Packers WR Adams active after scary hit last week

Green Bay receiver Davante Adams is active against Dallas on Sunday, 10 days after he was taken off the field on a stretcher following a helmet-to-helmet hit that led to a suspension for Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan.

Packers running back is Ty Montgomery inactive after sustaining broken ribs in the win over the Bears. Left tackle David Bakhtiari (hamstring) is out against the Cowboys, but right tackle Bryan Bulaga (ankle) is active.

Adams was in the concussion protocol, but moved around well in practice during the week.

Dallas linebacker Sean Lee will miss his second straight game with a hamstring injury. Defensive tackle Stephen Paea (knee) also is inactive after starting the first four games. CB Nolan Carroll will miss his third straight game because of a concussion.

Packers: Sidelined are CB Lenzy Pipkins, LB Joe Thomas, OL Adam Pankey, DT Montravius Adams, LB Chris Odom.

Titans: QB Marcus Mariota is inactive against the Miami Dolphins because of a left hamstring injury.

Backup Matt Cassel will start after taking the bulk of the first-team reps in practice during the week. Mariota was limited in practice and listed as questionable after being hurt in a 57-14 loss at Houston a week ago.

The Titans are 1-4 without Mariota, who missed four games as a rookie in 2015 because of knee injuries, and the 2016 season finale due to a broken right leg.

Cassel struggled last week coming off the bench. He was intercepted twice, with one returned for a touchdown, and stripped of the ball when sacked. Brandon Weeden, signed Tuesday as insurance, is Cassel’s backup.
