFC North title on Sunday at Soldier Field in Chicago.

    This game should have been flexed into sunday night as soon as romos injury was made public.

    It is all coming together for a Super Bowl run. I wonder how long Matthews will be out for.

    Before everyone starts slobbering, Cobb has been actived and listed as questionable for Sundays game. There is no indication if Cobb will play Sunday and if so, how much.

    Offense is now locked and loaded. Time to go Bear hunting

    Getting healthy at the right time.

  6. f1restarter says: Dec 28, 2013 5:45 PM

    The 49ers, Seahawks, Saints, Panthers, and Eagles are praying for a Bears win tomorrow.

    They’re scared to death of the Packers.

    This is very very good news, but he has to play. They must expect to play him some or why activate him for the last game, unless there is some rule about not activating players after the season, can’t recall. I agree with nfl4days, this should be the Sunday night game. Around here the Lions and vikqueens are on at noon, so I hope the other game is good. GO PACKERS

    that’s right, everybody crown the cheese now, tomorrow will be that much better

  9. crik911 says: Dec 28, 2013 5:59 PM

    Surely a plan to make the Bears change their gameplan. I’m 98% sure he will not be playing, and if he does, he is probably taking reps from someone who is more in tune with the offense.

  10. joey49er says: Dec 28, 2013 6:02 PM

    WOW! no the 49ers want some more greenbay lol
    last time the niners had some greenbay chicken..and drank some wine and ate some cheese…lol

    What a tremendous Christmas season it’s been in Green Bay. Packers. Bears. Final game of the regular season. Win or go home. What could be better?

    Meanwhile, in hapless and tasteless MN…………

  12. axespray says: Dec 28, 2013 6:21 PM

    Falcons had the niners beat.

    The FALCONS!

  13. bobnelsonjr says: Dec 28, 2013 6:34 PM

    It sets itself up for a great game.

    The Packers and Bears in the NFL’s best rivalry. It started over 80 years ago.

    The two teams are 1st and 2nd in World Championships plus 1st and 2nd with players in the Hall of Fame.

    It should be the best game of the NFL season so far. Very serious football.

  14. wafflestomp says: Dec 28, 2013 6:47 PM

    Love this time of year. Football takes on a sense of urgency. Important season making (or breaking) games to be played tomorrow.

    And like always, the mountain of inane and senseless Viking posts, that usually clutter these Packer stories, magically disappear.

  15. taintedsaints2009 says: Dec 28, 2013 6:48 PM

    As a Vikings fan, I always thought Cobb was like a Harvin. The second they drafted this guy, I knew he would be a beast with Rodgers.

    Packers are going to go on one hell of a run, and Rodgers will once again establish himself as the leagues best quarterback. I’d rather have him than manning or Brady. Any day of the week.

    Packers fans are delusional if they think they’re going to the Super Bowl.

    When an 8-8 team hosts a playoff game against a 12-4 team, something is wrong with the NFL playoff format.

  17. 4sacroc says: Dec 28, 2013 7:03 PM

    This game is about which defense will suck less.

  18. hartleechung says: Dec 28, 2013 7:04 PM

    The 49ers, Seahawks, Saints, Panthers, and Eagles are praying for a Bears win tomorrow.

    They’re scared to death of playing like the Packers.

    Uh, you do know the Packers had to come from behind to beat the same Falcons squad a few weeks ago, and only one by 1 point?

    I remember a healthy Rodgers, Cobb, Lacy, Mathews, etc lose to the Niners with out Crabtree this year. You should beat the Bears but you will have a really tough time with the Seahawks, Niners, and Panthers.

    Those Packers also had the lead late in that game but their defense couldn’t hold on. You can keep writing off GB.

    This is a game that would be @ GB as well.

  21. aldante66 says: Dec 28, 2013 7:49 PM

    Ya sure he will be in prime shape. Wait till the cold bitter Chi air hits his lungs and he will wish he was home on the coach doing something else.

    The Packers have no defense. they cannot win period end of story.

  22. leatherface2012 says: Dec 28, 2013 8:02 PM

    hmmm bears still favored by 5. that seems odd

    why isnt he even close to mannings stats this year?

  24. goldrush36 says: Dec 28, 2013 8:05 PM

    I’m pretty sure the Niners who have pummeled GB 3 straight times.. The last without a heathy offense…. Or the hawks and Panthers have absolutely ZERO fear of facing GB

  25. emoney826 says: Dec 28, 2013 8:12 PM

    Leatherface,

    Don’t know where you get your info, but when Rodgers was cleared to play, the line came out as GB a 3 point favorite. Before that, there was no line. Check any Vegas website.

  26. dino2997 says: Dec 28, 2013 8:47 PM

    Packer fans are awfully busy mentally “preparing” themselves for the playoffs and flattering themselves on how good their team has all of a sudden become. It would truly be a shame if the season came to an end tomorrow wouldn’t it.

    The Packers were 5-2 with Rodgers.

    The Packers lost to the Bears by 7 without Rodgers.

    Odds are, the Packers would have gone 13-3 with Rodgers, destroyed the Bears both times, and had home field advantage.

    Their team has become five times better than the bears overnight.

    You’re bitter because you know it.

  28. brento1499 says: Dec 28, 2013 9:07 PM

    don’t bother activating him GB, my fantasy season is well over

    ========

    If you can get GB +5 anywhere you better put everything you own on it and then some. That is 8 points off everywhere else.

    Go Packers!

    If the Packers win, the playoff game is the following weekend.

    What time do the Vikings play on Wild Card weekend?

    That is odd. The current Vegas line has the Packers as three point favorites. I don’t know where you got that bit it is peculiar because its WRONG.

  34. tinman72 says: Dec 28, 2013 10:14 PM

    Leatherface,
    The reason he doesn’t have the same stats is because he missed 7 games.

  35. packhawk04 says: Dec 29, 2013 9:54 AM

    As a packer fan, i can say that the niners and seahawks arent afraid of green bay at all. What i will say, is who would those teams rather play? The pack, who have won a super bowl and have a QB who, if hot, they could ride to another one? Or the bears, who have one playoff win (against the 7-9 seahawks at home)?
