But we’re just going to wait it out and see.” Quarterback Aaron Rodgers isn’t concerned about Adams. Number 12 said, “If he doesn’t practice, I would feel completely comfortable if he wakes up Sunday morning and says, ‘I’m going to play.” Saints Pro Bowl receiver Michael Thomas suffered an ankle injury in Monday night’s loss at the Raiders.
