Adams was listed as questionable with a shoulder injury. He missed the first two days of practice during the week, but worked on a limited basis Saturday. He was hurt in a Week 4 loss at the Los Angeles Chargers, but he did finish the game. So, it was likely he would be playing against the Packers, who traded him to the Raiders in March, 2022. This is the first meeting between the two teams since the deal.

Meanwhile, cornerbacks Jakorian Bennett is inactive. He was questionable with hamstring and shoulder injuries. Saturday, cornerback Nate Hobbs was ruled out of the game because of an ankle injury.

Safety Marcus Epps suffered a knee injury in practice Saturday and was listed as questionable as was cornerback David Long. They’re both active.
