Packers WR Davante Adams returned to practice on Thursday.

The Green Bay Packers could have Davante Adams back on the field in Week 4.

Adams missed last week’s win against the New Orleans Saints due to a hamstring injury, but there’s good news ahead of Monday night’s game against the Atlanta Falcons.

According to Jim Owczarski of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Adams returned to practice on Thursday. With four days still to go until the game against the Falcons, it’s a good sign that Adams has returned to practice.

The Packers tend to be cautious when bringing players back from injury but the fact Adams has been cleared to practice, even if only limited, is encouraging. We’ll find out whether Adams was a limited or full participant when Green Bay’s first injury report for Week 4 is released later today. There was no injury report yesterday due to the game being played on Monday. It’s more likely he was limited as the Packers ease him back into action.

The Packers did just fine without Adams last week, putting up 37 points on the Saints in the Superdome, but there’s no doubt getting Adams back would give this offense a huge boost. And up against a Falcons defense that is allowing 350 passing yards per game — second-most in the NFL through three weeks — is possible sign it could be another big day for the offense.

Of course, it’s no guarantee just yet that Adams will return in Week 4. If he feels any tightness in his hamstring over the next few days, the Packers will likely be cautious and keep him out of the game, especially as the team’s bye is next week, which would give Adams an additional week of recovery.

But as things stand, it looks like Adams could be back out there for the Packers in what could be another offensive showdown against the Falcons.
