Despite not having Davante Adams for the past four games, the Green Bay Packers have gone undefeated during that stretch. They might not need it, but help could be on the way this weekend for the top team in the NFC North.

Prior to sustaining a toe injury, Adams shred the Eagles secondary for 180 receiving yards. He was putting together an incredible start to the season before getting hurt.

Green Bay has relied on role players to fill the void, such as Jake Kumerow and Allen Lazard. The offense has also relied on their running game with Aaron Jones.

Even if the Packers don't have Adams this weekend against the Los Angeles Chargers, they'll be favored heading into that game. And yet, it sounds like the top wideout for Green Bay is nearing a return to the gridiron.

According to ESPN reporter Rob Demovsky, Adams had his helmet and shoulder pads on during practice for the first time since late September.

This is a strong sign that he's on track to play this Sunday.

Adams should be listed as a limited or full participant during practice on the injury report.

Green Bay is currently in the mix for one of the top seeds in the NFC. The return of Adams should help the team make their second-half postseason push.
