GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Green Bay Packers will reportedly be without Davante Adams for Thursday’s game against the Arizona Cardinals.

According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Adams will not clear COVID-19 protocols and is out for Thursday’s game.

Adams will not be the only team member missing the game, as Joe Barry is also out due to COVID. Adam Lazard is also out for the game, so the Packers are missing two of their top wide receivers.

Local 5 will update this story if more information is released.

ORIGINAL: Packers wide receiver Davante Adams placed on COVID-19/reserve list

MONDAY 10/25/2021 3:13 p.m.

GREEN BAY, Wis. (WFRV) – The Green Bay Packers have placed their star wide receiver, Davante Adams, on the COVID-19/reserve list.

Being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list is for a player who either tests positive for COVID-19 or who has been in close contact with an infected person or persons. This is coming just hours after the Packers Defensive Coordinator Joe Barry tested positive for COVID-19. The team issued a press release following the transaction.

To be able to play in Thursday’s game, Adams’ must test negative two days in a row. It is unclear if he has tested positive or is just a close contact.
