The Green Bay Packers may be without their top three receivers on Sunday, because none of the three was expected to practice on Thursday.

Adams, who had to exit Wednesday's practice after injuring his calf, will attempt to practice Saturday, coach Mike McCarthy said, per multiple media outlets.

The Detroit Lions took advantage of some mistakes they forced Green Bay to make and were fortunate some breaks simply went their way. That's now two missed practices for Adams, which isn't a good sign for his availability on Sunday against the Lions. Also questionable is Geronimo Allison, who suffered a concussion during last week's victory over Buffalo and has not practiced this week.

"This is how the week goes sometimes", McCarthy said. Brown and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. The defense was playing well in the first half, but the offense wasn't doing them any favors. He said on Monday that his hamstring continues to bother him. "But I told those guys before Week 1, 'You're all going to get an opportunity at some point".

The Lions, who won their third straight against the Packers for the first time since the 1990-91 seasons, dominated field position in the first half.

"Mike and I talk all the time", Rodgers said. "It's a long season and we're on Game 5, but at the same time, it's a short season, and we're on Game 5. This was something I've never been a part of before and I hope to never be a part of it again". "So, it's trying to be smart on both sides of it, which I struggle with because I play through emotion". His only make was a meaningless 41-yarder with seven seconds remaining. However, the Packers quarterback says he and the rest of the team still have faith in Crosby despite his disastrous outing. And, this is, I look back, I'm thinking in my childhood, you know high school, this is definitely a lot worse.

"I always prepare like I'm going to be the No. 1 receiver", Valdes-Scantling said.

Rodgers was adamant in defending his teammate of 12 seasons after the game. The Packers franchise quarterback will nearly certainly focus more on tight end Jimmy Graham and former receiver Ty Montgomery if he is without one or more of his most reliable targets.

A second-round pick by the Patriots in 2016, he was released at the end of training camp and signed by the Baltimore Ravens as a practice squad player.
