In a true out-of-nowhere performance, Adams led all receivers on the night in receptions, yardage and targets while impressively bouncing back from a concussion suffered just four days prior versus the Cowboys. He also added two more scores to his burgeoning touchdown resume, hooking up with Aaron Rodgers for a go-ahead five-yard score late in the third before connecting with him for a second time from two yards out to extend the
Despite a limited amount of time to complete the concussion protocol, Adams has done just that and will thus suit up in this divisional clash. Coming only fours days from the Packers' last tilt, an aggravation of the head injury isn't outside the realm of possibility, but he could be poised for an expanded target count in an offense that's characterized by a patchwork backfield with Eddie Lacy (ankle) and James Starks (knee) on IR.
Considering he turned in one limited practice this week, Adams likely hasn't completed every step of the protocol for head injuries. On the other hand, the
Adams (concussion) did not practice Tuesday.
Adams was unsurprisingly listed as a non-participant for the second straight day, after suffering a concussion in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys. His chances to avoid an absence would be much better if the Packers weren't on a short week ahead of Thursday's game against the Bears. Should Adams miss the game, Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis would be the top candidates to absorb his usual snaps, though Montgomery may be needed in the backfield.
Adams said he was cleared by concussion evaluators after Sunday's loss to the Cowboys, but his placement on Green Bay's estimated report suggests he did suffer a concussion. As a result, the wideout should be hard-pressed to be available for Thursday's game against the Bears. If Adams is indeed sidelined, Ty Montgomery, Jeff Janis, and Trevor Davis could see more snaps than usual, with Montgomery serving as potential help in the Packers' backfield as well given the injuries to Eddie Lacy (ankle) and James Starks (knee).
