Packers Hope Young Receivers Are Ready for the Big Stage

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will reportedly play on Sunday when the Packers take on the Detroit Lions. Although not as unlikely as Crosby's performance Sunday, we wouldn't count on it. Packers head coach Mike McCarthy sent Crosby out to connect on a 41-yarder with less than 10 seconds remaining, perhaps a chance to rebuild some confidence.

Randall Cobb is still sidelined with a hamstring injury. Veteran passer Aaron Rodgers completed 22-of-40 passes for 298 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

"Geronimo Allison is still in concussion protocol after taking a blow in Sunday's win over Buffalo". Both of these teams have been moving the ball at a similar pace, with Detroit having outgained Green Bay by -37 yards. None other than rookie fifth-round pick Marquez Valdes-Scantling out of South Florida.

Adams, who had to exit Wednesday's practice after injuring his calf, will attempt to practice Saturday, coach Mike McCarthy said, per multiple media outlets. Crosby's five combined missed kicks are believed to be the most in a game since at least 1950.

Cook injured his hamstring in overtime against Green Bay on September 16. You have to be able to play through injuries in games, play through injuries in practice, play through injuries that you're able to prepare for. He said on Monday that his hamstring continues to bother him.


That's not the case, although we don't know exactly how the Ravens will accommodate the continuation of the streak.

It's hard to understand why the Packers don't do more to provide opportunities in the passing game for the running backs, especially as so many modern offenses in the National Football League lean on the position to create easy yards through the air week after week. He started all 12 games in which he played last season, and Marlon Humphrey has been the starter at corner opposite Carr this season. CB Teez Tabor (groin) and CB Jamal Agnew (knee) also left the game with injuries.

Of the three rookies, Moore entered training camp as the front-runner to be the team's No. 4 receiver.

"It's a step forward, definitely", McCarthy said. "I think we all feel the same way when you go out there and you see opportunities and sometimes emotion pushes forward. We've just got to find ways to get it done earlier in the game, then we don't have to worry about trying to be heroes at the end".
