The process of whether or not Packers wide receiver Davante Adams would be on the field tonight against Arizona at times seemed marred by secrecy and uncertainty, even though it seemed apparent to everyone there was very little chance Adams would see any action.
Today, we have confirmation that Adams did not clear the league COVID protocols and will be out tonight.
In other injury news, ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported today Marquez Valdes-Scantling was not activated from injured reserve, with the team preferring to give him extra recovery time with his hamstring. The Cardinals will be without JJ Watt, who’s season appears to be over ahead of expected shoulder surgery. Wide receiver DeAndre Hokpins will test out his own hamstring before game-time, but is expected to play.
Tonight’s game features teams with a combined record of 13-1, the best win rate for a Thursday night football game ever.
