McCarthy: Davante Adams won't play against Vikings

Fourth-year receiver remains in the concussion protocol



GREEN BAY – Davante Adams will miss Saturday's game against Minnesota due to the concussion he sustained on a blind-side block from Carolina linebacker Thomas Davis Sunday, Packers Head Coach Mike McCarthy confirmed.

The fourth-year receiver suffered a concussion on a hit from Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan in Week 4, but was cleared in time to play the following week against Dallas.

Adams, a Pro Bowl alternate, leads the Packers with 74 catches for 885 yards and 10 touchdown in 14 games. Geronimo Allison replaced Adams against the Panthers, catching five passes for 33 yards.

Cornerback Davon House (back/shoulder) returned to practice in a limited capacity Wednesday. House told reporters earlier this week he hopes to play against the Vikings after sitting out in Carolina, though his availability likely will be determined during Friday's final practice.

"He's trying," said McCarthy on Thursday morning. "Practice will be big for him tomorrow. He's optimistic. We'll see how he comes out tomorrow."

Neither Nick Perry (shoulder/foot) nor Clay Matthews (hamstring) practiced Wednesday. McCarthy said Perry is "further away" than Matthews at the moment. The team will see what they can do Friday.
