According to Tyler Dunne of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Green Bay Packers receiver Randall Cobb is likely to return for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears after the team activated him today from the injured reserve list:
Wide receiver Randall Cobb has been activated to the 53-man roster and could play Sunday at Chicago.
Out since mid-October with a leg fracture, Cobb was lifted off of injured reserve with designation to return. He has been running for three weeks and the team ran him through an exhaustive practice on Friday to test his leg.
For just the third full game, the Packers could have Aaron Rodgers, Eddie Lacy and Cobb on the field at once.
The former Kentucky Wildcats great has been sidelined since the team’s Week 6 win over the Baltimore Ravens with a leg injury that was set to cost him “multiple weeks” and ended up being worse, as he’s missed nearly the entire season now.
Cobb finished the 2012 season by leading the Packers in catches (80), targets (104), receiving yards (954) and total yards (1,086) to go with eight touchdowns along the way.
