Green Bay, Vis. – The Atlanta Falcons have two of their top receivers available for Monday night’s game at Green Bay, while Packer Your top two will be without boundaries.
Atlanta’s Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley were active when they were listed as suspects. Jones missed a 30-26 loss to Chicago with a hamstring injury last week. Ridley is also dealing with a hamstring injury.
Green Bay’s Devant Adams will miss the second straight game with a hamstring injury. The Packers (4-0) will also not have Ellen Lazard, who hurt her core in a 37-30 win in New Orleans and was placed on injured reserve on Saturday.
Injured reserve position means Lazarus must lose at least three games.
Adams practiced on a limited basis all week.
Adams tweeted Monday morning that he was not playing and said: “I did everything I needed to do and I proved I was ready but I guess I don’t know my body and others.” Adams deleted the tweet about half an hour later.
Packer defender Kenny Clarke (Crane), outer linebacker Ration Gary (ankle) and finally Mercedes Lewis (knee) will also be missing. Other inactive packers include quarterback Jordan Love and defensive back Perry Nickerson.
Clarke is missing a third straight game. Packer Cornerback Jair Alexander (hand / knee) and center Corey Linsley (Green) are both active after being listed as suspects.
In addition to Adams or Lazard, the active broadcasters of Green Bay are Marquez Waldz-Scantling, Darius Shepherd, Malik Taylor and Reggie Bagelton. This does not include Tyler Irwin, a running back who can also play a wide receiver.
Shepherd, Taylor and Bagelton combined for a career NFL catch. Bagelton, who made 102 catches for the Canadian Football League’s Calgary Stampede last year, was dropped from the practice team on Monday.
Although the Falcons (0-4) receiving cores are healthier than Green Bay, they have many more injuries. They will miss kickers Yangho Ku (twins), Ricardon Allen (elbows) and Keenu Neil (hamstring) and defender Tak McKinley (Green). Other disqualified Atlanta players include offensive tackle John Vettel and defensive tackle Dedrin Senat.
The Falcons selected first-round draft pick AJ Terrell from the practice team to the elevated corridor as the Cokeid-19 from the practice team. He also raised safety Jamal Carter and kicker Elliott Fur from the practice team.
