Davante Adams didn’t clear COVID protocols, will not play Thursday

Packers wide receiver Davante Adams didn’t travel with the team to Arizona on Wednesday and he won’t be making his way there on Thursday either.

There was a small chance that Adams would be able to come off the COVID-19 reserve list in time to play in Thursday night’s game against the Cardinals by having two negative tests taken 24 hours apart, but Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that did not happen. Adams will miss the game as a result.

Wide receiver Allen Lazard is also going to miss the game while on the COVID list. Randall Cobb, Amari Rodgers, Equanimeous St. Brown, and Malik Taylor are the receivers on the 53-man roster and Marquez Valdes-Scantling could come off injured reserve ahead of the game.

The Packers have gone 6-0 without Adams over the last two seasons and adding another win to that total would leave the Cardinals with their first loss of the year.

  1. Expect to see the Packers employ a lot of 12 and 22 formations. They have better running backs and tight ends than receivers with their top three WRs out. MLF may even try a few 13 formations that were so effective against the Steelers if MVS plays.

  2. So if this game was on Sunday Adams would be in the lineup another reason to get rid of Thursday games.

  3. The depth of the Packer receivers may surprise some people. There is some talent on that squad, but not household names. Besides, if Rodgers gets hot he can make just about anybody look like an All-Pro. My concern is the defense. They could not stop the WFT offense last week. The game was much closer than the score. The Packers won because WFT shot themselves in the foot too many times, but they had no problem moving the ball up and down the field all afternoon.

  4. My concern is the defense. They could not stop the WFT offense last week. The game was much closer than the score.

    ——————————————————

    They only gave up 10 points. How is that not stopping the WFT offense??

  5. They said yesteday in the news Adams did not make the trip so ya, I guess he isnt playing.
    They will get blown out even if he did play. Ariz will expose the Packers d as slow, immobal and the worst tacklers in football. Game wont be close.

  6. The Redskins went up and down the field against the Packers last week for nearly 500 yards…

    Then they imploded near the end zone, including deciding to slide short of an easy walk on TD

    Ya I agree, this game could have easy gone the other way with a couple of breaks Wash could have won. They made the pack look foolish at times.

  8. These Thursday games are ridiculous.

    Can we put an asterisk on Thursday games wins and loses so that at the end of the year they are not counted the same as Sunday or Monday night games?

  9. Hopefully he will get a nice rest and 10 days off to boot. Lazard also will get a rest and didnt make the trip either so the covid bros will be ready to go when football resumes in 10 days after bye week
