Despite practicing this week, it appears Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams won’t be playing this week.
#Packers WR Davante Adams (sprained ankle) is improving, but he's not expected to play today, source said. Should be back post-bye

This will be the third game in a row Adams has missed. That’s a blow to an offense that has struggled to throw the football without him.
The Packers offense has scored just 17 points in each of the past two games. While that’s fine for the Buffalo Bills or New York Jets, this is supposed to be one of the highest-scoring offenses in the league.
The St. Louis Rams effectively limited Aaron Rodgers and company by keying on Randall Cobb. The other receivers failed to get open consistently and the Packers’ passing game was ineffective.
Their two scoring plays against the Rams were on a blown coverage (Ty Montgomery) and when a cornerback fell down (James Jones).
Fortunately for the Packers, the Chargers defense isn’t as good as the Rams.
