Davante Adams reacts to Packers’ win over Raiders
While Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams had to sit on the sidelines for his team’s Week 7 matchup against the Oakland Raiders, he is still expressing pride over the lopsided victory for the Pack.
The two-time Pro-Bowl wideout tweeted “So proud of my boys man,” and “Can’t wait to be back with y’all!”
So proud of my boys man. Cant wait to be back with yall!

Adams has been out with turf toe—an injury he suffered in Green Bay’s Week 4 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. In the same game, the 26-year-old receiver recorded 10 receptions for 180 yards. However, a late toe ailment took him out of the bout, which ended in a seven-point loss for the Packers.
Meanwhile the Packers had key contributions from another questionable wide receiver, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, the 6-foot-4 wideout who was a gametime decision. The 25-year-old ended up playing for Green Bay and turned up huge with Adams out again; Valdes-Scantling made two receptions for 133 yards, scoring one of star quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ five passing touchdowns on Sunday. Rodgers rushed for another touchdown and accounted for all six of Green Bay’s scores in its blowout home win over the Oakland Raiders, 42-24.
Despite Adams’ toe injury, the Packers have cruised since he left late in Week 4, winning three consecutive contests before next week’s matchup with the Kansas City Chiefs, who will likely be without last year’s NFL MVP quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
While Adams is elated about his team’s on-field performance in his absence, Rodgers’ number-one receiving option cannot be back soon enough to actually participate in the winning streak.
