WR Cobb active for Packers against Bears

Aaron Rodgers will have one of his favorite targets back for

Green Bay’s season finale against the Chicago Bears for the NFC

North title.

Wide receiver Randall Cobb is active for the first time since he

was injured during a 19-17 win Oct. 13 at Baltimore. He was

activated from injured reserve Saturday and added to the injury

report with a knee issue.

Rodgers (collarbone) is making his first start since Nov. 4

against Chicago. He has thrown for 15 touchdowns in eight games

this season.

The Bears will be without wide receiver Earl Bennett, inactive

after he missed practice this week to tend to a family matter in


Linebackers Brad Jones (ankle) and Clay Matthews (right thumb)

also are on Green Bay’s inactive list.
