Adams has been working through a hamstring injury over the last few weeks, keeping him sidelined for the majority of OTAs up until this point. He was back in uniform for Monday's practice, however, which suggests the Packers top wideout should be a full-go by the time training camp arrives. Despite missing two games last season, Adams pulled in 74 receptions for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns. With Jordy Nelson also being released this offseason, Adams is the clear No. 1 option and should be in for another big year if he's able to stay healthy.
Adams did not participate in Tuesday's OTA session due to a hamstring injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Adams reportedly made his way to the field halfway through practice, but he never participated in the session. The team will likely take precautions with its top wideout early in the offseason to ensure he's ready when the season rolls around. More concern about his status should begin to surface only if the issue begins holding him out into parts of training camp.
Adams said Tuesday that he's cleared the NFL's concussion protocol and doesn't have any long-term concerns about his health, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
The wideout has sustained three documented concussions in the last 14 months, with the most recent head injury sidelining him for the final two games of the 2017 campaign. Though Adams' concussion history shouldn't be dismissed entirely, the Packers evidently agreed with the 25-year-old's own assessment of his health in their decision to ink him to a four-year, $58.75 million extension Friday. With Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) set to return from injury next season, Adams, who established himself as the team's clear No. 1 receiver in 2017 with 74 catches for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns, will once again warrant an early-round selection in fantasy drafts.
Adams was set to become a free agent this offseason, but the Packers ensured no other team got a shot at him by signing him to the new multi-year deal. He'll be paid like a No. 1 receiver, and he made clear in 2017 that he is one, scoring 10 touchdowns despite playing half the season with a fill-in quarterback. He will sit out the season finale while recovering from a concussion, and head injuries are one concern about him going forward. Regardless, he will be back at 100 percent well in advance of the 2018 campaign, and as long as Aaron Rodgers and he both remain healthy, he seems like a safe bet for 1,000 yards and double-digit touchdowns.
Adams (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Lions.
Adams has not practiced since suffering a concussion in Week 15, and as a result, his season has come to a close. His receiving yardage total took a step back this year with regular starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers missing most of the season, but he still managed to catch 74 passes and find paydirt 10 times. Adams is scheduled to become a free agent this offseason, and he figures to garner plenty of interest unless the Packers ink him to a new deal before players can officially visit other teams.
