NFL: The Packers were back on the practice field Monday as they continue their work in training camp. The team will practice again at 8:15 this morning before an off-day Wednesday.

The Packers will be without rookie defensive tackle Montravious Adams for multiple weeks after Adams suffered a foot injury in practice last week. Adams was a third-round pick out of Auburn in this spring’s draft. Mike McCarthy said he didn’t have more specifics, but he expected Adams to miss some significant time.
