Packers Practice Injury Report: Davante Adams returns for light Wednesday practice

New, comments

The Packers listed 22 players on the report Wednesday, but everyone was at least a limited participant.

Nearly half of the Green Bay Packers’ 53-man roster — well, it technically has 52 players on it at present — showed up on the team’s first injury report of week nine on Wednesday. A whopping 22 players were on the list, which could explain head coach Matt LaFleur’s decision to simplify practice down to a walkthrough on Wednesday.

Thankfully, every one of those 22 players was at least a limited participant on Wednesday, a good sign for the team’s ability to field a full roster on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The most notable name on the report is wide receiver Davante Adams, who actually ran some routes and caught some passes in practice for the first time since his turf toe injury in week four. Adams did begin running last week, but he did not participate in any drills, instead working in the rehab group. Now that he is starting to work back in practice, the expectation is that he will return to game action sooner rather than later.

Of course, the Packers’ offense has been humming without Adams. The team has earned three NFC Offensive Player of the Week awards in the four games he has missed, two for running back Aaron Jones and one for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. Both of those players appeared on Wednesday’s report as limited as well, though both are expected to play on Sunday.

Ultimately, this lengthy report probably is not a significant concern. Perhaps LaFleur is choosing to be overly cautious with his listing of players on the report — there are several individuals tagged on the report with “full participation” status who do not have any particularly notable injuries. But keep an eye out on Thursday for updated statuses as the team holds its one full practice this week.
