Davante Adams doubtful, but still hoping to play tonight

Packers receiver Davante Adams is still hoping to play tonight against the Saints.

Although Adams is still officially listed as doubtful with a hamstring injury, he wants to play and he’ll be given every opportunity to show he can go in pregame warmups, according to multiple reports.

Adams did make the trip to New Orleans, which he wouldn’t have done if there were no chance of him playing, so the Packers are holding out hope.

Adams is the Packers’ leading receiver with 17 catches for 192 yards and two touchdowns this season. He was also the Packers’ leading receiver last season, but the Packers’ offense played very well without him in the four games he missed, which may give them confidence that they don’t need to push him to play tonight in New Orleans.

  1. Smart play would be to rest him. With that said hopefully Saints can give the NFLs “number 1” offense a nice welcome back to reality with a contending team and not some 0-2 teams that would lose in the SEC.

  2. Very slim chance he plays. Packers doctors are very conservative with injuries.

    It would be *GREAT* if he can go, but I have confidence in Lazard and MVS to carry the load at WR if they don’t allow Davante to play.

    We will find out by 6 p.m. cst.

  3. We know that hamstrings can linger, so I trust the Pack to rest him if there is any question. Maybe they could throw to a tight end once in a while, and can Jonesy catch even more out of the backfield? Maybe. Their kick returner is also under utilized, and he is a speed burner. Go Packers.

  5. My Packers don’t need Adams. We’re gonna win the Super Bowl anyways. That video on mental health is so spot on, though. Especially around here.

  6. Look for WR Lazard and TE Tonyan to have a big part of the passing game tonight.
    Another player to watch on offense is Tyler Ervin. They can mix him in on a jet sweep misdirection, or line him up in the slot. Should be a good battle. I’m not underestimating the Saints talent.
