In 2019, Green Bay has been able to win the six games in which the star wide receiver has not been able to participate due to injury
GREEN BAY – Aaron Rodgers, quarterback of the Green bay packers, finds it difficult to explain the remarkable level of success when Davante adams does not participate in team matches.
Adams has missed six games since 2019 due to injuries and the Packers have won each one.
It is very likely that they will have to play one more time without Adams Thursday night visiting the Arizona cardinals (7-0) now that the receiver All-Pro was placed in the COVID-19 list, in which his partner also entered Allen lazard on Tuesday.
“We are not a better team without him, that is a fact. I would have to review each of those games well, but we just found a way to win them, “he said. Rodgers, who has spoken with Adams since Monday, when the news was released.
“It seems that everything is going very well from the point of view of his health. He’s obviously disappointed, ”he commented.
None of the encounters that Green bay won without the presence of Adams they represented a challenge like the one to come. The Packers (6-1) have a short week to prepare for a road match against the only undefeated team in the NFL, the Cardinals (7-0).
Because Adams went to the list of COVID-19 on Monday, you could only play on Thursday if you return two negative tests on consecutive days. It is the same case with the defensive coordinator Joe Barry, who tested positive this week.
“We understand that we have a very difficult opponent in our next game, and obviously we would like to be complete,” said the receiver. Randall Cobb. “His presence is going to be missed, but it is important for us to go out and play and find a way to win the game.”
That’s what the Packers have accomplished the other times they were without Adams in recent times. Rodgers He recalled the way other players often show their faces to make big plays in those games.
For instance, Lazard, who most likely won’t be able to play Thursday either, had six receptions for 146 yards and a touchdown when the Packers defeated 37-30 New Orleans Saints without Adams last year. A week later, it was tight end Robert Tonyan who scored three times in the 30-16 victory over the Atlanta Falcons, when Davante could not play.
