GREEN BAY – The Packers have removed receiver Davante Adams (ankle), and cornerbacks Kevin King (quadriceps) and Jaire Alexander (concussion) from the injury report. All three are expected to be available for Sunday’s game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Tailgate Party Time
Green Bay has listed five as questionable: receivers Allen Lazard (core), Darrius Shepherd (shoulder) and Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), safety Will Redmond (shoulder) and cornerback Ka’dar Hollman (quadricep).
Running back Tyler Ervin (wrist/ribs) has been ruled out, while defensive lineman Montravius Adams (toe) is doubtful. Neither practiced this week.
After playing through an ankle injury during last Sunday’s 24-20 win over Jacksonville, Davante Adams was a limited participant during Friday’s practice.
“I think he’s made good progress,” said Head Coach Matt LaFleur of Adams. “He should be good to go.”
Alexander sat out last week’s game against the Jaguars with the concussion he sustained in San Francisco. He was a full participant on Thursday and Friday. King is set to return after missing five games.
Lazard was a limited participant this week after being designated to return off injured reserve on Tuesday. If Lazard is given the green light for Sunday, it’ll be his first game since catching six passes for 146 yards and a touchdown in a Week 3 win over New Orleans.
“He’s been making progress but again we’ll see how he’s feeling and hopefully he’ll be able to go,” LaFleur said. “But again, I think it’s going to be more something we’ll figure out on Sunday.”
In addition to Adams, King and Alexander, the Packers removed seven other players from the injury report who are expected to be available: offensive line David Bakhtiari (chest) and Rick Wagner (knee) and Billy Turner (calf), tight ends Robert Tonyan (ankle) and Marcedes Lewis (knee), punter JK Scott (back) and safety Vernon Scott (shoulder).
Indianapolis defensive lineman Denico Autry won’t play Sunday after being placed on the COVID-19/reserve list.
The Colts listed five as questionable: tight ends Jack Doyle (concussion) and Noah Togiai (knee), cornerback Isaiah Rodgers (knee), tackle Braden Smith (thumb) and defensive end Kemoko Turay (ankle). They also removed 12 others from the injury report who are expected to be available.
