Packers PK Mason Crosby melts down in 31-23 loss to Lions

Packers PK Mason Crosby melts down in 31-23 loss to Lions

From the very beginning of Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions, things just seemed off for the Green Bay Packers.

Starting receivers Davante Adams and Geronimo Allison are both questionable.

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. Allison remains in the concussion protocol, but McCarthy thinks (or perhaps hopes) that Allison will clear into time for the game.


The next men up are rookies: fifth-round draft pick Marquez Valdes-Scantling, fourth-round pick J'Mon Moore and sixth-round pick Equanimeous St.

The Detroit Lions took advantage of some mistakes they forced Green Bay to make and were fortunate some breaks simply went their way.

Although Crosby is the obvious goat for leaving 13 points on the field in a eight-point defeat, it's worth noting that Aaron Rodgers wasn't particularly sharp early despite finishing the afternoon with a flourish to total 442 yards and three touchdowns. And they closed the first half with another short touchdown drive, needing just four plays to go 29 yards after a second Rodgers fumble.


"This one unfortunately was really bad and going to have to really look at this one, and you know this one hurts a bunch", Crosby told reporters after the game. He said on Monday that his hamstring continues to bother him.

-The anticipated return of Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith from suspension initiated talk that cornerback Brandon Carr's streak of consecutive starts would end. The game will be the first he has missed since 2016. He started all 12 games in which he played last season, and Marlon Humphrey has been the starter at corner opposite Carr this season.

"Unfortunately, I've seen that quarterback on the other side there crush a lot of leads pretty quickly and come back", said Patricia, a former Patriots defensive coordinator. He was full participation on Thursday - his first full-participation practice since suffering an injured left knee during the first half of the Week 1 victory over Chicago. So I'm going to evaluate the details like I do every week and move on.


The Panthers have already ruled him out for Sunday's game against the New York Giants, but Olsen said there is a chance he could play the following week. "I left a bunch of points on the field for this team, and I'm disappointed".
