More bad news for Las Vegas Raiders as Davante Adams struggles to train with injury

As if the losing streak wasn’t enough, the Las Vegas Raiders have another set of problems as they head into Week 11. In addition to their already injury-plagued offense, there’s another , with worse consequences. Reports suggest their star receiver Davante Adams just might not make it to this Sunday’s game. The Raiders listed Adams as a limited participant, due to an abdominal injury. Although there is no information on how he suffered the injury, no alarming news has yet come out of the Raiders’ camp.

Adams was on the field for almost every play in their loss to the Indianapolis Colts. Their loss to NFL analyst-turned-coach Jeff Saturday capped a string of disappointing performances. In fact, fans are even calling on the Raiders to fire head coach Josh McDaniels. The only thing saving him right now, it seems, is the team’s abject poverty.

Davante Adams recently found himself making headlines after shoving a photographer after their loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. Although he was charged with misdemeanor assault, the NFL did not suspend him. The following week, after their victory over the Houston Texans, Adams motioned for all the photographers to line up along the tunnel to give him more space. Definitely meant to be a humorous take, right?

This is Adams’ first season with the Raiders after the Green Bay Packers traded him off-season. Since then, the Packers have been hit hard on their offensive front, and Adams’ absence is keenly felt by QB Aaron Rodgers and the rest of the team.

Raiders list Davante Adams as limited training participant, fans worried

While there’s been no concrete news about Adams’ exclusion from Sunday’s game, the possibility of such a scenario has everyone thinking. The Raiders will face the Denver Broncos in their next game, their second meeting with the Broncos this season. Although the Raiders should emerge victorious, it won’t be an easy win. Especially if they lack players like Adams. The Broncos have one of the best pass defenses in the NFL. So the Raiders will feel the heat as Derek Carr will find fewer targets to aim for.

With the two teams battling it out at the bottom of the AFC West, the Raiders have a chance of finding themselves tied with the Broncos (3-7) if they win. All eyes will be on the Raiders’ workouts this week. Adams’ status for Sunday could prove to be the difference between winning and losing against the Broncos.
