Packers WR Davante Adams leaves game with ankle injury, returns later

Monday September 21st, 2015

Packers receiver Davante Adams left Sunday’s game against the Seahawks with an ankle injury in the second quarter but returned for Green Bay’s first series of the second half.

When Adams was injured, he was taken to the locker room on a cart with one shoe off. 

Adams caught four passes for 27 yards before he was injured. Green Bay’s depth chart lists him as a starter opposite Randall Cobb

The Packers expect Adams to play an increased role this year due to the loss of Jordy Nelson. He caught four passes for 59 yards in Green Bay’s season-opening win over the Bears.

Packers running back Eddie Lacy was taken to the locker room with an ankle injury earlier in the game.
