170118-adams-950GREEN BAY — Packers WR Davante Adams isn’t expected to practice until at least Saturday, according to Head Coach Mike McCarthy.

Adams left briefly after injuring his ankle during Sunday’s 34-31 win over the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Divisional playoffs, but returned to the game and finished with five catches for 76 yards.

“We’ll see,” said McCarthy during his Wednesday afternoon news conference. “I’m curious to see him move.”

Packers WR Jordy Nelson (rib) and S Morgan Burnett (quad) will be part of the rehab group of Wednesday’s practice, according to McCarthy. Nelson sat out of last week’s game, while Burnett left in the first half of Sunday’s game in Dallas.

McCarthy said LT David Bakhtiari (knee) and RT Bryan Bulaga are expected to practice in limited capacity. He also added that CB Quinten Rollins is “getting close” to passing the concussion protocol.

The second-year cornerback has missed the last two games after being carted off the field in the regular-season finale against Detroit with a neck injury.
