Packers WR Davante Adams misses second straight practice due to toe injury
Before going down with a toe injury that left him unable to take the field for Green Bay’s last-minute drive against the Philadelphia Eagles, Packers wide receiver Davante Adams was in the midst of his breakout game of the season.
Hauling in 10 of his 15 targets for 180 yards, quarterback Aaron Rodgers delivered on his promise to get Adams more involve in the offense. Unfortunately, Adams suffered a turf toe injury in the fourth quarter of that game and has missed two straight practices because of it.
For the second consecutive day, Packers’ WR Davante Adams missed practice with his toe injury.

If Adams is unable to go, we shall see how Rodgers and the Packers passing attack fares. Coming into the season, Adams was one of, if not the most, hyped receiver in the league as many projected the connection between him and Rodgers would be scary now with Matt LaFleur at the helm.
Although being 3-1, the Packers have not looked as intimidating as many would have thought. The disappointment of their running game is affecting how Rodgers manages the game and could explain the play calling on that final drive against the Eagles.
With a Cowboys team coming off a loss, which many thought exposed Dallas’ weaknesses for the first time this season, both teams will be looking to prove a point in Sunday’s matchup.
Both will have banged up receivers as well with Michael Gallup not likely to play just yet for Dallas and Adams’ probability not looking good.
