Packers Week 8 Injury Report: Adams and Savage return to practice Wednesday

New, comments

Davante Adams and Darnell Savage returned to practice on Wednesday, but their statuses for Sunday are still uncertain.

Coming off a dominating win against the Raiders on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers are pretty banged up on both sides of the ball, which lead to a lighter practice on Wednesday to give some players a rest. Matt LaFleur said that the team held “three 20-minute walkthrough periods, a 20-minute individual period, and then special teams.” With the Packers facing the Chiefs on Sunday, it is important that they are ready mentally and physically whether or not Patrick Mahomes plays.

Wednesday’s practice saw the return of three key players in some form. Darnell Savage, Jr. returned to practice for the first time since hurting his ankle, and Davante Adams was stretching with the team for the first time since the Eagles game. Savage looked good defending routes, while Davante Adams went to the locker room after stretching to try on different cleats. There was no indication whether Adams will play or not, and it seems he will be a game time decision depending on how he is feeling.

Another key player who returned to practice was tight end Robert Tonyan, who has missed the last two games due to a hip injury. The play from the tight ends has been up and down all season, and it is expected that Tonyan will be a big part of the offense once he is 100%.

Aaron Rodgers, Jimmy Graham, Bryan Bulaga and Tramon Williams all got a veteran rest day, which was well earned. Although Rodgers has been on the injury report the last few weeks with a knee injury, it does not seem to be serious at all. Overall, most of the team looks healthy and participated in the limited practice.

The full injury report is below.
