After being forced to miss some time last week with an ankle injury, second-year Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams has now been listed as ‘questionable’ to play in the Packers’ Monday night game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
According to a report from ESPN.com, Davante Adams doesn’t believe his ankle injury is really an ‘injury’ at all. He is able to run at full speed, but reactionary type moves do cause some discomfort. It’s a relief for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers offense, and it’s expected that Adams should be just fine to play in the game against the Chiefs on Monday night.
As long as Adams is ready to play, the Packers should be at full strength in their aerial attack. Adams is officially listed as probable, and could find success against a Chiefs secondary that has given up production through the air over the past two weeks. Should Adams sit out, James Jones and Ty Montgomery would see expanded roles, while Aaron Rodgers could lean a little more heavily on number one option, Randall Cobb.
Adams has had an extra full day to recover so it sounds like he’ll be fine for his MNF contest. It’s a small sample size, but Kansas City has given up some sick numbers to opposing wide receivers, entering week three dead last against the position in terms of fantasy points allowed. That’s good news for Adams, who has been quiet through the first two weeks, but still has a role (9 receptions). With how good Aaron Rodgers and the Packers have been at home over the past year, a healthy Adams could be in for a big night. Keep him in your lineups.
