Wide receiver Davante Adams of the Las Vegas Raiders has been injured during a practice session today, the exact kind of thing that the team absolutely does not need right now as they continue preparations for the upcoming NFL season.
He is easily the Las Vegas Raiders' biggest WR threat
Easily the most important receiver on the Raiders, he led the NFL last season touchdown receptions (14) while also catching 100 passes for a whopping 1,516 yards. He made his way to the Raiders before last season after being dealt from the Green Bay Packers.
Today, Davante Adams injured and limped off the field during Raiders practice
According to multiple reports, he limped off the field during a practice session earlier today; the injury occurred on the first play of team drills.
Whether or not he is going to be available for Sunday's pre-season opener against the San Francisco 49ers remains to be seen. But if he's injured badly enough that he's forced to miss a significant period of time, it would create a massive hole in the Raiders offense and put them behind the 8-ball immediately.
However, the good news that was just released is that the team doesn't believe the injury to be of a serious nature.
TL;DR (too long didn't read)
- Davante Adams is the top wide receiver for the Las Vegas Raiders and led the NFL in touchdown receptions last season; he was acquired in a 2022 trade with the Packers.
- During today's practice, he was injured on the first play of team drills
- He limped off the field, immediately causing concern amongst the rest of his team and the Raiders fan base
Bottom Line: Here's hoping Adams is okay
You never want to see an opposition player get injured, especially one of Adams' caliber in today's NFL.
We send our best wishes for a speedy recovery so that he can be back out on the field as soon as possible.
