Davante Adams caught 5-of-10 targets for 54 yards and one touchdown in the Packers' Week 6 loss to the Vikings.
Adams found himself in Xavier Rhodes' coverage a lot of the day, but was able to sneak loose for a wide-open touchdown when Rhodes wasn't on him. Adams is a touchdown machine but will find things tougher moving forward with no Aaron Rodgers (collarbone) and Brett Hundley at quarterback. Adams will be on the WR2/3 borderline next week at home against the Saints. Oct 15 - 5:18 PM

Davante Adams hauled in 7-of-11 targets for 66 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers' Week 5 win over the Cowboys.

Adams did not show any ill effects from the big hit and concussion last week, leading the team with four catches in the first half including a 10-yard touchdown on a beautiful throw from Aaron Rodgers. He did not have much to do most of the second half, but he came alive on the final drive, opening it with a 14-yard catch and coming down with the 12-yard score to win the game. Adams now has four touchdowns in five games this season. Jordy Nelson was not on the field for the final drive, and while the Packers did not announce an injury after the game, Nelson missing time would boost Adams' fantasy value. Either way, Adams will be a solid WR2 next week in Minnesota.
Oct 8 - 8:09 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) is active for Week 5 against the Cowboys.

This was expected after he cleared the protocol on Saturday. Adams is not going to win the yardage title, but he is a threat to score every week. In a plus matchup against the Cowboys, he is a solid WR2.
Oct 8 - 2:59 PM

Davante Adams has cleared the concussion protocol and is expected to play in Sunday's game with Dallas.

Adams won't miss any time despite getting stretched off on a helmet-to-helmet hit last week. He had been trending toward playing after traveling with the team on Saturday. Adams is off to a slow start, but has at least 60 yards or a touchdown in three-of-four games. He's in a plus Week 5 spot against an injured Dallas secondary.
Oct 7 - 2:30 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) traveled with the team to Dallas.

It is not clear if Adams has completed the protocol, but this is a good sign for his availability against the Cowboys. If he plays, Adams will be worth starting in a good matchup against the Dallas secondary.
Oct 7 - 2:02 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) is questionable for Week 5 against the Cowboys.

Adams was a limited participant at all three practices this week, a relative shock given the menacing helmet-to-helmet hit he took last week against the Bears. There are still hurdles to clear, however, as Adams has yet to officially clear the concussion protocol. Sunday's game in Dallas kicks off at 4:25 PM ET.
Oct 6 - 4:17 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Coach Mike McCarthy said on Friday that Adams needs to be cleared by the time the Packers get on the plane to head to Dallas, which will either be this afternoon or tomorrow. Adams has been practicing on a limited basis this week, but he still has a hurdle to clear likely with an independent neurologist that needs to clear him. Geronimo Allison would benefit if Adams sits.
Oct 6 - 12:08 PM

Davante Adams (concussion) remained "limited" in Thursday's practice.

Adams is trending in the right direction, but his Week 5 availability should not be taken for granted. We should officially learn his status when the Packers release their Friday injury report. Adams will be an upside WR3 if he suits up.
Oct 5 - 4:19 PM

Packers coach Mike McCarthy said Davante Adams remains in the concussion protocol but will do more on the practice field Thursday.

Adams was able to get in a limited session on Wednesday. Nothing can be taken for granted, but it seems like the receiver is trending toward playing against the Cowboys. If he does, he will be a solid WR2 in what should be a high-scoring game.
Oct 5 - 11:42 AM

Davante Adams (concussion) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

It's a miracle that Adams is back on the field already after taking a devastating and highly illegal hit from Bears LB Danny Trevathan last Thursday night. Adams remains in the concussion protocol but it's looking like he has a real shot to suit up Sunday versus Dallas. He totaled seven catches for 110 yards in two games (postseason included) against the Cowboys last season.
Oct 4 - 5:07 PM

Davante Adams remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Coach Mike McCarthy said Adams will be limited in Wednesday's practice and see how he responds. Adams is surprisingly even in the mix to suit up Sunday against Dallas after taking a thundering hit to the head and neck from Bears ILB Danny Trevathan last Thursday. We'll have a better idea on Adams come Friday.
Oct 4 - 12:29 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Davante Adams (concussion) could suit up for Week 5.

An MRI on Adams' neck came back clean, so he's "only" dealing with the concussion. Adams suffered a concussion on a Sunday last season then somehow suited up for Thursday Night Football four days later. This is a different situation, as he's had a long week to heal. Adams will be in the WR2/3 mix if he's active against the Cowboys.
Oct 3 - 1:41 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports Davante Adams' (neck) MRI came back clean.

Adams has been diagnosed with a concussion, so it appears he avoided a serious neck injury. All things considered, it's relatively good news for Adams, though concussions are no small matter. Consider Adams week to week. Geronimo Allison is a receiver to pick up on waivers next week.
Sep 29 - 11:05 AM

Speaking after Thursday's win over the Bears, Packers coach Mike McCarthy said "everything looks positive" for Davante Adams (concussion, neck).

Adams was strapped to a gurney and taken to the hospital following a savage helmet-to-helmet hit from Danny Trevathan. "The news that I was given on Davante, so far, everything looks positive," were McCarthy's exact words. "He’s already giving them a hard time at the hospital to get out of there so that’s a great sign." It's still unknown if Adams has been officially diagnosed with a concussion, but it's hard to see how he could have avoided it. His status will be updated on Friday.
Sep 29 - 1:08 AM

Davante Adams was forced from Green Bay's Week 4 game against the Bears with a head injury, and will not return.

In the scrum at the end of a third down screen, Adams was missiled in helmet-to-helmet fashion by Bears ILB Danny Trevathan. It was a sickening, unnecessary hit, one that had Adams' panicked teammates immediately calling for the training stuff. Adams was immobilized and taken off the field on a gurney. He did manage to give the Lambeau Field crowd a thumbs up before leaving in an ambulance. He's being evaluated for a concussion and neck injury. Adams had two catches for 13 yards and a touchdown before going down. He had a second score wiped out by a holding penalty one play before the hit that injured him.
