Davante Adams “good to go” for the Packers in Week 11.

The Green Bay Packers offense got a huge boost on Friday with head coach Matt LaFleur saying star wide receiver Davante Adams “should be good to go” against the Indianapolis Colts.

Dealing with an ankle injury from last week’s win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, there was some uncertainty about whether Adams would be able to play this week, especially after he didn’t practice on Thursday.

However, there’s good news. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, LaFleur said Adams “has made good progress”.

This is significant for the Packers as they prepare to take on the league’s number one-ranked defense on Sunday.

For the Packers to be able to find success against this defense, they need their best players out there. Just having Adams on the field changes things for the defense, who have to prepare for him by either moving a safety to his side or putting their best cornerback on him.

And when that happens, one-on-one opportunities are opened up for the other pass catchers.

It’s still unclear whether Allen Lazard will return this week. Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel tweeted that he “doesn’t appear to be a lock to make his return”. We’ll get a better idea when the Packers release their injury report later today, and it won’t be a surprise if Lazard is listed as questionable.

The possibility of the Packers having their top three wide receivers all on the field together for the first time since Week 2 is particularly exciting. Consider how good this offense has been in 2020, and then remember that for most of the games this season, they’ve been either without Adams or Lazard.

The final injury report will give us a better idea of who will be ready to go in Week 11, but it looks likes Adams will be out there.
