The Green Bay Packers might have to face the Arizona Cardinals in Saturday's divisional-round matchup without wide receiver Davante Adams.
Adams sustained a right knee injury in Sunday's victory over the Washington Redskins and is "unlikely to play" Saturday with what is feared to be an MCL sprain, reports Rob Demovsky of ESPN.
The 23-year-old struggled this season with high-profile drops and a lack of production, causing many to question his legitimacy as the Packers potential No. 1 wide receiver with Jordy Nelson sidelined.
However, Adams was in the midst of one of his most impressive outings versus the Redskins before being forced from the game, catching four passes for 48 yards and a touchdown.
Adams didn't appear too concerned with the injury earlier in the week.
"It's a little sore now, but I think I’ll be fine," Adams said Monday, according to Michael Cohen of the Journal Sentinel. "I've just got to feel it out throughout the week and see how I’m doing."
Should Adams be able to go, he will go in with a new-found sense of motivation.
"You’ve just got to remember how you felt walking off that field when we got blown out," Adams said. "It’s the type of thing, they say have a short memory. But with things like that, you want to keep something like that in the back of your mind, just bring a little bit extra dog out of yourself."
If Adams is unable to suit up, Jared Abbrederis is likely to take on an expanded role.
