Buzzing News from Woj:

Packers WR Cobb activated, questionable

The SportsXchange

The Green Bay Packers activated wide receiver Randall Cobb from injured reserve/designated to return on Saturday after the team arrived in Chicago for Sunday's game against the Bears.

Cobb is eligible to play in the regular-season finale and could join quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who is recovered from a broken collarbone.

Cobb fractured the tibia in his right leg on Oct. 13 against the Baltimore Ravens.

Even though Cobb is activated from the IR, he was listed as questionable on the team's injury report.

Cobb returned to practice last week and practiced in full pads Thursday.

"This week in practice I'm going out and preparing to play," he said Thursday. "That's not my call to make. My position is to communicate with the coaches and with the training staff how I feel and just let them know that and let them make that decision."

Cobb then practiced fully Friday, an important step in being activated.

At the time he was injured, Cobb led the Packers with 29 receptions.

Because the Packers were a player short of the 53-man roster, they did not have to make a corresponding move after activating Cobb.
