Amid the speculation and worry about Aaron Rodgers' knee following the Green Bay Packers' win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday night, we've all missed an apparent Davante Adams injury.

The Packers' top wide receivers is one of the team's most important players, other than Rodgers himself.

On Sunday night, Rodgers got a number of his weapons involved. Adams was key in the drive on which the Packers cut the Bears' lead to 20-17.

He broke a big catch-and-run for 51 yards on the second play of the drive.

Adams caught a six-yard pass two plays later, and a 12-yard touchdown on the next play to cap things off.

Adams says he went down awkwardly at the end of that 51-yard play. Obviously he bounced back and finished the game, but it remains a bit of a concern into this week.

The Davante Adams injury was revealed when he didn't practice today.

Like Rodgers, he sat out today's action. He is staying positive about his chances to play on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings though.

Randall Cobb, who had the game-winning score on an incredible 75-yard touchdown, and Geronimo Allison all had big moments Sunday. Big off-season acquisition Jimmy Graham is still looking for his first big Packers moments.

Still, Adams has become Rodgers' No. 1 target. Green Bay needs both of them back and playing like they did vs. the Bears against the division favorite Vikings.
