Davante Adams tweeted and deleted he wasn’t playing Monday night. He’s not.

The star receiver is among the team’s inactives.

Adams (hamstring) went through limited practices all week and was questionable after not playing last week because of his injury.

Defensive tackle Kenny Clark (groin) also is out again this week despite being limited in practice all week. He played only 15 snaps in the season opener before his injury.

The Packers’ other inactives are quarterback Jordan Love, defensive back Parry Nickerson, linebacker Rashan Gary (ankle) and tight end Marcedes Lewis (knee).

Outside linebacker Za'Darius Smith (ankle), cornerback Jaire Alexander (hand/knee), center Corey Linsley (groin), tight end Josiah Deguara (ankle), running back Tyler Ervin (wrist) and punter JK Scott (illness) all are dressed.

The Falcons will have their star receivers Calvin Ridley (ankle) and Julio Jones (hamstring). Both were questionable. Jones missed the Week Four game with his injury.

Their inactives are kicker Younghoe Koo (right groin), safety Keanu Neal (hamstring), safety Ricardo Allen (elbow), defensive end Takk McKinley (groin), defensive tackle Deadrin Senat, offensive guard John Wetzel and running back Qadree Ollison.

  1. Packers have to have the MOST conservative medical staff in the NFL. Right or wrong they always are on the safe side no matter what.

  2. Julio is playing with a hammy. Adams is not. Who wants to win ? Falcons.

    The Packers have some soft players on that team. Ray Nichke played half a season with a torn ACL back in the 60s. Players today are very soft. I guess it doesn’t matter if they play, they still get paid.

  3. Agreed Tae just wants to go back to Cali and is just collecting a check from us. What’s next a pinky injury?

  4. Who wants to win a Super Bowl more? Julio plays and leaves due to aggravating his hammy. Adams sits out and gets an extra couple of weeks to heal so he’s really ready when the Packers will need him the most. The Falcons’ desperation to win their first game led them to start someone who wasn’t ready and now probably won’t be ready for their next game either, and all for nothing.

    Julio may now miss a few more weeks.

    Adams should be back after the bye (this week).

    The Packers seemed to do okay.
