Davante Adams won’t set any Packers records on Sunday

Wide receiver Davante Adams said during the week that he expected to play in Sunday’s game against the Lions despite a knee injury, but that’s not how things played out.

Adams is inactive and that means Sterling Sharpe will hold onto the team record for receptions in a season for at least one more year. Adams had 111 catches through the first 15 games of the season, which left him one behind Sharpe on the team’s leaderboard.

Adams was also within reach of the team’s single-season receiving yards record. He’ll remain 133 yards behind Jordy Nelson‘s franchise record 1,519 yards, however.

Equanimeous St. Brown is also missing from the receiver group for Green Bay. Randall Cobb, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'Mon Moore, Jake Kumerow and Allen Lazard are active on Sunday.

  1. As a Vikings fan, I said last year that Adams is legit and deserved the money cause his numbers didn’t dip with Hundley at QB. I said with Rodgers back, he would have 1500 yards…

  2. Individual records is all my Packers have got left. It’s all down hill from here on out now that Aaron has his last big contract.

    Go Pack.

    That’s quite alright.
    Great season by Adams, and one of the few bright spots in what has been a dismal year.
    Rest up and gear up for next season.

    Yep, get that knee right Devante. Your offseason championship run starts April 25th. Gotta be ready!

  4. Sterling Sharpe was my first lesson that athletes are not Gods. You couldn’t find a person more awful to fans/kids than Sterling when he was a star. I won’t be upset at all when his name is off of all of the Packers record books.

  5. The Packers were eliminated on 12/16. The Vikings will be eliminated on 12/30. Congrats on that.

    Sure. With what they’re predicting the cap to go up to, and with what the Packers are going to carry over from this year, they’re only going to have about $40 million to spend. Suffice it to say, the Packers will be able to target anybody they really want to in free agency this off season.
