The Packers could be without Davante Adams in Week 11 after he didn’t practice on Thursday.
It’s never a good sign when a player goes from limited practice to no practice from one day to the next. That’s the case for Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams ahead of Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Adams was bothered by an ankle injury late in last week’s win against the Jacksonville Jaguars but he still came up with the game-winning touchdown.
He was limited at practice on Wednesday but didn’t practice on Thursday. Perhaps just precautionary, but the bigger concern is if he’s had a setback that means he was unable to practice today.
Adams missed two games earlier in the season and while the Packers were able to win both (as well as the four he missed last year), it would become a daunting challenge for this offense without him against the league’s top-ranked defense.
It’s still also unclear whether Allen Lazard will make his return this week. The Packers have activated him from injured reserve, but they had to do so this week as the 21-day window would close before next week. He’s been listed as a limited participant at practice on the injury report the past two days.
We’ll know a lot more when the injury report is released tomorrow with the game status for each player. It’s possible the Packers could be without Adams and Lazard as they were in Week 4 against the Atlanta Falcons. But a positive way to look at it? They could have both Adams and Lazard healthy for the first time since Week 2.
Let’s hope Adams was rested as a precaution today and will be ready to go on Sunday against the Colts. If both Adams and Lazard are out there on Sunday, the Packers’ chances of winning would go up a lot. Without them, it would be a difficult for this offense against a strong defense.
