Davante Adams hasn't suited up for the Green Bay Packers since the team's only loss of the season, to the Philadelphia Eagles. The team has thrived in the weeks since, as Aaron Rodgers continues to progress within Matt LaFleur's system and running back Aaron Jones turns into one of the more dangerous all-around backs in the NFL.

At 7-1, the team clearly has Super Bowl aspirations. The reach them, it needs Adams back, playing as a locked in Wide Receiver 1.

He's missed the team's last four games, all wins, with turf toe. That injury is a notoriously nagging one, and Adams has said that he doesn't want to risk returning before he's 100-percent ready to play.

Luckily for the Packers, it looks like that day is drawing near.

Today, Adams was seen running routes and catching passes during some light drill work.

From Stephen Watson of WISN-TV in Milwaukee:

LaFleur acknowledged that Adams is progressing, but he isn't ready to say that Adams will play this weekend against the Los Angeles Chargers.

If Adams has to sit out another week, doing so against the reeling Chargers isn't the worst option, though the team does still have some talent, and there are no certain wins in the NFL.

The following week, the Packers host the Carolina Panthers, and then after a bye, travel to play the undefeated San Francisco 49ers.
