It looks like this former Auburn defensive tackle is going to have a wait a bit until he makes his professional debut.
According to NFL.com reporter Ian Rapoport, Montravius Adams is in jeopardy of missing the Green Bay Packers’ season opener due to injury.
#Packers DT Montravius Adams suffered a stress fracture in his foot and likely needs a screw inserted. Will be up against the start of 2017.

NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero is reporting Adams received the diagnosis after visiting specialist Dr. Robert Anderson.
That’s a tough break for the 6-foot-4 rookie as he was vying to work his way up the depth chart.
Adams was selected with the 93rd pick in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft.
As a senior, Adams was a first-team All-SEC selection and second-team All-American member last season, as he tallied 44 tackles, 8.5 tackles for loss, 4.5 sacks, one forced fumble, one interception, two blocked kicks, and a touchdown as Auburn’s captain.
Adams was rated by Rivals.com as a 5-star recruit and the 3rd best defensive lineman in his class.
The Packers begin the regular season on Sept. 10 vs. the Seattle Seahawks.
