Though nearly everything has gone well for the Green Bay Packers on Monday, they could be without one of their top receivers for some time. According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Adams re-aggravated his high-ankle sprain during the team's tilt with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Adams originally suffered the ankle injury a week ago during the Packers' victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Though he missed much of the game, Adams did return late in the contest in a somewhat limited capacity. Green Bay held him out of practice until Friday, and the wideout demonstrated enough comfort with the injury to start against the Chiefs. Adams lasted just one series before leaving that game for good.

With Adams out, the Packers have just Randall Cobb, James Jones, Ty Montgomery and Jeff Janis at wide receiver. The team also may have lost tight end Andrew Quarless for a significant period of time, leaving just Richard Rodgers and Kennard Backman available at the position.
