Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams stated in a now-deleted tweet which he won’t play Monday night’s match against the Atlanta Falcons.
Adams will miss his second straight game due to a hamstring injury suffered during Green Bay’s Week 2 triumph over the Detroit Lions.
Adams had been formally listed as questionable after being restricted in practice last week. He signaled in his conversation he wishes to perform Monday but has been hauled out.
“Sorry fans and friends I wont be on the field tonight. I’ve done everything I need to do and proved Im ready but I guess I don’t know my body as well as others. Good luck out there my boys,” Adams stated in a tweet that’s been deleted.

The Packers will be without recipient Allen Lazard, who experienced core muscle operation last week after appearing Green Bay’s No. 1 wideout with no Adams.
Adams stated last week he wished to be sure that he had been 100percent before he returned.
“I will be making sure I feel normal — like before it happened — before I step out there,” Adams stated Thursday. “So we’re doing our thing to make sure that that’s the case.”
Last week, Adams worked out a couple of hours prior to kickoff from the New Orleans Saints prior to being ruled out.
“That was the plan all week long was to get a good feel to see how I felt come pregame, just to give me all the time I needed, and came to the conclusion that I wasn’t quite ready yet,” Adams stated last week. “It was close. I felt good, but I wanted to be as smart as possible, so we decided to hold off on that.”
At least one other Packers participant expressed frustration he was held from a match this year. Right handle Billy Turner, who suffered a knee injury during training campwas dormant for the opener but then dressed and didn’t perform in Week two until he returned to the lineup in Week 3.
“Without discussing my injury because that is not something that I talk about, you gotta ask the coaching staff and the medical staff about that,” Turner said. “That was not my decisions. But here we are going into Week 4, and I’m up and playing and I’m healthy and that’s all I’m going to say about that.”
