Davante Adams remains out of practice; Aaron Rodgers limited

Packers receiver Davante Adams warmed up with teammates for the first time since injuring his toe in Week Four against the Eagles. Adams, though, remained a non-participant in practice Wednesday.

Instead, he returned inside with athletic trainer Bryan Engel when his teammates began going through individual drills.

Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Adams’ status for this week could go right up to game time.

“I want him to come back when he feels healthy,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said, via video from Keith Jenkins of the Associated Press. “He’s going to push himself, and he has an extremely high pain tolerance, so I wouldn’t ever rule him out because if you start doing that you might piss him off even more to get out there. Maybe you should start ruling him out a little bit before he rules himself out. Excited to get him back, but I want him to be healthy first and foremost. That’s a tough injury to deal with, and you’ve seen other top receivers who’ve had similar injuries and have been inactive most of the season. I’d love for him to get as healthy as possible before he comes back.”

Offensive tackle Bryan Bulaga (rest), tight end Jimmy Graham (ankle), tight end Marcedes Lewis (rest), Rodgers (knee) and cornerback Tramon Williams (knee) were limited.

  1. I would sure like to see Adams back soon. It just isn’t the same without him. Get well soon please!

  2. Darnell Savage practiced full on Wednesday. Bobby Tonyan did as well. Good news!

    LaFleur says it could go right up to a game time decision with Davante. I guess we will find out. It was a good/positive sign that Tae was out there Wednesday stretching with the team for the beginning of practice. Doctors and the training staff have to clear a player for things. It’s a process and all signs are positive so far.


  3. The Packer defense is doing their part and getting it done. In the red zone, not only do they lead the NFL in takeaways (four) and red zone interceptions (three), but they’re second in opposing passer rating inside the 20-yard line (62.5).

  4. Adams being out has helped the Packers. It’s weird to think, but Rodgers has built incredible trust with more receivers and backs, so he’ll be able to spread the ball around more when Adams returns.

    Just think… the offense was flat out bad and they still put up 21 points against the Vikings defense in 16 minutes. I’d hate to think how badly they’ll destroy that second tier team the next time the teams meet.

    Then again, the Vikings refs always have their hand in the outcome. The Vikings are able to tackle receivers and not get pass interference calls, and if anyone looks funny at vikings receivers, it’s an automatic first down. Plus, that garbage o-line holds on every play and hardly ever gets called.

    If the game is called fairly, the Packers will win by 4 TDs.

  5. You will need Adams, regardless of whether or not Mahomes plays, they have several ways to carve up a defense!

    Adams doesn’t play on defense.

    Also, the Packers scored 6 TDs vs the Raiders defense, which is incredibly similar to the Chiefs defense. You think Matt Moore will score 6 TDs?

  7. Rodgers has been limited too this year, i.e age, health, not having quality WRs to throw to have all been part of his decline. Of course these limitations have been masked by Green Bay having by far the most beneficiary yards in the NFL and one of the least against. Their margin of difference is staggeringly so far ahead of the next team. Its easy to mask limitations when your entire OL never holds once for an entire games yet your O gets new sets of downs from phantom penalties often. Look’em up if you don’t believe me

  8. The conditioning of World Class teams is telling as the Vikings are remarkably healthy…other teams really don’t know how to condition themselves and stay healthy….
