    GREEN BAY Jace Sternberger Green Bay Packer , Wis. (AP) — Packers wideout Davante Adams is optimistic that he will be able to play in Green Bay’s season finale against the Detroit Lions, a game in which he would have a shot to break a couple of franchise receiving records.Adams missed practice on Wednesday. The star receiver hurt his right knee in last week’s 44-38 overtime win over the New York Jets.“I see myself being out there. I’m always going to be optimistic. A little sore right now, but we’ll play it throughout the week and see how it feels,” Adams said in the locker room.The Packers (6-8-1) were eliminated from playoff contention two weeks ago. They placed another key starter, Kenny Clark, on injured reserve on Wednesday after the defensive lineman missed the past two games with an elbow injury.With 111 catches, Adams is two shy of breaking the club record set by Sterling Sharpe in 1993. He’s also 134 yards shy of breaking the single-season mark set by Jordy Nelson (1,519) in 2014.“Yeah, that would be sweet. We’ll see exactly how it goes,” Adams said about the possibility of setting the records. “Obviously, I’ve got my sights set on trying to win a football game, and if we can accomplish that in the meantime, it would be great.”Green Bay’s lengthy injury report lists nine players who sat out practice on Wednesday, including Adams and five other starters. Cornerback Jaire Alexander (groin) Jace Sternberger Jersey 2019 , left tackle David Bakhtiari (hip) and linebacker Clay Matthews (back) were among those who sat out.Receiver Randall Cobb (concussion), who missed last week’s game, also sat out practice. Tight end Jimmy Graham (knee/thumb) has regularly missed practices on Wednesdays during the year for maintenance.Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, a regular on the injury report this year, said that he plans on playing in the finale even if Bakhtiari can’t go. Bakhtiari, the Packers’ best lineman, has often said that he plays if Rodgers plays.Rodgers, who led the Packers’ stirring comeback against the Jets, participated fully in practice with lingering knee and groin injuries.“Well, I plan on playing. So . if anybody has to adjust this week, it’s got to be” Bakhtiari” Rodgers said.Interim head coach Joe Philbin said the intent is for players to go if cleared.“If they’re not ready to go … and it’s not in their best interest to play in the game, then they absolutely won’t play in the game,” Philbin said. “However, if they’re healthy and they’re able to contribute to the success of the team Color Rush Jace Sternberger Jersey , again — they’re football players and that’s what they should be doing.”NOTES: Starting left guard Lane Taylor and right tackle Bryan Bulaga were limited with knee injuries. Starting safety Kentrell Brice was limited with an ankle injury. … Rookie reserve offensive lineman Alex Light was activated from exempt status after being suspended by the league last week for the Jets game for violating the league’s substance abuse policy. There’s no word yet if the embattled safety will skip this week’s practices, but there is a hefty fine waiting for him if he does." />Skip to main contentclockmenumore-arrownoyesAcme Packing Company homepageHorizontal - WhiteAcme Packing Companya Green Bay Packers communityFollow Acme Packing Company online:Follow Acme Packing Company on TwitterFollow Acme Packing Company on FacebookFollow Acme Packing Company on InstagramLog in or sign upLog InSign UpSite searchSearchSearchAcme Packing Company main menuFanpostsFanshotsSectionsPackersOddsAboutMasthe adCommunity GuidelinesStubHubMoreAll 321 blogs on Horizontal - WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections The APC PodcastPackers Film RoomFantasy Football Adviceif he does.CDTThe Green Bay Packers have yet to see third-year safety Josh Jones on the field for a practice this spring. Jones has elected to sit out the team’s voluntary practices during organized team activities, hoping to communicate his displeasure with his role and force a trade out of Green Bay. This week will demonstrate just how strongly Jones wants to force his way out of town and how much he is willing to sacrifice to make his point. The Packers host minicamp this week, running from Tuesday to Thursday, and this event is mandatory. Teams can elect to fine players who do not appear for minicamp, with an escalating fine schedule laid out clearly in the Collective Bargaining Agreement. For each day that a player skips, his potential fine increases. As reports, missing one day will cost a player $14,775 this year; day two carries double that fine at $29,550, and skipping the third and final day is triple at $44,325. All told, choosing not to show up for the entire week would cost a player a total of $88,650.That would be a significant blow for a third-year player like Jones Cheap Jace Sternberger Jersey , representing over ten percent of the roughly $850,000 base salary he is set to earn in 2019. With no other bonuses in his contract, Jones would need to take that fine out of any reserved money left over from his previous years’ earnings — about $2.34 million covering his signing bonus and two years of base salary — and earn that back over a few games on the active roster.So far, Jones has not sacrificed any money to make his point. OTA practices are entirely voluntary, so a team cannot fine or otherwise take action against a player who chooses not to appear. The Packers, of course, were one of the pioneers of the workout bonus clause in their players’ contracts, which ensures veterans’ appearance at OTAs. However, Jones is playing on a rookie deal, which has no such provision.The odds are that Jones will indeed appear this week, given the price tag that comes along with staying home. But if he feels that the differences between him and the Packers are irreconcilable, he may feel it worthwhile to make a $90,000 statement.
