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.
