Packers wide receiver Davante Adams didn’t suffer a serious injury.

The Green Bay Packers have had a few injury scares at practice over this week.

The latest Packers player to get hurt was star wide receiver Davante Adams during Wednesday’s practice. According to ESPN’s Rob Demovsky, Adams limped off after getting “his feet tied up”. Fortunately, Adams looks to have avoided serious injury as he returned later on.

Injuries are part of the game and something each team has to deal with.

“I think anytime, whether it’s Davante or any other player, you see a guy go down and certainly it leaves a bad taste in your mouth,” head coach Matt LaFleur said in a press conference following Wednesday’s practice.

But the good news for Adams is his injury doesn’t seem to be serious.

“It’s a ‘next man up’ mentality and, fortunately for us, he’s going to be just fine,” LaFleur said.

While it may be a “next man up” mentality for the Packers, they don’t want to lose Adams for any length of time. Yes, they did go 4-0 in the games Adams missed last season, but he’s one of the best at his position and the Packers are a better team when he’s healthy.

Considering Adams returned to practice, and with LaFleur saying he’ll be fine, there doesn’t appear to be any reason for concern.

Expect the Packers to be cautious with any player dealing with a minor injury. Practice reps are obviously important, but not at the cost of turning a minor injury into a worse one.

There is some good injury news. Starting center Corey Linsley didn’t practice on Tuesday but, according to Matt Schneidman of The Athletic, he was back out there on Wednesday.

Hopefully, the Packers will be as close to fully healthy as possible in the regular-season opener in just over three weeks.
