Adams Early Star Dimmed By Foot Injury

The Packers 3rd round draft choice, Montravius Adams, was showing promise.  He was big, strong and used terrific leverage to move mountains up front via offensive lineman.  Some of the praise heaped upon him by his teammates was comparable with the likes of Warren Sapp.  Strong praise for a young man who hasn’t played a down yet in the NFL.  All that promise has now come to a disappointing halt. Adams has a stress fracture in his foot that may or may not require surgery and maybe even screws to be inserted to solidify the break.  There isn’t any timetable for Adams return but estimates are 4 to 8 weeks depending on the severity of the fracture. All that said, this leaves a d-line, already filled with question marks, with now even more pressure to perform.  While Mike Daniels is the tenacious mainstay, Ricky Jean-Francois, Kenny Clark, Dean Lowery, Christian Ringo all now must not only step up, but come of age and remain healthy. I can’t see that unproven group striking fear in anyone….at least not yet.
