Davante Adams is set to miss his second-straight game. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters that the star wideout will sit out Monday’s matchup against the Lions.
Adams originally suffered the injury during the Packers Week 4 loss to the Eagles, but it doesn’t sound like he’s very close to returning. We heard yesterday that while Adams is listed as day-to-day with the toe ailment, there’s no definitive timeline for his return. The receiver himself referred to it as a “major injury,” but he also noted that he won’t need surgery.
Following a 2018 campaign that saw him haul in 111 catches for 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns, Adams was having another standout campaign through the first four weeks of this season. The 26-year-old had hauled in 25 receptions for 378 yards and zero scores before suffering his injury.
Fortunately for the Packers, the offense looked fine without Adams during their win last weekend over the Cowboys. While Aaron Jones probably won’t have another four-touchdown performance, Aaron Rodgers will still have plenty of players he can turn to, including Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Geronimo Allison, and Jimmy Graham.
