Packers wide receiver Davante Adams will miss his second straight game. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur told reporters on Saturday that the star wideout will sit out Monday's matchup against the Lions because of an ongoing toe injury.
Adams sustained the injury during the Packers' Week 4 loss to the Eagles, and it doesn't sound like he's close to returning. We heard yesterday that while Adams is listed as day-to-day, there's no timeline for his return. Adams referred to the toe problem as a "major injury," but he also noted that he won't need surgery.
Following 111 catches for 1,386 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2018, Adams was having another standout campaign through the first four weeks of this season. The 26-year-old had hauled in 25 receptions for 378 yards before the injury.
Fortunately for the Packers, the offense looked fine without Adams during their win last weekend over the Cowboys. While running back Aaron Jones probably won't have another four-touchdown performance, Packers QB Aaron Rodgers will still have plenty of players he can turn to, including Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Geronimo Allison, and Jimmy Graham.
