Earlier today, Green Bay Packers fans learned that rookie wide receiver Ty Montgomery sat out throughout all of the team's Thursday practice. This afternoon when the injury report was released, we learned that another receiver joined him on the injury report - this time it's Davante Adams, who showed up limited with a foot injury.
If both of those players are unable to play on Sunday, that would leave the Packers somewhat shorthanded at wide receiver, with just four players active. Randall Cobb and James Jones would of course man the starting jobs, but that would leave Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis to pick up the slack from Adams' absence. The other option would be for Green Bay to play more two-wide sets with two tight ends or a tight end and a fullback, but that would go against Mike McCarthy's preference for a three-wide formation.
One positive development on Thursday was that defensive end Mike Daniels was taken off the injury report after being listed as limited on Wednesday with a hamstring issue.
Here's the full list of players on Thursday's injury report.

On the negative side, safety Nate Allen was limited on Wednesday but did not participate today.
