Adams says he's fine



Gaines Adams returned to practice today and pronounced himself healthy and ready to go on Sunday at Detroit. The first-round draft pick had been limited on Thursday because of a chest injury, but coach Jon Gruden said the No. 4 overall selection participated fully in Friday's workout. Adams dismissed the injury as no big deal when asked.

As for the rest of the week's final injury report, tight end Alex Smith is questionable with that ankle injury, but he hasn't practiced all week. It would be a mild surprise if he was able to suit on Sunday. Listed as doubtful are cornerback Brian Kelly (groin) and defensive end Patrick Chukwurah (shoulder).
