A foot injury looks likely to keep Mike Daniels off the field for at least the next few weeks.

In addition to suffering a crippling NFC loss this past Thursday, the Green Bay Packers also saw defensive tackle Mike Daniels limp off with a foot injury. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, that injury could sideline the veteran defensive lineman for multiple weeks.

Daniels suffered his injury during the second half of Thursday’s loss to the Seattle Seahawks, spending the rest of the game on the sidelines while the Packers defense proved unable to make a stop before time expired. The defensive line also saw Kenny Clark leave with an injury of his own, but he returned later in the game. Still, with Daniels on the shelf for now, the defensive line will now play without two of its Week 1 starters as Muhammad Wilkerson remains out for the year with a broken ankle.

Until Daniels returns, the Packers will likely turn to second-year defensive lineman Montravius Adams. Adams, who played sparingly for the majority of the season, began to receive more snaps in recent weeks and recorded his first sack last Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

In 10 games, Daniels has recorded 18 tackles and two sacks. He turns 30 this upcoming offseason.
