Green Bay Packers WR Davante Adams says he’s banned from Monday night soccer game, deletes tweet


Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams has said in a now deleted tweet that he will not be playing Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.Adams will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury sustained in Green Bay’s Week 2 win over the Detroit Lions.

Adams had been officially listed as questionable after being restricted in practice last week. He said in his tweet that he wanted to play on Monday but was selected.

“Sorry, fans and friends, I won’t be on the pitch tonight. I did everything I had to do and proved that I was ready, but I guess I don’t know my body as well as others. Good luck, my boys. Said in a tweet that was deleted.

The Packers will also be without receiver Allen Lazard, who underwent abdominal muscle surgery last week after becoming Green Bay’s No.1 without Adams.

Adams said last week he wanted to make sure he was 100% before coming back.

“I’m going to make sure I feel normal – like before this happened – before I go out,” Adams said Thursday. “So we do our thing to make sure that’s the case. ”

Last week, Adams worked a few hours before kickoff against the New Orleans Saints before being sent off.

“It was the plan for the whole week to get a good idea of ​​how I was feeling before the game, just to give myself all the time I needed, and I came to the conclusion that I was not still quite ready, ”Adams said last. the week. “It was close. I felt good, but wanted to be as smart as possible, so we decided not to. ”

At least one other Packers player has expressed frustration at being excluded from a game this season. Right tackle Billy Turner, who suffered a knee injury during training camp, was inactive for the game opener, but dressed – and didn’t play – in Week 2 before returning in the lineup in the third week.

“Without discussing my injury, because it’s not something I’m talking about, you have to ask the coaching staff and the medical staff about it,” Turner said. “It wasn’t my decisions. But here we go into week 4, and I’m playing and I’m healthy and that’s all I’m going to say about it. ”
