Packers WR Davante Adams clears protocol for Cowboys game
ARLINGTON, Texas - As expected, Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and traveled with the team Saturday for its game Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys, a source said.
That puts Adams on track to play Sunday, just 10 days after he was taken from the field on a stretcher and hospitalized overnight after taking a vicious, helmet-to-helmet hit from Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan.
Adams sustained a concussion but was released from the hospital the next morning and tweeted he was “feeling great” after his discharge. Packers coach Mike McCarthy said he had visited Adams in the hospital and his receiver was in a “rambunctious” mood.
Trevathan initially was suspended for two games by the NFL because of the hit, but that penalty was reduced Tuesday to one game on appeal.
Adams participated in practices on a limited basis with the rehab group this week and was listed as questionable Friday on the injury report.
“Can’t see him not playing,” a source said Tuesday.
It wouldn't be the first time Adams cleared the protocol without missing a game. Last October, he suffered a concussion against the Cowboys but returned four days later for a Thursday night game against the Bears and made a career-high 13 catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns.
