Packers WR Davante Adams is “pushing to play” tonight.

It’s expected the Green Bay Packers will be without Davante Adams in tonight’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

However, there’s still some hope.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network, Adams is “pushing to play” and the Packers will “give him a chance to prove it”. Rapoport also described Adams’ injury as “very minor”.

If Adams is feeling close to 100 percent, it will be a difficult decision for head coach Matt LaFleur. On one hand, you want your best players on the field in the big games like this one. Having Adams healthy would give the Packers a much better chance of winning the game. However, it’s also important to look at the big picture.

If Adams plays and makes the injury worse, it won’t have been worth the risk.

Here’s the good news: Adams’ injury isn’t serious. So even if he does miss tonight’s game, this doesn’t sound like an injury that will keep him out for long. If he does play tonight, even better.

This will be something to watch as the day goes on.

Another star player, Kenny Clark, is also questionable due to the groin injury that kept him out of Week 2.

The Packers will also be hoping their other injured stars are able to play in this game. Tight end Josiah Deguara is also doubtful with an ankle/shin injury, so it’s unlikely he’ll be in action this week.

However, two players who could play are guard Elgton Jenkins and safety Darnell Savage. Both are questionable to play tonight. Jenkins is dealing with a back/rib injury, while Savage has a groin injury. Green Bay will need them both tonight.

The inactives won’t be announced until 90 minutes before kickoff, but there are some big injury questions for the Packers ahead of tonight’s game.
