Packers WR Davante Adams good to go vs. Colts after injury scare

Green Bay Packers star wideout Davante Adams gave fans a scare when he did not practice on Saturday due to an ankle injury.

However, it appears the Packers held Adams out as a precaution. Head coach Matt LaFleur said the three-time Pro Bowler will play on Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts, per Pro Football Talk.

Adams played through the issue during last weekend’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, finishing the contest with eight receptions for 66 yards and a touchdown.

The 27-year-old has been one of the best receivers in football in recent years, and the 2020 campaign has not been any different.

Adams missed a pair of games early in the year, but he still has 61 receptions for 741 yards and nine touchdowns, tied for the most in the league. His 105.9 receiving yards per game is also the best mark in the league by a good margin, with Arizona Cardinals All-Pro DeAndre Hopkins in second at 91.2 yards per game.

It is pretty remarkable Adams has had this level of success, given the Packers have had a relative shortage of quality receiving options. Allen Lazard has not played since Week 3. Aaron Jones has missed his share of games, as well. Marquez Valdes-Scantling had a massive game against the Jags, but he has struggled in general, and already has five drops.

Yet, despite constantly facing extra attention, Adams has made himself available. He has scored at least one touchdown in each of the last four games, asserting himself as one of the top red zone threats in the game.

The Packers will need Adams to produce against a stingy Colts defense.
