Monday update: Adams is considered “good” by head coach Josh McDaniels after taking a hard hit to the head against the Bills in Week 2. This should mean he will be ready to go against the Steelers for Sunday Night Football in Week 3.
Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels says WR Davante Adams is "good" after taking a huge hit yesterday.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) September 18, 2023
Meanwhile, WR Jakobi Meyers is "headed in the right direction" as he progresses through the concussion protocol.
Update: Adams is being evaluated for a concussion. The Raiders lost to the Bills in Week 2, but the garbage time injury to Vegas’ top wide receiver could have him in question for next week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Update: Adams is heading to the locker room for further evaluation. This game is over, so we will look for an update from the team’s postgame press conference.
And Davante Adams has now been taken the locker room. Brutal.— Field Yates (@FieldYates) September 17, 2023
The Las Vegas Raiders are on the road taking on the Buffalo Bills. The game is getting out of hand on the scoreboard, but to add injury to insult, star wide receiver Davante Adams took a big helmet-to-helmet hit and is heading to the medical tent for evaluation. With the score the way it is, he is likely done for the day.
After a big Week 1 win, it’s been a bad second game of the season for Las Vegas. Jimmy Garoppolo has completed 16 passes for only 185 yards, with a touchdown and two interceptions. Adams brought in six of his eight targets for 84 yards and a touchdown. With Jakobi Meyers missing the game with a concussion, the Raiders are thin at wide receiver. Las Vegas and Garoppolo will turn to Hunter Renfrow, DeAndre Carter, Tre Tucker and tight end Austin Hooper the rest of the way in this one.
