Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says receiver Davante Adams may not practice until Saturday because of an ankle injury, the latest question for a receiving group that may also be without Jordy Nelson for the NFC championship game. Adams got hurt in the 34-31 win last week over the Dallas Cowboys. The third-year wideout had a breakout regular season with 75 catches for 997 yards and 12 touchdowns. McCarthy said that Adams would focus on rehab during practice on Wednesday, as would Nelson. Nelson missed the Cowboys game with injured ribs. Nelson led the NFL this season with 14 touchdown catches. He was quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ top target this season with 97 catches for 1,257 yards
Cooperstown is opening its doors to three stars while continuing to turn its back on two players tainted by the steroids era. Jeff Bagwell, Tim Raines and Ivan Rodriguez have been elected to baseball’s Hall of Fame, earning the honor. Closer Trevor Hoffman and slugger Vladimir Guerrero fell just short. Steroids-tainted stars Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens were passed over for the fifth straight year by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. But in a sign the writers are softening their stance, Bonds and Clemens received significantly more votes this time and could be in position to gain election in future votes. Bagwell drew 86.2 percent and Raines got 86 percent. Rodriguez had 76 percent — just over the 75 percent needed to qualify. Hoffman was five votes shy and Guerrero 15 short.
