Packers receiver Davante Adams is officially doubtful for Sunday’s game against the Saints, with a hamstring injury. Although he wasn’t downgraded to out (which means, as the team has confirmed, he made the trip to New Orleans), the Packers have promoted a receiver from the practice squad.

Darrius Shepherd joins the roster for Sunday night’s game against the Saints.

Joining Shepherd in making the climb from the practice squad are tight end John Lovett and defensive lineman Billy Winn.

The other Packers receivers are Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Allen Lazard, and Malik Taylor. Last week, running back Aaron Jones added 68 receiving yards to a 168-yard rushing performance.

  1. Didn’t one of the Packer rubes cellular performance say

    “Injuries the great equalizer”

    Who dat Nation coming for dat Packer cheese!

  2. Sweet the Packers brought up John, that is a solid move & I Lovett!!

    Horrible jokes aside, Lovett is/was a player a lot of Chiefs fans liked and hoped would contribute last year. He has a good skill set and I will be cheering for him tomorrow.

  3. Without Adams covering the saints #1 receiver, gb is toast.

    Adams covering the Saints #1 receiver?? Dude, he’s a receiver not a DB.

    It was intentional, sorry you can’t understand it stellarperformance = cellularperformance. Most Packer fans just drool on their mustard stained Jordy Nelson jerseys while reminding everyone about 13 world championships. Half of their fan base doesn’t know the difference between and diary cow and a bull. You dont need to know English for that.

  7. Darrius will help Shepherd GB to the win. There’s NOLAmenting the fact that GB will win this game Breesily. Kamara night the Saints will be 1-2. Kenny Clark is groin to anchor that run D like there’s no Demario. Whether Aaron it out by pass or on the ground, the offense will rule the day.

    Kryst am I bored or what,,,,,,?

    I suspect charliewaffles was hoo-rawin’ and he appears to have made a good job of it. Michael Thomas was ruled out well before before the article ever posted.

  9. The Packers will be just fine without Adams. It’ll be Jones, Williams, and Dillon running all over the Saints anyway.
