Packers WR Davante Adams says he has turf toe injury
Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams says he suffered a turf toe injury in the team’s 34-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday Night Football. Adams suffered the injury in the fourth quarter and didn’t finish the game.
Prior to the injury, Adams had been having a terrific game. Despite missing the last 10 minutes, he still finished with 10 catches for 180 receiving yards — a new career-high.
“It sucks,” Adams said per Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “You feel like in situations like that, you let the team down. Obviously I would’ve been out there if I could, but I’m in a little bit of pain, and it was tough. With a toe injury and the type of player I am — what my game is based on is explosion and things like that, so if I can’t get out there and really do my thing how I want and I’m in a lot of pain, I’m sure my teammates understand that.”
Adams is expected to undergo additional tests Friday. The Packers don’t play again until Oct. 6 against the Dallas Cowboys, which will give Adams extra time to recover.
But if Adams is forced to miss game time, the Packers will have to count on the likes of Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Geronimo Allison, and Jimmy Graham to step up as Aaron Rodgers’ main receiving targets.
Aside from Adams, the Packers also lost running back Jamaal Williams, who was taken to a local hospital for observation following head and neck injuries, and right tackle Bryan Bulaga due to a shoulder injury.
