Barring a setback, the Green Bay Packers plan to have their Pro Bowl wide receiver in uniform Sunday when they take on the Los Angeles Chargers. According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, the Packers expect Davante Adams to make his return from the turf toe injury he suffered in Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.
Adams’ turf toe kept him from practicing for several weeks after he first suffered the injury on Sept. 26. The wideout returned in a limited capacity on Wednesday and took part in practice Thursday and Friday as well. In the latter session, WLUK’s John Doran captured Admas leapfrogging a member of the Packers’ training staff in warm ups.
With Adams’ 39.5-inch vertical apparently restored, the Packers feel comfortable letting him suit up for Sunday’s game. That doesn’t necessarily mean he will play without limitations, however. Green Bay could put Adams on a snap count similar to the one used for Kevin King earlier in the season while the cornerback dealt with a hamstring issue.
Though Adams hasn’t played since September, he ranks second on the team in receptions (25) and receiving yards (378).
