Packers All-Pro WR Davante Adams off COVID-19 list ahead of Chiefs game

The Green Bay Packers were without multiple noteworthy weapons for last week’s “Thursday Night Football” game against the Arizona Cardinals but nevertheless notched a 24-21 victory, and they already know that star quarterback and reigning Most Valuable Player Aaron Rodgers won’t be available for Sunday’s matchup at the Kansas City Chiefs due to what’s quickly becoming the most controversial positive COVID-19 test result of the season. 

Backup signal-caller Jordan Love is on track to make his first NFL start in Kansas City and received some good news ahead of the weekend. 

Per Kevin Patra of the league’s website, Green Bay All-Pro wide receiver Davante Adams is off the reserve/COVID-19 list, along with defensive coordinator Joe Barry, after both missed the win in Arizona. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters Adams is back in the building but hasn’t yet been cleared to play against the Chiefs. LaFleur is, however, “hopeful” his WR1 will be on the field Sunday.

Per ESPN stats, Adams sits fourth in the NFL with 744 receiving yards and third with 52 catches. He also has three touchdown grabs. 

Rodgers, meanwhile, can’t clear COVID-19 protocols by Sunday because he’s unvaccinated and has since been accused by a handful of outlets of violating league health and safety protocols on multiple occasions. The NFL could fine or even suspend him if he’s found guilty. 

Rodgers’ status for the Week 10 clash against the Seattle Seahawks on Nov. 14 is up in the air.
