Packers: Davante Adams, Darnell Savage among inactives vs. Lions
The Green Bay Packers enter a huge Week 6 showdown with the Detroit Lions, but they will be without a couple of key players.
Star wide receiver Davante Adams remains out due to a toe injury, while first-round pick Darnell Savage will miss the game after suffering an ankle injury in last week’s win against the Dallas Cowboys.
Rookie running back Dexter Williams is also inactive, meaning Tra Carson will again be active along with Aaron Jones and a returning Jamaal Williams.
Here is a full list of the Packers‘ inactives for Monday Night Football:
Along with the names already mentioned, the Packers will miss cornerback Tony Brown up against a talented Lions wide receiver corps, and tight end Robert Tonyan could’ve made a difference on offense.
The Lions, too, will be without some key players.
Former Packer Mike Daniels won’t be playing at Lambeau Field tonight. Another talented defensive lineman, Da’Shawn Hand, is also out.
While cornerback Darius Slay returns from injury, defensive back Quandre Diggs won’t play. Defensive lineman A’Shawn Robinson and tight end T.J. Hockenson are both available.
Both teams will miss a couple of key players. Most notably for the Packers is Davante Adams, who has found a lot of success against the Lions in recent years.
The Packers will now need their other players on offense to step up. Aaron Jones did that last week with four touchdowns against the Cowboys, and getting Jamaal Williams back will help the ground game.
But they may also need more production from the wide receivers in this game. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Geronimo Allison will need to play well.
There aren’t too many surprises with the inactives tonight. Both teams have injuries in what is one of the most important games of the season so far for both the Packers and Lions.
