Davante Adams says toe “doesn’t feel how I want it to feel at the moment”

Packers receiver Davante Adams doesn’t sounds as if he will return this week.

Adams hasn’t played or practiced since Sept. 27 because of turf toe.

He remained out Thursday.

“It doesn’t feel how I want it to feel at the moment,” Adams said Thursday in his first comments since the night of the injury, via Rob Demovsky of ESPN. “But we definitely have time, so we’ll just kind of playing this thing [out].”

Adams called the sprained ligaments in his right big toe a “major injury.”

Although coach Matt LaFleur said Thursday that Adams is “getting a little better each and every day,” the Packers are going to take a deliberate approach in the receiver’s return.

“You can come back and make it worse or have it linger throughout the season,” Adams said.

The Packers completed only four passes to their wideouts Sunday, their fewest in a win since 2001, according to ESPN Stats & Information.

  1. We love this guy here in Wisconsin. He’s our best player now that Aaron is past his prime.
    We’ve missed him while he’s been out, but we’ll never forget you, Dave. Please hurry back.

    That doesn’t sound like the vaunted Packer’s WR depth I’ve been hearing about all off-season. Maybe if someone puts it in list form it will help.

  3. Some are getting a little dramatic about this. We will wait and see what happens this week. It could be a gametime decision.

    If Davante can’t go this week, it is not the end of the world. It doesn’t mean there is a risk to his career here.

    Turf Toe is a sprain to a joint in the big toe. Not all turf toe injuries are the same. It does require surgery in some cases and could end a sports career in a severe case. Davante DOES NOT have a severe situation here and he DOES NOT require surgery.

    The Packers are being cautious with it and want to make sure that he doesn’t play on it too soon where it could then become a longer term problem.

    Getting better each day as LaFleur said. Again, let’s wait and see what happens.

  4. Turf toe is messed up ligaments … it’s not like he smacked his toe on a nightstand. I got it 39 years ago as a 21-year-old college freshman and that left toe is STILL a reminder of my all too forgettable college football career. Some days I have problems getting a dress shoe on without nearly unlacing my entire shoe.

  5. “Defense is prob the best Belichick has had.”

    Funny how Patricia leaves and the Patriots defense gets exponentially better. One thing for sure, Patricia is not a HC, the Lions losing streak begins Monday night now that their cupcake schedule is over finally into week six.

    Nine different players receiving passes isn’t deep enough for you? It’s not as deep as we are inside your head, but deep enough.

  7. Easy win for the Packers, they were easy to beat last year. This year they have a good defense and running game. Stafford is going to be real nervous on the national tv stage, the pressure will get to him and he will throw picks or fumble the ball under heavy pressure. He’s just like Cutler when the pressure is on.

    Also please don’t forget that Stafford has been on the Lions for over a decade and has zero playoff wins.

  8. I wish my Vikes had this guy. He doesn’t fake illness to get out of practice, and he doesn’t cry like a huge baby when he doesn’t get the ball thrown his way. Or take off his helmet after scoring a TD in garbage time.

    Basically, he’s much better than anyone on our team. Literally everyone.

    Well they traded Trevor Davis, EQ is still on IR, and now we don’t have Davante Adams. That’s three of our top 5 receivers to start the season. We will have 5 capable receivers (not that you care enough to read the list anyway) but I can assure you one thing, we don’t have Kirk Cousins at QB. Only he would be able to have a great running game two good receivers between Diggs and Theilen still manage to be horrible.

  10. ” Stafford is going to be real nervous on the national tv stage, the pressure will get to him and he will throw picks or fumble the ball under heavy pressure. He’s just like Cutler when the pressure is on.”

    Completely agree, Stafford has done little to nothing for him to be considered a strong leader or top QB in the NFL for the duration of his NFL career. He is always just teetering on the mediocre level of the QB scale.

    Nice! But don’t forget Rodgers pedestrian 4th quarter qbr. With that qbr and our horrid wr depth there’s no chance of another win this season.

    I think he was talking specifically about wide receiver depth. How many of those nine players receiving passes were wide receivers? Three. They combined for four receptions on 12 targets. That doesn’t sound like great WR depth to me.

    Pardon me. I thought the Packers beat the favored Cowboys with the No.1 ranked offense and the No. 6 ranked defense, on the road, in prime time.

    Scoreboard.
