With a short week ahead, the Packers have now moved into enhanced mitigation COVID protocols. That includes daily testing and required masking for all at the Packers facility, regardless of vaccination status. Adams doesn’t have much time to get off the list, meaning he will likely be out on Thursday night.

In his absence, quarterback Aaron Rodgers will lean on Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and Robert Tonyan in the passing game. Running back Aaron Jones figures to see more opportunities as well, a role he’s accustomed to.

Bad news for Green Bay, good news for Arizona, as the Cardinals will receive a lift on Thursday night. Edge rusher Chandler Jones was activated off the reserve/COVID-19 list today, meaning he will be in the lineup against the Packers. Jones is one of the best in the league at his position, registering five sacks this season.
