Already without Davante Adams, the Green Bay Packers lost another of their top receivers early in the third quarter of Monday night’s game against the Detroit Lions.

Geronimo Allison was knocked out of the game after a violent collision with Lions cornerback Tracy Walker on the first play from scrimmage of the third quarter. Aaron Rodgers‘ pass intended for Allison was slightly ahead of his intended target. Both Allison and Walker were playing the football with Allison diving the pass as Walker tried to slide in for the ball from behind.

Walker’s slide took him into Allison for a helmet-to-helmet contact as Allison appeared to be knocked out from the hit. He was immediately attended to be trainers before leaving the field under his own power. After a brief stop in the sideline medical tent, Allison went to the locker room for further evaluation.

Allison was listed as questionable to return due to a chest injury from the play while also getting evaluated for a concussion.

Marquez Valdes-Scantling had been sidelined for a while as well as Green Bay’s receiver group became a bit sparse. With Adams inactive, Allison out and Valdes-Scantling a spectator, the Packers had just Jake Kumerow, Darrius Shepherd and Allen Lazard available at receiver. Valdes-Scantling would return to the game with Allison out.

Update 10:55 p.m. ET: The Packers officially ruled out Allison for the remainder of the game. He is still being evaluated for a concussion.

  1. I hope Allison is okay. That looked like a completed pass to Detroit rb Johnson & then a fumble out of bounds after 2 steps with the ball & an attempted football move. What do you guys think?

  2. Rodgers is going to get his receivers killed. If Brady had Rodgers arm talent he would have won like 10 SBs.

  3. No problem, even if they had their practice squad on the field, with e imaginary face mask calls, the refs would make sure they won. Might as well end the season and hand them the Super Bowl trophy today.

  4. Just watched the 3rd call in a row for gb. It was obvious p.i. I’m done for the night. Like I have said before the NFL officiating is terrible. The badness is excruciating!

    More like 3 steps.

  6. That penalty that gave the Packers a first down at the end of the game was total B.S. Even if it happened, it had no impact on the play and it basically gives the game to the Packers. There is all kinds of crap not called during a game and to call that is the refs stepping in to determine the outcome.

  7. These refs better be suspended for throwing this game. Unbelievable! They must have money on this game. Never have I seen a game called this bad. I’m not a Lions or Packers fan. No dog in this fight. Just horrible.

  8. So there were three missed calls for Green Bay. 2 hands to the face and a PI on a Detroit reciever not called. Not a fan of either team, but that has to be hard to.swallow for Lions fans

  9. I know that we have had some good referees retire. However, hands to the face on the defense is a rare call. Especially against someone who has never had it called on them before. Replay clearly showed that there was no actual hands to the face, just hands to the shoulder pad. It’s sad when referees change the outcome of a game.

  10. Is there anything more tiring than Viking fans whining about refs?! The first hands to the face was legit. Happened at the very end when Flowers hand slid up and caught the earpiece of Bahks helmet. It was only visible on one replay. Weak but a penalty by definition. Second one was an absolute garbage call and not the way I’d like my team to win. Packers should’ve been forced into a fg and Detroit should’ve had some time to come back.

  11. Seriously .

    Patricia needs eat the fine.

    Head to the podium and say “ this is incompetence – this officiating is unacceptable in a billion dollar organization. My team and the fans of Michigan were robbed on multiple plays . I will not tolerate this any longer.”

    And walk off

  12. Refs are watching that cross punch from Flowers that kept hitting the Tackle’s head-it’s part of his initial move. Replays are showing it after. Either way it’s not called very often and it’s pretty surprising to see it called there.

  13. Any Vikings, Bears, and Lions fan will tell you that when you go into Lambeau, you have to beat the Packers and the Refs. Unbelievable. Pretty bold considering there is instant replay.

  14. it’s been the gb way for a long long time.

    I like how you word it as if GB is somehow behind it all. You want them to turn down the bs penalties?

  15. Reminds me of the stupid Diggs td reversal. The pack are frauds. Not 5-1 team. Officiating matters and the lions got hosed big time.

    Sure. Or the refs turn down a free meal at the gb AppleBee’s.

  17. I am not a conspiracy guy normally but you have to wonder why those flags came out. NFL needs to fix this crap as it cost a good team a win and cheapens the product
