Rodgers and King taken off of Packers injury list

Rodgers and King taken off of Packers injury list

The Detroit Lions dreaded NFC North rival, the Green Bay Packers, made their way to Ford Field for Sunday's early must-win matchup for the home team. The No. 1 receiver left Wednesday's practice with a calf injury. Crosby jogged onto the field, but the Packers chose to go for it. Rodgers scrambled for the first down, setting up Green Bay's second touchdown. That's now two missed practices for Adams, which isn't a good sign for his availability on Sunday against the Lions.

Geronimo Allison suffered a concussion last week and hasn't practiced this week, either.

"He's super competitive", McCarthy said Wednesday. Valdes-Scantling (two grabs for 41 yards) is the only other wideout on the roster with a reception, and tight end Jimmy Graham (one) is the only other player with a receiving touchdown. "You guys don't see the practices, but J'Mon's been making a lot plays in practice and improving and same with Eq". The Packers scored a touchdown on their first drive of the second half, but successfully went for 2 to make it 24-8.

His final miss came in the fourth quarter, when the Packers opted to try a 56-yard field goal on fourth-and-15 from the Lions' 38-yard line rather than try and convert the play. But at some point, this pattern of struggling and bouncing back is going to get broken. Now the three rookies may go from being criticized in practice to playing very significant roles in an important game against a division rival. "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". If something was to happen and I re-injure the same hamstring, it's going to put me out for double the time.

"I always prepare like I'm going to be the No. 1 receiver", Valdes-Scantling said. And, this is, I look back, I'm thinking in my childhood, you know high school, this is definitely a lot worse.

"This is an important day", coach Mike McCarthy said about Friday, a recovery-and-rehabilitation day under the team's weekly format.

The Lions pass defense now ranks second in the league in yards allowed per game. Shortly thereafter, Lion rookie Teez Tabor found himself hit with a penalty of his own that gave Green Bay an automatic first down. A fifth-round pick past year, he spent all of his rookie season on the practice squad. Cornerback Kevin King, who missed the last two games with a groin injury, was full participation all week and was removed from the injury report.
