Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb active for Week 1

Sunday September 13th, 2015

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb is listed as active for Week 1, the team announced Sunday.

Cobb was limited during training camp and preseason with a sprained shoulder. The Packers, who will take on their division rival the Chicago Bears on Sunday, will need Cobb to make up for the absence of Jordy Nelson, who is out for the season with a torn ACL.

Cobb caught 91 passes for 1,287 yards and 12 touchdowns last season. In his career, Cobb has 227 receptions for 3.049 yards and 25 scores.

Cobb signed a four-year, $40 million deal with Green Bay in March.
