The wide receiver, who has said he’s fully vaccinated, would need be asymptomatic and test negative twice 24 hours apart to play against the Cardinals.

If Adams had been unvaccinated and tested positive, he would be out a minimum of 10 days. If Adams had been unvaccinated and a close contact of someone who tested positive for COVID-19, he would have been out a minimum of five days.

The Packers’ top wide receivers Thursday night will likely be Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb, Equanimeous St. Brown and rookie Amari Rodgers. Green Bay also has wide receivers Chris Blair and Juan Winfree on the practice squad. Packers wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling remains on injured reserve with a hamstring injury.
