Packers Activate WR Randall Cobb From Injured Reserve

Packers Activate WR Randall Cobb From Injured Reserve

The Green Bay Packers activated wide receiver Randall Cobb as their one player designated to return from injured reserve on Saturday, one day before their de facto NFC North championship game against the Chicago Bears.

Cobb was also officially listed as "questionable" on the team's injury report, ostensibly giving him a 50/50 chance of playing.

The organization has made no guarantees that Cobb plays on Sunday, and it's possible they're trying to keep the Bears guessing. But it's also possible that they wouldn't have gone through the trouble of activating Cobb if they didn't intend him to suit up.

Cobb reportedly broke the fibula in his leg in Week 6 against the Baltimore Ravens. Before his injury, he was leading the team in receiving with 29 receptions for 378 yards (13.0 avg.) and two touchdowns.

Listened as questionable...

with an empty roster spot available, this move was a forgone conclusion. As Brian said, if nothing else, it will keep the bears (and all of the opponents in the playoffs!) guessing. Here's hoping he takes a few snaps in garbage time and shakes off some rust so that he's ready for week 1 of the playoffs.

Search your feelings, Randall; this is your destiny.

"Reportedly" ??

Cobb's recent comments obfuscated the exact nature of the injury. Generally speaking, I would assume it was a "fractured lower leg bone."

The Packers are 17-2 the last 19 years in the final game of the season.

Even if he's a decoy whether in motion, backfield, or just slot, he'll cause enough consternation for the bears secondary. Hopefully that will keep the box count down and give Lacy or Starks some lanes/yardage.

I'm all for consternation.
