Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he expects both receiver Davante Adams and safety Morgan Burnett to play this week, on Monday.
“I think both Morgan (Burnett) and Davante having a chance to program some the San Diego week. With another week off, they should feel good.”
Burnett has played in just one game this season — week 2 vs. Seattle. Micah Hyde has filled in while Burnett has been nursing a calf injury.
Adams has played in three game because of a sprained ankle, but really only two. He left early in the Kansas City game after aggravating the injury and hasn’t played since.
Even though Adams’ stats are modest — nine catches for 92 yards — the Packers offense hasn’t been the same without him.
To put it simply, no one else can seem to get open on a regular basis without Adams in the lineup.
So, what are we missing here?
No word on him and his inflamed nut sack.
