Crosby misses four field goals as the Packers fall to the Lions

Green Bay Packers: 5 players in the spotlight vs the Detroit Lions Green Bay Packers: 3 Big takeaways from loss vs. Lions in Week 5

Although the Pro Bowl receiver was dealing with a calf injury of his own, Adams fully meant to be on the field Sunday to lead Green Bay's young receiving corps into battle with Detroit.

He lost a pair of fumbles on strip sacks and started slowly on a day when he was without two of his three starting receivers. He did not participate in practice on either Wednesday or Thursday as the Packers prepared for their game against the Lions.

McCarthy also said "there's hope" that Geronimo Allison would be available Sunday, even though he remains in the National Football League concussion protocol. You have to be able to play through injuries in games, play through injuries in practice, play through injuries that you're able to prepare for.

The calf injury popped up on Thursday's injury report after Adams seemingly suffered it in practice on Wednesday.

Coincidentally, his 12-yard touchdown reception from quarterback Aaron Rodgers also marked the 10th consecutive road game in which Adams has scored.

Their absences left Rodgers with three rookies - fifth-rounder Marquez Valdes-Scantling, fourth-rounder J'Mon Moore and sixth-rounder Equanimeous St. Brown. Valdes-Scantling has the only two catches from that group. The game will be the first he has missed since 2016. He has two receptions for 41 yards including a 38-yard grab against the Bills last Sunday. Only rookie receivers remained at work. But as Aaron Rodgers has always said, the physical mistakes don't bother him almost as much as the mental ones.

Why did Conor McGregor NOT speak after Khabib fight?
For Khabib it wasn't fight promotion, it was really personal. "I don't understand how people can talk about I jump on the cage". UFC President Dana White said after the fight that three of Khabib's coaching team were arrested and taken to jail.

That was back in early August. If used correctly, they can create easy yards and easy plays in the passing game. That type of game has never happened to me.

Cobb acknowledged the progress the trio has made but explained that playing in a regular season game is a big jump from practice.

"They're getting better", Rodgers said. "Those opportunities are going to come and it's all about just them being ready for them".

"Mentally, as a defense, I think we stuck in there", Williams said.

"But I told those guys before Week 1, 'You're all going to get an opportunity at some point". Darrius Slay is their top cover corner.

Davante Adams understood his importance to the Packers' offense with Randall Cobb nursing a hamstring injury and Geronimo Allison in the concussion protocol. It will be a challenge for the entire offense, not just the inexperience receivers.
