Adams caught eight of 12 targets for 64 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 29-29 tie with the Vikings.
Adams led the team in targets and catches, but he finished with a modest yardage total as his long gain equaled just 16 yards. He salvaged his day from a fantasy perspective with a nine-yard touchdown reception in the second quarter, giving him two scores in as many weeks to start the season. Adams' big-play potential could suffer for as long as Aaron Rodgers (knee) is limited by his injury, but the red-zone rapport between the two is virtually unmatched and should continue to pay dividends. He'll look to continue what's been a solid start to the campaign Week 3 against the Redskins.
Adams emerged from the Packers' Week 1 win against the Bears with a shoulder injury, which he suffered at the end of a 51-yard catch-and-run in the second half. It didn't stop him from finishing out the contest, but he missed practice Wednesday before returning in a limited capacity Thursday and Friday. With his game-day status confirmed, Adams also will have Aaron Rodgers under center, albeit at far less than his typical mobility due to the knee injury that has been the talk of the NFL the past week.
Adams (shoulder) is expected to play Sunday against Minnesota, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Adams is listed as questionable on the official injury report. Adams missed a day of practice early in the week but was able to return on a limited basis. Still, this report isn't official and his status will need to be confirmed before inactives are announced ahead of Sunday's 1 PM ET kickoff.
Adams was withheld entirely from the Packers' first practice of the week while recovering from the shoulder injury he sustained in Sunday's victory over the Bears, so his presence on the field in any capacity Thursday amounts to progress. For his part, Adams downplayed the severity of the injury and didn't seem concerned about his availability for the Week 2 matchup with the Vikings. The Packers would probably like to see Adams put in a full practice Friday to feel comfortable about his health heading into the weekend.
Adams suffered a shoulder injury during Sunday's 24-23 win against the Bears, Michael Cohen of The Athletic reports.
En route to a 5-88-1 line in the season opener, Adams landed hard on his shoulder during his 51-yard reception during the Packers' second of three touchdown drives in the fourth quarter. He told Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel that the shoulder in question "stiffened up" Monday, which will keep him "day-to-day" for the time being. Both Adams and Aaron Rodgers (sprained knee) are question marks for the Packers' Week 2 showdown with the Vikings, so the respective statuses of the duo will make the Packers' injury report one to watch closely this week. Both players were held out of Wednesday's practice.
