Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy is optimistic wide receiver Davante Adams and safety Morgan Burnett may be able to play tomorrow when the Packers host the San Diego Chargers at Lambeau Field (3:25 pm).
Although he had to be helped off the field last Sunday in a game against the Rams, guard T.J. Lang says he’s ready to start the next game.
Nose guard B.J. Raji, cornerback LaDarius Gunter and linebacker Nick Perry are listed as doubtful for the game against the Chargers.
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews was fined $17,363 by the N-F-L for his first quarter hit on St. Louis Rams quarterback Nick Foles last Sunday. The fine is for a first-time offense for roughing the passer. Matthews had a previous fine against Foles while the quarterback played for the Philadelphia Eagles in 2013, but it was rescinded. Matthews wasn’t penalized for the hit in Sunday’s game but Rams coach Jeff Fisher complained that he should have.
