Two days after announcing that quarterback Aaron Rodgers would return from a broken collarbone and start today’s game against the Chicago Bears, the Packers activated receiver Randall Cobb off the injured reserve/designated to return list Saturday.
That clears the way for Cobb to play for the first time since he fractured the tibia in his right leg Oct. 13 against the Baltimore Ravens.
The Packers also added Cobb to the injury report Saturday.
He was listed as questionable, meaning there is no guarantee that he will be active for the game.
Cobb returned to practice last week and practiced in full pads on Thursday.
TEXANS: Penn State coach Bill O’Brien has emerged as the overwhelming favorite to become the team’s next coach, and the two sides are working to get a deal in place within the next week, according to ESPN.com.
BEARS: Signed fullback Tony Fiammetta to a two-year extension that will keep him with the team through the 2015 season.
Fiammetta has appeared in each of the Bears’ first 15 games in his first season in Chicago, helping running back Matt Forte total 1,229 yards rushing - nine short of Forte’s career high set in 2008.
