Davante Adams had Raiders fans scared everywhere after he headed to the locker room during Friday’s practice after sustaining what appeared to be a right leg injury, Vincent Bonsignore of the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported.
Adams likely avoided a serious injury despite leaving Friday’s practice with an apparent leg injury.
Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels put everyone at ease when he informed reporters Adams didn’t have a “serious” injury despite being seen walking to the locker room with a slight limp in his right leg.
“I don’t think it was crazy serious. It was a bang-bang play,” McDaniels said after Friday’s practice.
The injury occurred when Adams took a hit from San Francisco 49ers linebacker Oren Burks during a joint practice.
Adams, who joined Las Vegas last year in a blockbuster trade from the Green Bay Packers, caught 100 passes for 1,516 yards and 14 touchdowns during his first campaign with the team. The 30-year-old has led the NFL in TD receptions in two of the last three seasons.
He was supposed to reunite with his college QB in Derek Carr, but the reunion only lasted 15 games as the Raiders benched him for the final few weeks and then released him during the offseason.
The Las Vegas Raiders would go on to sign Jimmy Garoppolo to a three-year, $72.75 million contract. Garoppolo’s injury history is well known, and it’s clear he must stay healthy for the Raiders to succeed in 2023.
