Matt LaFleur downplays severity of Davante Adams’ hamstring injury

The second half of Sunday’s game saw the Packers outscore the Lions 25-7 en route to a 42-14 victory that moved them to 2-0 on the season.

While things looked great on the scoreboard, it wasn’t all positives for the Packers after halftime. Wide receiver Davante Adams left the game with a hamstring injury and did not return.

Monday saw a lot of bad injury news delivered around the league, but Adams was not on that list. Packers head coach Matt LaFleur gave a positive update about the wideout’s condition during his press conference.

“I know he wanted to go back in the game,” LaFleur said, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “I just told him, ‘Hey, let’s see how these next few series go, and see if we need you’ Obviously, he’s a huge part of what we do offensively and a key member of this football team. If we don’t need him, we didn’t want to put him back in a position to do further harm to his own body.”

Wednesday’s practice report will provide another update to Adams’ condition. If he’s on the field, it will be another good sign for his availability against the Saints in Week Three.

  1. Glad LaFleur held Davante out the rest of the Detroit game. The Pack didn’t need to put 60 up on Detroit.

    The Saints now feel in must win mode, so the Packers will get their best shot Sunday Nite. I wouldn’t be surprised if Davante doesn’t practice on Wednesday, to be on the safe side. If he practices Friday, then that will be when you know he is good to go for Sunday Nite Football.

    ariani1985 — you are priceless!! It just makes you bonkers that the Packers are once again the class of the NFC North.

  3. The Packers will need him against the Saints who got whipped by the Raiders,THE RAIDERS! if a Vegas TE can catch 12 passes from Carr the Packers recievers together can snag twenty passes from Aaron Rodgers and Adams will have ten.

    Those hammies don’t linger, do they?

    ++++++

    They do when your star wideout feels the depth behind him is so weak that he feels obligated to rush back, and re-injures himself. Like Thielen did, just last year.

    Luckily the Pack are off 2-0, and recall going 4-0 without Adams last season (when they were worse).

    Tough stretch 4 road games in next 6 ahead including @ Saints, @ Bucs and @ depleting 49ers. Luckily a creampuff or two mixed in.
