The Packers are without Davante Adams and Allen Lazard in Week 4, but there’s no reason to worry.

Without their top two wide receivers, many Green Bay Packers fans are concerned about tonight’s matchup with the Atlanta Falcons. And I completely get it. Davante Adams and Allen Lazard are important players in Matt LaFleur’s offense. However, there’s good reason to not worry about this offense. In fact, I’ve got three reasons.

Before we get into that, here’s a quick update.

It seems Adams will miss his second game in a row due to a hamstring injury he suffered against the Detroit Lions. Adams tweeted — and then deleted — that he won’t be out there tonight against the Falcons. Lazard is on injured reserve after needing core muscle surgery earlier this week.

The Falcons are set to have their top two receivers available. According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, both Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley will play tonight after being listed as questionable on the injury report. Atlanta will have its top two pass catchers, but the opposite is true for Green Bay.

So, should we be worried about this offense ahead of tonight’s game? Absolutely not. Without both Adams and Lazard, what can we expect? Here are three reasons to not be worried about the Packers offense against the Falcons.
