Packers' Davante Adams avoids major knee injury

LANDOVER, Md. -- Initial tests showed Davante Adams avoided a major knee injury Sunday in the Green Bay Packers' win over the Washington Redskins, but the receiver will have a short week to get ready for Saturday's NFC divisional playoff game at Arizona.

Adams limped off the field in the third quarter of the Packers' 35-18 win over the Redskins and did not return to the game.

"It's a little sore right now, but I think I'll be fine," Adams said.

Adams was injured when tight end Richard Rodgers landed on top of him following a 9-yard reception. Adams had trouble putting weight on his right knee but managed to leave the field under his power.

"They said that it's just going to be a thing that they felt it would probably be best and smartest if I sat out the rest of the half," Adams said. "It's a situation where you just feel it out throughout the week, but I think I'll be fine."

Adams caught four passes for 48 yards, including a 10-yard touchdown in the second quarter. It was his first touchdown since Dec. 3 against Detroit. Adams missed three games earlier this season because of a sprained ankle.

"Davante's really had his best two weeks of practice, and frankly, we were anticipating him having a good night tonight," Packers coach Mike McCarthy said. "Hopefully his knee, we'll find out more tomorrow where he's at."
