Randall Cobb: Packers’ WR could return vs. Bears

Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

This Sunday, the Green Bay Packers and Chicago Bears will play with the NFC North on the line. It’s a winner take all for the NFC North title and perhaps more importantly, a spot in the 2013 NFL playoffs.

While the health status of quarterback Aaron Rodgers is on the forefront of everybody’s mind—Packers and Bears fans alike—there is another injured Packers’ star who could end up making his return this Sunday.

He may not be getting the press that Rodgers’ collarbone is getting, but outside of Rodgers and running back Eddie Lacy, there may not be a more important player to the Packers’ offense than Randall Cobb.

According to reports, there’s a good chance Cobb will return this weekend for the big clash in Chicago. At the forefront of the report is NFL.com insider Ian Rapoport:

Imagine, if you will, the threat this Packers’ team would become if both Rodgers and Cobb come back in the same week. If they beat Chicago and win the NFC North, they’ve acquired enough depth and confidence through this injury plagued season to be a major player in the playoffs.

If solid players like Matt Flynn and Jarrett Boykin could keep the Pack productive, how good will they be when Rodgers and Cobb return?
