    How is he probable for the game if he's still on IR and not even on the roster? Also, I didn't think it was ever his knee.
    Not trying to be a smart arse I'm just honestly wondering.

    They have until tomorrow afternoon to put him on the roster. They're going to see how he feels tomorrow and if all is good, he'll probably play. I doubt he'll start but they'll probably get him on the field to get him some reps to he can go full-bore in the playoffs. I expect him to at least dress this week. I would guess he'll probably get somewhere between 10-15 snaps.

    Think about our current weapons.

    -Rodgers.
    -Lacy the brusier..... (and Starks running great behind him. And we're missing DuJuan Harris & Jonathan Franklin.)
    -Cobb, the do-everything.
    -Jordy deep and sidelines
    -Jones

    Those are all guys who can hurt a defense. And fast.

    I'd love to see Jace Amaro added to that list. Then if Finley could beat the odds and continue playing... holy crap.

    Having Cobb even as a decoy would help AR immensely. It would give him a good place to go with the ball when under duress. I dont think they put Cobb on the field if he isnt ready to go.

    To clarify, I knew about the new temporary IR rule from last year. I was just wondering how they could classify him as probable when as of right now he is still technically on the
    IR and has not been activated. Hope he can play Sunday.

    Today we should find out if Cobb is a go tomorrow.

    He adds a very dangerous element to our offense and I want him back badly.

    Packers have activated Cobb from IR.

    This is big. It's funny that the media has completely down played Cobb coming back. He is huge in the slot. If he's fully healthy, da Bears won't be able to cover him with Nelson and Jones out there too. Go Pack!

    Bingo. If you look at the first drive against Chicago in the first game, their defense was basically playing Cover 2 with the 2 safeties playing extra deep. With Cobb in the slot, Nelson on the right and Jones on the left, the linebackers will have to play deep too, leaving Lacy to run all over them.

    Rodgers and Cobb can make the difference between stumbling into the playoffs only to get knocked off early and making a serious Super Bowl push. With our offense running at peak efficiency, we can compete with anyone, anywhere.

    Someone mentioned how Cobb coming back will be huge for the Packers and the other guy said "Who is that?"... I think I screamed at the tv.

    The only one I'm happy about is Mr. Rodgers.
    Not that we don't need Cobb but I thought we did OK without him.
