The Green Bay Packers have downgraded wide receiver Davante Adams to doubtful for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers at Lambeau Field because of an ankle injury.

Adams (nine receptions, 92 yards this season) did not make it through the last two games.

Rookie Ty Montgomery, who caught his first career touchdown pass in Green Bay's 38-28 victory over Kansas City on Monday, is expected to receive more playing time.

The Packers also downgraded Morgan Burnett (calf) as the safety joins linebacker Jake Ryan (hamstring) and defensive back Demetri Goodson (hamstring) on the doubtful list.

Green Bay tackle Bryan Bulaga will miss his third straight game because of a knee injury.

Packers add WR Abbrederis to active roster

The Packers on Saturday signed wide receiver Jared Abbrederis to the active roster from the practice squad and released defensive tackle Bruce Gaston.

The extra wide receiver was needed with Davante Adams (ankle) having been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday's game in San Francisco.

Abbrederis, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound second-year player out of the University of Wisconsin, was originally drafted by the Packers with their second of two fifth-round picks in the 2014 NFL Draft. He spent last season on injured reserve after suffering a knee injury in training camp.

Abbrederis was released by Green Bay on Sept. 5 and has been on the Packers' practice squad since signing on Sept. 7.
