Packers star WR Davante Adams says he is not ‘quite there yet’

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams made his return from a toe injury this past Sunday, logging seven catches for 41 yards in a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers.

Adams had been sidelined since Week 5 and is still not 100 percent, and on Wednesday, he said he is not himself just yet.

“It gets beat up a little bit, but it’s definitely no setbacks. Nothing like that,” Adams said of his toe, according to Ryan Wood, Jim Owczarski and Tom Silverstein of Packers News. “We just want to be smart so I can heal up and continue to get better and better. I’m obviously healed at this point, but as far as being a thousand percent back to myself, I wouldn’t quite say I’m quite there yet.”

The Packers actually won all four games in which Adams did not play, and while Aaron Rodgers understands the importance of getting Adams going, he also says that Green Bay needs to stick to its winning formula.

“We’d love to get Davante going, but we can’t get away from what’s got us to this point, especially the last three, four games before last Sunday,” said Rodgers.

In five games this season, Adams has tallied 32 catches for 419 yards. He is yet to score a touchdown.

The 26-year-old, who played his collegiate football at Fresno State, is now in his sixth NFL season. He is coming off of back-to-back Pro Bowl appearances, most recently hauling in 111 receptions for 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2018.

The Packers are 7-2 on the year and will take on the Carolina Panthers this weekend.
