GREEN BAY, Wis. (WBAY) - Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams returned to the practice field Thursday after missing last Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints.

Adams injured his hamstring in week two in a 42-21 win over the Detroit Lions.

“I’m going to make sure I’m 100-percent before I’m back out there,” Adams said Thursday. " It makes it easier for me to not feel rushed to come back. The type of attention to detail they’ve come with and the way they are finishing practice -- just the next step I can see a lot of guys have taken. Last year, I may have been trying to rush back a little bit quicker but it makes it a lot easier to make sure I get all the way right before I come back."

Allen Lazard, the Packers leading receiver in Sunday’s 37-30 win against New Orleans, was not at practice. Lazard missed practice due to a core injury. ESPN’s Rob Demovsky says Lazard plans to see a core muscle specialist to determine of surgery is needed.

Packers defensive tackle Kenny Clark, who missed the Saints game due to a groin injury, was at practice on Thursday. Other notables who were unable to practice: linebacker Christian Kirksey (pectoral), tight end Marcedes Lewis (knee).

Rookie tight end Josiah Deguara (ankle) and outside linebacker Rashan Gary (ankle) stretched with the team but did not practice according to multiple reports.

Kirksey is expected to miss games after sustaining a pectoral injury against New Orleans Saints.

The Packers play the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football at 7:20 p.m. on ESPN.
