We hadn’t noticed, but third-round pick Montravius Adams showed up on the practice field for the Green Bay Packers, this week.
It’s the first time the defensive tackle has done anything on the field since early in training camp. The Packers found Adams had a foot injury and he needed surgery. He’s been sidelined since.
Adams has only been a limited participant, so it isn’t as if he’ll be suiting up this week when the Packers host Seattle. In fact, there’s talk that he’s still a potential candidate for injured reserve.
The Packers will need a roster spot when receiver Geronimo Allison returns from his one-game suspension. The Packers could return Adams from IR, but not for eight weeks.
“I don’t really get to make that decision, but I mean, I think I’ll be ready before eight weeks,” Adams said.
The Packers would appear to have enough depth on the defensive line with or without Adams, especially after adding Quinton Dial on Wednesday. Of course, an injury or two could change that quickly.
With TT signing Dial, Adams is headed to IR.
