As of about a week ago, Davante Adams is now the proud of father of a baby girl named Daija. Adams had a pretty good night this past Thursday against the Philadelphia Eagles with 10 catches totaling 180-yards. Packers fans know how well of a motivator family is for a player when thinking back to Brett Favre playing one of his best Monday Night Football games of his career following the death of his father. Fortunately for Adams, this was a celebration of a new life.
There was some concern towards Adams possibly having a turf toe injury during the game against the Eagles in the fourth quarter. During a post-game interview, he was holding his right shoe in his hand and, when asked, confirmed it was because of a painful toe. Fortunately, after seeing a specialist in Green Bay, it turns out not to be that serious and shouldn’t hold him back much going forward. He has until October 6th to heal up for a game against the Dallas Cowboys.
“As far as long term, it’s tough to say right now,” Packers coach Matt LaFleur said Friday when asked about the prognosis for Adams. “But, you know, it’s going to be an opportunity, whether he’s able to go or not. It’s going to provide some other guys some opportunities and they’re going to have to step up, and next man up.”
