Davante Adams and Kenny Clark are “ready to go” for the Packers in Week 6.
As expected, the Green Bay Packers will get two star players back in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
The Packers have released their injury report ahead of Sunday’s game, and both wide receiver Davante Adams and defensive tackle Kenny Clark don’t carry an injury designation.
Head coach Matt LaFleur said that both players “will be ready to go” on Sunday.
There’s more good news as cornerbacks Jaire Alexander and Chandon Sullivan will play. Alexander has been dealing with hand and knee injuries, while Sullivan is back from a concussion.
However, Green Bay could be without another starting cornerback, Kevin King, who is listed as questionable to play. He didn’t practice on Wednesday or Thursday but did return on Friday, although he was limited.
Some more concerning news is that edge rusher Za’Darius Smith is also questionable. A full participant at practice earlier in the week, Smith was downgraded to limited on Friday as he deals with an ankle injury. It would take a lot for Smith not to play, so we should expect him to battle through his injury.
Another edge rusher, Rashan Gary, is also questionable due to an ankle injury. He missed the game in Week 4 and has been limited at practice all week. The Packers will need both Smith and Gary this week up against a strong Buccaneers offense.
The Packers are relatively healthy after the bye. Running back/returner Tyler Ervin is the only player ruled out due to a wrist injury, while no players on the injury report have been listed as doubtful.
The Bucs haven’t ruled any players out for this game, although cornerback Carlton Davis, defensive lineman Khalil Davis, and running back Leonard Fournette are all questionable. The talented receiving trio of Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, and Scotty Miller will all be available.
