Cobb out, Adams and Allison hopeful, for Packers vs Lions

The Green Bay Packers kicker, who had never missed three field goals in a game despite spending 12 seasons at Lambeau Field, missed four and an extra point in a 31-23 loss to the Detroit Lions.

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.

Cook injured his hamstring in overtime against Green Bay on September 16. Allison was injured in the second half of the Packers' shutout victory over the Buffalo Bills last Sunday.

"They gave up rushers in order to extend plays, and they got some turnovers out of it", McCarthy said. 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. He did not participate in practice on either Wednesday or Thursday as the Packers prepared for their game against the Lions. "When you step in, there's an expectation you're going to make the plays.' So, we've got to keep improving in practice".

Cobb will sit out his second straight game due to a hamstring injury.

"Mike and I talk all the time", Rodgers said.

There's time for one or more of the starters to get healthy. "Those opportunities are going to come and it's all about just them being ready for them". "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". "It's never happened to me. So, it's trying to be smart on both sides of it, which I struggle with because I play through emotion".

Rice tweeted a little later that she was "not making any announcements" but was "deeply disappointed" by Collins' vote. Vice President Mike Pence planned to be available on Saturday in case his tie-breaking vote was needed.

Rookie wide receivers rarely make a huge impact on offense.

However, as Moore dropped passes throughout the summer, Valdes-Scantling's consistency allowed him to jump to the top of the list. "But I felt like I needed something to try to spur on the next one", Crosby said.

Said running back Aaron Jones, "You just stick behind him".

Crosby did make his final kick of the day, a 41-yarder with 2 seconds to play, to avoid setting an National Football League record for most kicks without a make in a game.

There's plenty of blame to go around in Green Bay. A fifth-round pick previous year, he spent all of his rookie season on the practice squad.

They started their second possession at the 1-yard line after a controversial muffed punt, when officials ruled a bouncing ball hit Packers jammer Kevin King and not Lions gunner Charles Washington, and scored one play later on Blount's first touchdown.
