The Packers played well without Adams last week, beating the Cowboys 34-24. Tight end Jimmy Graham and receivers Geronimo Allison and Marquez Valdes-Scantling are expected to get more targets in Adams' absence.

Adams, selected in the second round of the 2014 draft, was quarterback Aaron Rodgers' top target as he had 25 receptions for 378 yards through the first four weeks of the season.
