Report: Packers won’t make call on WR Adams until just before kickoff
The Green Bay Packers don’t play their Week 3 game until Sunday night, and apparently they plan on taking every one of the extra minutes they can get when it comes to deciding whether star wide receiver Davante Adams can play.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Saturday night that the Packers will allow Adams — who is officially listed as doubtful — to take part in pregame warmups and, if the 27-year-old can go full speed, suit up for the game in New Orleans.
Adams injured his hamstring during the second half of Green Bay’s 42-21 win over Detroit last weekend. He has not practiced at all this past week.
Adams has recorded 17 receptions for 192 receiving yards and two touchdowns this season for the Packers (2-0). The three-time Pro Bowl selection has 448 receptions for 5,386 yards and 46 scores in his six-plus seasons with Green Bay.
Fellow wideouts Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Allen Lazard are expected to see a bigger workload if Adams can’t play on Sunday.
The Packers won all four games last season that Adams missed because of turf toe.
