The Green Bay Packers have done pretty well in Davante Adams absence. Of course, the team would love to get its top wide receiver back soon, and integrate him into what looks like a rapidly-improving offense.

Adams left the team's sole loss of the season to the Philadelphia Eagles, during what was a career day. He caught 10 of 15 targets for 180 yards in the 34-27 loss, but left after coming down with turf toe.

His status has been up in the air since. Last week, Adams said he was feeling "one million percent" better, but still wasn't sure about his status for games moving forward. He missed the team's blowout win over the Oakland Raiders.

At today's practice, Adams was spotted with the team during stretching, but left the field for most of practice.

Speaking to the media after practice, Davante Adams upgraded his status from "one million times better" from the time of injury to "two million times better." Even with that impressive increase, he still doesn't know if he'll be back for Sunday's big game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Chiefs enter the weekend with their own injury intrigue. Quarterback Patrick Mahomes could be back in time for the game after going down with an injury last Thursday. His availability is obviously a massive story, but the ferocious Packers pass rush may not be the best spot for an early return for a player recovering from a knee issue.

The Packers and Chiefs play this weekend's Sunday Night Football game in Kansas City. Kickoff is set for 8:20 p.m. ET.


Last week, Davante Adams said his toe felt “a million times better.”

Now, he said it’s “2 million” times better.

So how many million to play?

“That’s the only answer I do not have,” altho he seemed in a better mood or maybe that was just the @Skittles (his favorite candy)
