Cobb out, Adams and Allison hopeful, for Packers vs Lions


Evan Siegle

On Sunday Detroit take on Green Bay at 1:00 p.m.

Randall Cobb missed practice with his injured hamstring, Geromino Allison sat out in the concussion protocol, and Davante Adams was added to the injury report Wednesday limited by a calf injury.

Adams, who didn't practice on Wednesday or Thursday, said he was optimistic he'd play but wanted to be smart with Cobb and Allison unlikely to go. The team's 22-0 Week 4 win brings them to 2-1-1 on the season heading to Detroit. The game will be the first he has missed since 2016.

The Packers' top receiver looked no worse for wear against the Lions, playing almost every offensive snap and catching nine passes for 140 yards. Five yards. Ten. Twenty, probably more, from the hash mark nearly all the way to the far sideline, where he finally caught up to Aaron Rodgers. "I thought that I was able to do it today". One will be filled by defensive lineman David Irving in his return from a four-game suspension for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, but the team said he didn't make the trip and wouldn't play against the Texans.

Behind those three receivers, the Packers have three rookies - Marquez Valdes-Scantling, J'Mon Moore and Equanimeous St. Adams presently leads the team 28 catches and three touchdowns through four games.

"They stepped up and made plays, especially not having much game action", Adams said.

"I think we've still got some progress to make before I think both sides would be comfortable", Cobb said. "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".

Detroit were close but not close enough last Sunday as they fell 24-26 to Dallas.

There's time for one or more of the starters to get healthy.

There is some concern over the matchup, as the Lions have allowed just 29 receptions for 420 yards and three scores to opposing wideouts.

It was the first of two Rodgers fumbles the Lions recovered in the first half Sunday.
