Packers downgrade Davante Adams, Morgan Burnett to doubtful


SAN JOSE, Calif. – The bigger surprise was that Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams and safety Morgan Burnett were listed as questionable to begin with, not that they were downgraded to doubtful a day before Sunday's game at the San Francisco 49ers.

The moves were made after the Packers practiced on Saturday at San Jose State University.

It didn’t look good for Adams on Friday morning, when coach Mike McCarthy said he had only a “slight” chance to play. Several hours later, he was listed as questionable on the full injury report.

Adams was seen in a walking boot in the locker room on Wednesday, but he said he does not have the dreaded high ankle sprain. He reinjured his left ankle three plays into Monday’s victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

If Burnett doesn’t play against the 49ers, it will be the third time in four games he will be out with a calf injury.
