    Adams (ankle) is expected to play Thursday against the Patriots, Alan Saunders of SteelersNow.com reports. Adams hasn't played since Week 9, but he was close to returning for Sunday's loss to the Cardinals after closing the week with back-to-back full practices. The return of the veteran defensive tackle would be good news for the Steelers' defensive front.

  • Steelers' Montravius Adams: Appears ready to play Sunday

    Adams (ankle) was a full participant at practice Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers' official site reports. Adams has missed Pittsburgh's last three games due to an ankle injury, but it now looks like he's finally back at 100 percent strength. He's still on pace for a career-best season despite already having missed time, and he should be heavily involved when he returns in Week 13.

  • Steelers' Montravius Adams: Enters COVID protocols

    Adams was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Teresa Varley of the Steelers official site reports. Adams was signed off the Saints' practice squad on Nov. 29 and played a prominent reserve role at nose tackle upon his arrival while Isaiah Buggs was out with an ankle injury. With Buggs expected to return Sunday against the Titans, Adams was headed toward a diminished role whether or not he is cleared to play in time.

  • Saints' Montravius Adams: Signed to active roster

    The Saints signed Adams to their active roster Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports. Adams has unique athleticism for a 6-foot-4, 300-plus pound lineman, but he hasn't been able to put it all together at the NFL level. He will join Christian Ringo, Shy Tuttle and Albert Huggins on the interior of the Saints' defensive line.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Moves to injured reserve

    Adams (toe) was placed on injured reserve Wednesday. Adams missed Sunday's loss to the Colts due to the toe injury and will now be unavailable for at least the next three games. Kingsley Keke and Billy Winn are currently the only reserve defensive lineman on Green Bay's roster, though recent waiver claim Anthony Rush should clear the league's COVID-19 protocols in the next few days.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Suiting up Sunday

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Active for Week 6

    Adams (toe) will suit up in Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Arrested Tuesday

    Adams was arrested in his home state of Georgia on Tuesday and charged with three misdemeanors, Tom Green of AL.com reports.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Returns to practice field

    Adams (shoulder) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Matt Schneidman of The Athletic reports. This is Adams' first appearance in practice in over two weeks. If Adams can shake off the injury before Sunday's game versus the Cowboys, he could have a large role on defense. Over the last three weeks, the Packers have failed to keep any opponent under 149 rushing yards, so Adams' run-stopping skills would come in handy in Green Bay's quest to slow down Ezekiel Elliott.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Can't play TNF

    Adams (shoulder) was ruled out for Thursday's game versus the Eagles, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Adams will miss his second straight game. In Week 3, the Packers bumped Tyler Lancaster to defensive end, and Lancaster was solid with seven tackles. They'll likely deploy a similar setup Thursday. Adams will have extra rest leading up to Week 5's game versus the Cowboys.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Doubtful Week 3

    Adams has been deemed doubtful for Sunday's game against the Broncos due to a shoulder injury, Ryan Wood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Adams was unable to practice all week after presumably injuring his shoulder in the Packers' Week 2 victory over the Vikings. Barring a quick turnaround in health, he seems unlikely to suit up Sunday. If that is ultimately the case, look for Kingsley Keke and Fadol Brown to fill in at defensive end.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Plays in every game in 2018

    Adams appeared in 16 games for the Packers in 2018, and finished with 20 tackles (11 solo) and 1.5 sacks. Adams made far more of an impact than he did in his rookie season, when he tallied just two tackles over seven games. Despite the improvement, the 2017 third-rounder is likely looking at a reserve role again in 2019.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Doesn't make much noise in rookie season

    Adams totaled two tackles (one solo) over seven games during his rookie season of 2017. The Packers were certainly hoping for more from Adams after selecting him in the third round, but an offseason foot injury slowed his progress and deemed him essentially a non-factor in his first year as a pro. As long as he is healthy, Adams will get a chance to play a bigger role in his sophomore campaign.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Ditches walking boot

    Adams (foot) was seen without a walking boot at Tuesday's practice, Rob Demovsky of ESPN.com reports. Just more than two weeks removed from foot surgery, Adams was able to join his teammates on the field, albeit as a spectator without pads. Due to the nature of the procedure -- he had a screw inserted in his foot -- he's expected to miss the entirety of his first NFL preseason. Once healthy, though, the 2017 third-round pick will provide depth to the Packers defensive front.

  • Packers' Montravius Adams: Seen in walking boot

    Adams (foot) was seen in just a walking boot Friday, Ryan Rood of the Green Bay Press-Gazette reports. Adams was last seen in a cast following the Packers' Family Night on Saturday, so the downgrade to a boot can be seen as notable progress. Adams originally seemed like a virtual lock to kick the year off on the Physically Unable to Perform list, but the latest news means there may be hope he can still avoid the designation.
