Draft Scout News
11/15/15 - WR Davante Adams caught 10 passes for 79 yards but was targeted a whopping 21 times. That is the third-most passes to a player this season, behind the 23 to Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown vs. Oakland on Nov. 8 and the 22 to Buffalo's DeAndre Hopkins vs. Houston on Oct. 4. Adams was the target on the two-point play that could have tied the game at 18, but it was knocked away by CB Crezdon Butler. "We had the right play," QB Aaron Rodgers said. "We had empty pressure, one-on-one, and I didn't see the end of it. I got knocked down. But we need to convert that one."
11/03/15 - WR Davante Adams (ankle) returned to game action Sunday night. Adams had missed the previous three games because of an aggravated sprained ankle. He made the start in the loss to the Broncos but was targeted only two times and had one catch for eight yards.
10/29/15 - WR Davante Adams (ankle) practiced Thursday in limited fashion for the second straight day. The young playmaker is hopeful about returning to action Sunday night at Denver after missing the last three games because of a reinjured left ankle sprain.
10/26/15 - WR Davante Adams returned to practice on a limited basis before the Packers' last game, a close victory over the San Diego Chargers on Oct. 18. He's hopeful that staying in Green Bay during the bye week for treatment and rehab work pays off by being on the field Sunday against the Broncos.
"There's a little soreness (in the ankle) with different (movements)," Adams said. "It kind of depends on plant to plant; it's not always the same. I just want to get it to where I'm not thinking about it."
Coach Mike McCarthy is keeping an open mind to how effective Adams can be back in game action, if indeed this weekend marks his return.
"You want to have all of your weapons, and Davante, like I said all through training camp, I thought he clearly was one of the young players that jumped out, and you could see it in the (spring) OTAs," McCarthy said. "So, yeah, it will be great to have him back out there."
10/21/15 - The Packers are well on their way to winning a fifth straight NFC North title and generally considered the team to beat in the NFC this season.
Yet, as Green Bay head coach Mike McCarthy gave players a full week to rest on their laurels thus far for the team's Week 7 bye, his team's perfect 6-0 start hasn't been without imperfections.
"We've had six of them this year, (and) they've been all different types of wins," quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. "We've had pretty ones. We've had to grind it out (in other games)."
Their unbeaten record, which has the Packers out in front of the division pack by no fewer than 2 1/2 games, also includes a great escape. That happened Sunday, when Green Bay needed a goal-line stand in the final seconds to ward off the visiting San Diego Chargers 27-20.
As several of the players fled Green Bay on Monday to return home or take a midseason getaway, the consensus opinion that is coursing through the team is twofold. While the Packers have positioned themselves for greater success the remaining three-plus months of the season, including the playoffs, they have underachieved to some extent.
"We've won six in a row, but there's a lot of work to do," veteran receiver James Jones said. "We all know it don't mean (anything) if we can't finish the season off the way we want to do it."
The most pressing concern as the coaches huddled for a few days this week for a self-scout of the pre-bye portion of the season is coming to grips with what has been a peculiar offense of late.
The Packers have scored a touchdown on their first possession the last three games and have scored an aggregate 35 points in the first quarter of those games. However, they have averaged just 23 points per game in the recent stretch and fell short in each of those games of fulfilling what veteran guard T.J. Lang said is a team goal of 28 points.
In fact, Green Bay has scored fewer than 28 points in four of its six games.
"Obviously, this is
