Final injury report: The Packers have removed Adams from the final injury report and he is good to go for Week 11.
Friday late PM update: Head coach Matt LaFleur told the media, “[Adams] should be good to go” for Sunday, per Matt Schneidman.
Friday early PM update: Adams returned to practice on Friday. ESPN’s Rob Demovsky provides us with some optimistic video:
So maybe Davante Adams will play Sunday after all. From practice just now. pic.twitter.com/ErBnUa5wro— Rob Demovsky (@RobDemovsky) November 20, 2020
Thursday PM update: Davante Adams was limited in practice on Wednesday, but was listed as not practicing on Thursday, per Zach Kruse. The downgrade is concerning, but they could just be resting him to test the ankle on Friday. It’s hard to know, but we’ll need to prepare for him missing this game against the Colts.
Thursday early PM update: The Packers returned to practice and Adams remained inside when the team came outside, per Matt Schneidman. It’s unclear what this means for his Sunday status, but it would not be surprising to see him listed as questionable on Friday’s final injury report.
Green Bay Packers star wide receiver Davante Adams was forced from last week’s game with an ankle injury, but he did return and even scored a touchdown after suffering the injury. To start this week, Adams was limited with the injury, per the Packers injury report.
Adams said, “It’s definitely not a 9-1-1, but it’s something we had to pay attention to for sure,” per ESPN’s Rob Demovsky. He didn’t want to promise that he’d play against the Colts, but did say that was the plan.
Adams also went into how the Packers medical staff views soft tissue injuries, like the hamstring injury that recently kept him out versus his ankle injury:
Davante Adams says #Packers medical staff was more receptive to his opinion on whether he could play or not through his ankle injury than, say, a hamstring. Ankle easier to gut through, soft-tissue injuries not so much. Adams says "the idea" is to play Sunday but no guarantees.— Ryan Wood (@ByRyanWood) November 18, 2020
When Packers players are injured, the best guess is to always expect one-more week out than you might usually think. But since Adams was able to play through the injury last week, he has a good chance of playing this week.
