According to Green Bay Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy, wide receiver Randall Cobb has a good chance to return for Sunday’s game against the Chicago Bears after practicing today:

"“I feel a lot better now than I probably did this morning,” McCarthy said. “But he definitely took a step in that direction.”"

Cobb finished the 2012 season by leading the Packers in catches (80), targets (104), receiving yards (954) and total yards (1,086) to go with eight touchdowns along the way.

And with McCarthy revealing earlier today that the Packers will also have QB Aaron Rodgers on Sunday, the Packers are looking great after not many people were giving them a shot to win the NFC North.

Rodgers hasn’t  played since fracturing his left collarbone against the Bears at Lambeau Field on Nov. 4, has missed the past seven games. Including the loss to the Bears when he was injured at the end of the Packers’ opening series, the Packers have gone 2-5-1 with three different starters at quarterback.

The Packers are suddenly becoming a darkhorse team in the NFL playoffs. That is, as long as they can beat the Bears.
