Davante Adams returned to the Green Bay Packers lineup, less than two weeks since being knocked out of the Bears game with a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit from Chicago’s Danny Trevathan that led to a concussion, not to mention a night in the hospital.
Adams was cleared from the Packers concussion protocol on Friday and Aaron Rodgers didn’t waste any time getting his wide receiver back into the mix. Rodgers went to Adams for a short completion (7 yards) on the very first offensive play for the Packers. Adams went on to finish with seven receptions for 66 yards and two touchdowns.
Adams would wind up catching the games first and last touchdown passes, the final of which came from 12 yards out and 11-seconds to play, to lift the Packers to a 35-31 victory over the Dallas Cowboys.
Rodgers threw twice at the end to Adams with the first of the two off the mark. Adams returned to the line of scrimmage and motioned to Rodgers to throw it again his way.
