Davante Adams remains out of practice for Packers
Green Bay Packers star wide receiver Davante Adams still remains sidelined with a turf toe injury he sustained in Green Bay’s Week 4 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles. Adams was in the midst of having his biggest game of the season before the injury kept him out of Green Bay’s crucial last-minute drive.
Although Adams was kept out the following week, the Packers were able to handle their business in Dallas with running back Aaron Jones rushing for four scores.
What was thought to be a non-serious injury has turned into a bit of a dilemma for the Packers. The team is 4-1 and still sits atop the NFC North, but the Lions are not far behind. Monday night’s game against that same Detroit team will prove to be crucial for division standings.
The Packers, of course, want Adams healthy and ready to go but they did not expect an absence this lengthy.
According to Josh Alper of NBC Sports, Green Bay will get running back Jamaal Williams back after being carted off the field after taking a vicious shot to the head. This will add to a running game that led the Packers to victory last week behind Jones’ 182 scrimmage yards.
They might have to rely on that running game once again if Adams cannot go this Monday, but let’s not forget who is under center for the Packers.
If the Packers can jump on the Lions early, as they did against the Cowboys, they’ll be in a prime position to keep that top stop in the division.
