Early in the second quarter, the Raiders got perhaps the worst possible scenario. Davante Adams went down on an attempted completion on a pass behind him from Aidan O’Connell and didn’t get back up.
Davante eventually did get up, but he was not moving his right arm, which suggests a shoulder injury. He wasn’t even taken to a medical tent, but immediately headed for the tunnel.
Shortly after, he was officially ruled Questionable to return with a shoulder injury.
Obviously it’s a huge loss for the Raiders, even if just for the rest of this game. It’s far more significant a loss if the injury keeps Adams out for considerable time.
Adams leads the Raiders in receiving by a wide margin. His 322 yards is twice that of Jakobi Meyers who has the next most yards receiving on the team.
UPDATE: Adams returned to the game just prior to the end of the first half and Raider Nation breathes a collective sigh of relief.
