The Sports Xchange

The Green Bay Packers expect to have leading receiver Randall Cobb in the lineup against the Chicago Bears on Sunday, while the Bears aren’t certain who they will have available in their receiving corps.

The Packers officially listed Cobb as probable Friday after he took part in limited practice for the third consecutive day. He had been sidelined since suffering a sprained right shoulder in Green Bay’s penultimate preseason game Aug. 29, but returned to practice Wednesday and is expected to play.

Meanwhile, the Bears listed their top three wideouts – Alshon Jeffery (calf), Eddie Royal (hip) and Marquess Wilson (hamstring) – as questionable.

Jeffery said midweek he hoped to play and would be on the field if he’s not limited. Royal returned to limited practice this week after missing two full weeks and Wilson also took part in limited practice for the third consecutive day.

The Packers listed linebacker Sam Barrington (ankle) and safety Morgan Burnett (shoulder) as questionable.

The Bears’ injury report included linebacker Sam Acho, who is out with an illness. Linebacker Jon Bostic (ankle)is questionable, while left tackle Jermon Bushrod (back), backup quarterback Jimmy Clausen (concussion) and defensive tackle Eddie Goldman (concussion) are all probable.
