The Green Bay Packers have placed superstar wide receiver Devante Adams on the reserve/COVID-19 list ahead of Green Bay’s critical game against the Arizona Cardinals set to take place on Thursday night.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Adams tested positive for COVID-19, and Adams hasn’t been forced to follow protocols for unvaccinated players which leads one to believe that Adams is vaccinated.
Per protocol, if Adams is vaccinated and is asymptomatic, he would need two negative PCR tests 24 hours apart to play Thursday night.
“Any time that you have any cases, you’re always a little bit concerned about that,” Packers head coach Matt LaFleur said at the time he announced that defensive coordinator Joe Barry would miss Thursday’s game due to COVID-19 rules. “But the majority of our guys are vaccinated, so there’s a little bit different protocol with that. I don’t think in terms of being at close contact with any of our players, I don’t think that’s a real concern of ours right now. But we’re still waiting to hear back from the league before we get clearance on anything.”
Adams currently leads Green Bay in receptions with 52, and in receiving yards with 744.
