Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams missed a second day of practice with an ankle injury, and the receiver may not know until warmups before the NFC championship game on Sunday whether he’ll be able to play against the Atlanta Falcons.
Adams hurt the ankle during the 34-31 win last week against the Dallas Cowboys. He said that he’s feeling better, though he was unsure whether he will feel well enough by Saturday to take part in Green Bay’s final practice of the week. Adams might still be able to play after testing out the ankle in warmups before the game on Sunday afternoon, even if he sits out practice on Saturday. Receiver Jordy Nelson practiced on a limited basis for a second straight day on Thursday. He missed the Cowboys game with broken ribs. Rookie receiver Geronimo Allison also missed a second straight day of practice with a hamstring injury
Free agent right-hander Neftali Feliz has signed a one-year contract with the Milwaukee Brewers, who are looking for a closer in the bullpen. Feliz’s deal, which was announced by the team on Thursday, is worth $5.35 million, with $1.5 million in performance bonuses based on games and games finished. The eight-year veteran spent last season with the Pittsburgh Pirates, going 4-2 with a 3.52 ERA in 62 games, serving mainly as a setup man. The 28-year-old Feliz was a closer for the Texas Rangers early in his career, winning the AL Rookie of the Year award in 2010 after saving 40 games. The Brewers are looking for a closer after trading away Tyler Thornburg to the Boston Rex Sox in the offseason.
