Packers vs. 49ers inactives: Davante Adams, Morgan Burnett sit

New, comment

Vernon Davis sits out for the 49ers.

For the second straight week, the Green Bay Packers will take the field without starting safety Morgan Burnett, who will sit out with the same calf injury that cost him Week 3. Wideout Davante Adams joins him on the sidelines as he recovers from his ankle injury.

With Adams facing a multi-week absence, the Packers signed wide receiver Jared Abbrederis off their practice squad. Abbrederis, a fifth-round selection in the 2014 draft, is active for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. Though his snap count on offense may be limited, he could also factor in as a returner on special teams.

Meanwhile, the 49ers are without Pro Bowl tight end Vernon Davis. Davis missed all of the team's practices this week, and could remain out past this weekend. Backup running back Mike Davis joins him on the inactive list.

Here are the full inactive lists for both teams:

Packers

  • QB Brett Hundley
  • WR Davante Adams
  • CB Demetri Goodson
  • S Morgan Burnett
  • LB Jake Ryan
  • OL Lane Taylor
  • OL Bryan Bulaga

49ers

  • WR DeAndrew White
  • RB Mike Davis
  • CB Shareece Wright
  • OL Brandon Thomas
  • OL Ian Silberman
  • DL Mike Purcell
  • TE Vernon Davis
