When the Green Bay Packers host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday, the offense will be without several key playmakers. In addition to Davante Adams being unlikely to suit up this weekend, the team might not have Marquez Valdes-Scantling or Geronimo Allison.

On Thursday, the Packers revealed that eight players did not practice. The main concern here is that most of the injuries are on the offensive side of the football.

Green Bay managed to defeat on Monday night without having a strong core of wide receivers. However, it should be noted that the offense needed a heroic performance from Allen Lazard to pull off the win.

With the Raiders coming to town this weekend, the Packers would love to have their veteran wideouts back on the field.

At this point though, it doesn't sound like Green Bay will be at full strength.

Per ESPN reporter Rob Demovsky, the Packers were without Adams, Valdes-Scantling and Allison for the final practice of the week. This means they're all unlikely to play on Sunday.

Since Aaron Rodgers could be without his best wide receivers, which means Jake Kumerow, Allen Lazard and Darrius Shepard would be his primary targets.

Matt LaFleur may have to use a heavy dose of Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams due to all the injuries at wide receiver.

Kickoff for this game is at 1 p.m. ET on CBS.
