Green Bay Packers head coach Mike McCarthy has confirmed that the team will be without the services of one of their promising rookies for the rest of training camp.
Montravius Adams was the Packers' third round pick at the 2017 NFL Draft. The 6'4, 304-lb defensive end signed his rookie contract with the Packers on July 5th.
Adams was named to the first team All-SEC in 2016, his last year playing college ball for Auburn and was also named a second-team All American at the end of that season.
While it's unfortunate that the 22-year-old will likely miss the remainder of camp, his future is now a bit uncertain.
Depending on the severity of his injury, Adams could end up on the injured reserve list, but that has to happen after the team finalizes its 53-man roster. Given the fact that he was a third-round pick, it's likely that Adams won't be cut regardless of his health status.
Time will tell how this story plays out, but what's for sure is that the Packers will have to make due without Adams for a few weeks at least, giving ample opportunity for guys like Chrisitan Ringo and Brian Price to step up in his place.
