Adams (knee) has been ruled out of Saturday's game against the Cardinals, ESPN's Rob Demovsky reports. Adams was considered unlikely to play after suffering an MCL injury last weekend, so Friday's news confirms he'll be unavailable Saturday. Although he struggled for most of this season, Adams' absence leaves the Packers' receiving corp a bit thin against Arizona's deep and talented secondary, but Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis are the most likely candidates to see more playing time.
Packers head coach Mike McCarthy said Adams (knee) needs to practice Friday to have a shot at playing in Sunday's game against the Cardinals. Adams will miss another practice Thursday, after suffering an MCL injury during Sunday's win over the Redskins. Although the Packers aren't officially ruling him out, there's been nothing to suggest that Adams has a real shot of playing. It thus seems Jared Abbrederis will take over as the No. 3 wide receiver, with Jeff Janis potentially also handling some snaps.
Adams (knee) won't take part in Wednesday's practice, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Although Adams sidestepped a significant injury Sunday at Washington, he's tending to an MCL issue that is expected to hold him out of Saturday's matchup in Arizona. If the preceding holds up, Jared Abbrederis would benefit from the targets available due to Adams' absence.
Adams (knee) has been diagnosed with an MCL injury, making him unlikely to play in Saturday's divisional round playoff game against the Cardinals, ESPN.com reports. The extent of the injury remains unclear, but it seems likely that Adams will miss at least one game. An absence would leave Jared Abbrederis as the probable No. 3 wideout alongside Randall Cobb and James Jones, with Jeff Janis potentially also taking on some snaps.
Initial tests conducted on Adams following Sunday's 35-18 win over the Redskins suggested that the receiver avoided a major knee injury, but his status for Saturday's divisional game against the Cardinals remains a question mark, ESPN.com's Rob Demovsky reports. Adams sustained the injury in the third quarter of Sunday's game when tight end Richard Rodgers landed on top of him after a reception. While Adams was able to walk back to the Packers' sideline, he wasn't able to put much weight on the leg and was ruled out for the remainder of the contest. Coach Mike McCarthy said the team expects to know more about the extent of Adams' injury Monday, but with the team facing a short week of practice, there's a chance the wideout won't be able to recover in time to take the field. If that's the case, Adams, who tallied four catches for 48 yards and a touchdown before departing Sunday, would likely see his snaps get handed down to the likes of Jared Abbrederis and Jeff Janis.
