Though the teams’ official injury report does not come out until Saturday afternoon, one of the biggest mysteries about Monday night’s matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions was solved on Friday afternoon by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
According to Rapoport, Packers No. 1 wide receiver Davante Adams will likely miss Monday’s game with his turf toe injury.
From NFL Now: The #Packers are likely going to be without WR Davante Adams (turf toe) this Monday, but a return looms from an injury that had a timetable of 2-6 weeks. pic.twitter.com/d1BBcGJ07b— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) October 11, 2019
“It doesn’t sound promising for this week, although they do have the extra day, the Monday night game” Rapoport said. “As it was described to me, he at least came into the week thinking he had an outside at this game, but—we’ll see what his status his today—but it doesn’t seem likely. This injury, Tom, was described to me as a 2-6 week injury for turf toe.”
For the second straight day, Adams missed practice on Friday.
While Rapoport left enough ambiguous language to cover himself in case Adams does indeed play, all signs point to the Packers being without their top receiver.
Despite missing last week’s game against the Cowboys, Adams leads the Packers with 25 catches for 378 yards—almost 150 yards more than anyone else on the team.
