Adams (foot) was seen without a walking boot at Tuesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports.
Just more than two weeks removed from foot surgery, Adams was able to join his teammates on the field, albeit as a spectator without pads. Due to the nature of the procedure -- he had a screw inserted in his foot -- he's expected to miss the entirety of his first NFL preseason. Once healthy, though, the 2017 third-round pick will provide depth to the Packers defensive front.
Adams (foot) was seen in just a walking boot Friday, Ryan Rood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports.
Adams was last seen in a cast following the Packers' Family Night on Saturday, so the downgrade to a boot can be seen as notable progress. Adams originally seemed like a virtual lock to kick the year off on the Physically Unable to Perform list, but there me be hope to avoid it yet.
Adams is expected to miss about six weeks after having a screw inserted into his foot, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
The rookie's injury looks like it will keep him sidelined throughout training camp and the preseason, making it a virtual certainty that he'll open the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, if not injured reserve. With Adams out of the mix, Ricky Jean-Francois and Christian Ringo seem poised to battle it out for the top backup job at nose tackle behind Kenny Clark.
Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Adams (foot) will be sidelined for "multiple weeks," Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
It's a troubling setback for the rookie third-round pick, who will miss out on meaningful reps in training camp, and quite likely, at least some action during the preseason. If Adams' injury ends up sidelining him throughout August, the Packers could end up placing him on the regular season Physically Unable to Perform list while he works his way back into playing shape. That would keep Adams unavailable for at least the first six weeks of the regular season.
Adams missed the Packers' first padded practice due to a foot injury, Rob Demovsky of ESPN reports.
There is no indication that the injury for Adams, the team's third-round draft pick, is anything serious. The team is likely allowing him to heal in order ensure his full health as training camp progresses. The Auburn product may not start for the Packers, but he figures to see meaningful snaps once the season gets going.
