GREEN BAY, Wis. – As far as attire goes, the futuristic-looking walking boot Davante Adams sported on his left foot on Wednesday looked pretty cool.
But it can't be a good sign for the Green Bay Packers receiver and his chances to play in Sunday's game at San Francisco.
Adams lasted only three plays into Monday night's victory over the Kansas City Chiefs before he had to bow out. He first sprained his ankle the previous week against the Seahawks.
However, it might not be as bad as you think. Adams said that contrary to some reports, it's not the dreaded high ankle sprain.
"No, it's low," Adams said. "It's just a regular one. Just trying to keep it stabilized and make sure I don't hurt it any more."
Adams did not practice on Wednesday.
"It got a little tweaked, but it's day to day, just getting it right," he said. "It's just pretty much to make sure that I'm taking care of it. It's preventative for the most part. I don't want to do anything worse to it."
Adams was one of a season-high 12 players listed on the Packers' injury report, but it wasn’t all bad news. Running back Eddie Lacy made it through Monday's game without a setback to his sprained right ankle and was a full participant in practice. So was defensive end Datone Jones, who did not sustain a concussion against the Chiefs, as first feared.
The Packers also got defensive tackle Letroy Guion on the practice field for the first time in the regular season. His three-game suspension expired after Monday's game. The Packers received a roster exemption that allows Guion to practice this week without counting against the 53-man roster. However, they will need to add him before Sunday's game.
