Packers QB Aaron Rodgers speaks out on Davante Adams being out vs. Cowboys
The Green Bay Packers’ offense has been struggling as it is, so the last thing they needed was an injury to one of their key players.
But, that’s exactly what happened last Thursday, as wide receiver Davante Adams suffered a toe injury during the Packers’ loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and will be sidelined for Green Bay’s showdown with the Dallas Cowboys this Sunday as a result.
On Wednesday, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers spoke about Adams’ absence.

Rodgers states that his confidence in himself should help him play well, which should then, in turn, assist his receivers in increasing their level of performance.
The veteran also stresses how important communication is, not just on the field, but also in practice, the locker room and the meeting room.
But regardless of how confident Rodgers is, losing Adams has to sting.
This is an offense that currently ranks 20th in the NFL in yardage and 17th in scoring, so take away Rodgers’ best and most reliable weapon, and the offense looks that much worse.
Complicating matters is the fact that the Packers will be facing a Cowboys defense that ranks seventh in the league and is giving up just 14 points per game, so Rodgers will need to be at his very best for Green Bay’s offense to even have a chance.
The Packers have gotten off to a 3-1 start on the season, suffering their first loss against the Eagles last week, but some feel that Green Bay’s strong start has been smoke and mirrors.
We’ll get to see just how good the Packers are this weekend against Dallas. Well, as good as they can be without Adams.
