Receiver Davante Adams hasn’t practiced this week after re-injuring his ankle early in the Green Bay Packers’ Monday night game.
It now seems pretty certain that the injury will keep him sidelined when the Packers face the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.
Coach Mike McCarthy said Adams’ chances of playing are slight, this morning.
“He’s going to have get out and jump around tomorrow, jump through some hoops,” McCarthy said.
The Packers fly to San Francisco today and have their final practice of the week on Saturday.
Now, on the surface, the Packers will be without their No. 2 receiver. In reality, that matters little.
Adams was supposed to be the Packers breakout star this year and, to date, that hasn’t happened.
Adams has nine catches for 92 yards and no touchdowns through three games.
He’s been outperformed by old man James Jones (12, 219, 4) and rookie Ty Montgomery has done just about as much (6, 51, 1).
With Adams sidelined, expect more of Montgomery and maybe the Packers will even mix Jeff Janis in on offense.
Good, the more they do it the hard way, the faster the two most inexperienced receivers will see the field and develop. I’m not willing to see the Packers throw away another year just because they don’t wanna have to go through the growing pains of developing their young players on the field. Screw that. KEEP PLAYING TY AND ESPECIALLY JEFF UNTIL THEY’RE READY MIKE!!!
Rodgers probably has the best deep ball in the game. I have noted that element of the offense is totally lacking without Jordy in there. )Now in a way, that’s good for the defense because they get more rest.) If the game is a blowout, I say put in a guy like Janis and let him take the top off the defense and stretch the field. Give other teams another element to worry about while getting valuable reps to a guy like Janis. If you can do that, it opens up everything else.
Jeff Janis, Jeff Janis, Jeff Janis… More Jeff Janis!
Everybody wants Janis. Let’s have it. When we’re up by 2 TD’s throw some bombs to Janis to put a fork in Niners.
