Packers' Adams: 'Not sure' about playing Monday
Green Bay Packers wideout Davante Adams told reporters Thursday he's "not sure just yet" if he'll be able to play Monday night when the Detroit Lions visit.
Adams missed Thursday's practice after sitting out Week 5 with a turf toe injury. He said the focus is on getting healthy for the long term.
"It is a major injury, so it's something that we gotta pay attention to and make sure we monitor in the correct way to make sure it's not something that is reaggravated later on in the season, or I come back and go too early and really mess the thing up," Adams said. "Just really trying to pace it at this point.
"I can't really tell you when I'm gonna play. I don't know. It doesn't feel how I want it to feel at the moment, but we definitely have time."
Without Adams on Sunday in Dallas, the Packers rode four rushing touchdowns from Aaron Jones to a 31-3 lead and a 34-24 victory.
The 26-year-old had 25 catches for 378 yards this season before getting hurt in Week 4 vs. Philadelphia. He had 10 grabs for 180 yards in that game alone, though he is still seeking his first touchdown of the season.
Meanwhile, quarterback Aaron Rodgers appeared on the injury report for the first time this season, listed as limited with a knee issue. The injury is not believed to be a significant concern.
The Packers' injury report included 20 players, with the most notable absence besides Adams being that of first-round rookie safety Darnell Savage (ankle).
Running back Jamaal Williams returned to a full practice after clearing concussion protocol, two weeks after he was taken off the field on a stretcher following a helmet-to-helmet hit against the Eagles.
