Green Bay, WI - The Packers (7-2) host the Carolina Panthers (5-3) Sunday at 3:25pm at Lambeau Field. 

Last spring Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers was asked if he'd like to see receiver Davante Adams get 100 receptions this season.

"I'd like to see him get 200 receptions."

Over the years Rodgers has been criticize for playing to his favorites; Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Adams, and not using all of his receivers. Rodgers often talks about the "trust" he expects from his teammates, that they run the proper route, and don't contribute to an intercpetion. 

Davante Adams was having a career night, with 10 catches, when he went down with a turf toe. The Packers lost the game to the Eagles. 

For the next four weeks, the Packers won each game with a mix of pass and run plays to running backs Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams, tight end Jimmy Graham, receiver Allen Lazard, and the rest of the offensive skill players. They won four in a row. 

On Adams first game back, he was the favored receiver in a dismal 26-11 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Rodgers was asked if he still feels Adams should be his primary receiver in Sunday's game against the Panthers. 

The Packers quarterback responded by saying it will be important to use all of their weapons on offense.
