Davante Adams deletes tweet about being out on Monday

In a tweet on Monday morning, Packers wide receiver Davante Adams said that he would not be playing against the Falcons on Monday night.

Adams being out wouldn’t qualify as a shock as he was listed as questionable with a hamstring injury and said last week that he wouldn’t play unless he felt 100 percent. What was surprising was that Adams wrote that he felt he’s “done everything I need to do” to show he can play “but I guess I don’t know my body as well as others.”

That tweet has now been deleted. There’s been no followup from Adams about whether the tone of the tweet or the substance was the reason for taking it down. If it’s the latter, we may not be certain about his status until close to kickoff at Lambeau Field.

Whatever happens with Adams, the Packers will definitely be without Allen Lazard at wideout as he’s recovering from core muscle surgery.

  1. Trap game tonight for my Packers. Already took Atlanta and the points. That is best I can do to guarantee a Packer victory.

  2. It’s pretty obvious it was a shot at the notoriously conservative medical team on the Packers staff. Sounds like Adams thinks he’s good to go and the docs won’t give him the green light.

  3. Aaron Jones and Tyler Ervin lining up at receiver with Williams and Dillon at RB.

  4. If he’s not 100% he shouldn’t play. They’ll likely win without him, and this is going to be a long season. The Packers will need him 100% in the playoffs, and that’s where the Packers are going.

  5. I’m just glad the Green Bay medical staff is smart enough not to let a minor tweak become a season ending injury.

  6. He’s a competitor and wants to play. I assume the Packers will have something the Falcons haven’t seen for tonight.

  7. passive aggressive comments never turn out well for me, just ask my wife…..guess Davante is experiencing the same 🙂

  8. So the Falcons are going to lay dow? I don’t believe it for a minute. The Falcons are professionals and get paid too. The Pack needs Adams and if he can play he’ll play. My gawd, it’s not as though the Pack’s defense has stopped anybody.

    Go Pack. Hope I’m wrong.

  9. This presents an opportunity for new blood to add to the success of the Packers’ offense. Darrius Shepherd, Sternberger and Deguara, AJ Dillon. Come November, D-coordinators will be wondering how the hell to defend this offense and all it’s weapons. And with the counters MLF will have up it’s sleeve, if the D can even be in the top half of football, watch out.

  10. Great job letting the opposition know you’re not playing tonight like 10 hours before kick off. Way to go Einstein SMDH

    What a dysfunctional franchise. Adams should demand a trade.


    Pull a Diggs, you mean.

    Jefferson has played just as well as Diggs so far its been a win/win for both teams.

    Athletes sometimes are their own worst enemy when it comes to getting back on the field. Case and point Julio Jones last night. With the Falcons 0-3 and the season on the line the medical staff cleared him and he more than likely re-injured his hammy.

    The Packers medical staff on the other hand played it cautiously, the right move. Adams was frustrated as we all seen the Tweet but they didn’t need him last night. No shade on Davante, its just that a game plan was put into place by the coaching staff this past week utilizing all their personnel in motion,different formations, different play calling and it worked and was executed flawlessly. Plus Adams gets 2 more weeks of rest with the impending bye.

    I hate the Packers and their narcissistic bandwagon fan base like I hate liver onions. ons. I do however, respect what the coaching staff did in preparation for that game and the execution the team did to make it happen.
