GREEN BAY – Packers receiver Davante Adams has officially been listed as questionable for Sunday's matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers.

Green Bay has also listed tight end Robert Tonyan as questionable and removed 20 others from the injury report who are expected to play.

Adams, who has missed four games with turf toe, practiced this week for the first time since suffering the injury against Philadelphia on Sept. 26.

Head Coach Matt LaFleur said Adams looked good in practice this week but the team will wait until "90 minutes before kickoff" to make a final determination on his availability.

"I always think Davante's bouncing around, has a great personality, and is excited to be out there," said LaFleur at his Friday post-practice news conference. "But certainly when you're actually taking reps in practice, I think it probably gave him a little more juice. I think when you have something that's taken away from you, you might appreciate it a little bit more when you are out there."

The two-time Pro Bowl receiver told reporters on Wednesday he feels good but wasn't making any predictions about his availability for Sunday.

"I feel good," said Adams on Wednesday. "I feel like I'm in a spot where I can make that call for myself. But I've got to collab with (the doctors) and see how they're feeling and look at it one more time and then we'll make that call."

Tonyan has missed three games after injuring his hip on a 23-yard catch against Dallas on Oct. 6. He practiced in a limited capacity this week.

Tackle Bryan Bulaga (finger) was among the 20 players the Packers removed from the injury report who are expected to play.

Bulaga dislocated his finger on a helmet in the second half last Sunday against Kansas City but breathed a sigh of relief when initial X-rays confirmed "it wasn't as bad as it looked."

After some trial-and-error, Bulaga and the training staff built a splint that he practiced with this week.

"I think we've brainstormed a lot of things and tried a lot of things and I think what we did (Thursday) is probably what we're going to do for the game," Bulaga said. "While it's not perfect, I don't think anything's going to be perfect. The only thing that would be perfect would be not having to do what we're going to do. But we're in the situation we're in and we'll just deal with it."

Besides Bulaga, the Packers removed the following players from the injury report: quarterback Aaron Rodgers (knee), running back Aaron Jones (shoulder), fullback Danny Vitale (knee), receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (ankle/knee), tight ends Jimmy Graham (ankle) and Marcedes Lewis (veteran rest), center Corey Linsley (back), tackle David Bakhtiari (rib), defensive lineman Kenny Clark (shin), linebackers Za'Darius Smith (rib), Preston Smith (hip), Rashan Gary (shoulder), Blake Martinez (hand/shoulder) and Oren Burks (chest), cornerbacks Kevin King (groin) and Tramon Williams (knee), safeties Adrian Amos (shoulder), Darnell Savage (ankle), and Will Redmond (ankle/elbow).

The Chargers ruled out defensive tackle Cortez Broughton (illness), while defensive tackles Brandon Mebane (knee) and Justin Jones (shoulder), and safety Roderic Teamer are all doubtful.
