HENDERSON, Nevada — Las Vegas Raiders All-Pro quarterback Davante Adams limped off the field during cross practice with the San Francisco 49ers on Friday with what appears to be a right leg injury.
Adams was flanked by 49ers’ linebacker Orrin Burkes and cornerback Charvarius Ward during a slanted pattern run early in the team’s 11-on-11 practice and lay down for a minute before being helped to the sidelines. He later walked gingerly into the Raiders locker room and pointed at the calf area.
Raiders coach Josh McDaniels said just after practice that he had not yet received a report on Adams.
“I don’t think it was insanely serious,” McDaniels said. “It was just an exciting play. Totally clean, on both sides.”
Adams, a six-time Pro Bowler who was named first-team All-Pro the past three seasons, had 100 receptions on a career-high 180 goals for 1,516 yards and 14 touchdowns in the NFL last season in Las Vegas, Which acquired him in a blockbuster trade with the Green Bay Packers in March 2022. He’s averaged 113 catches for 1,481 yards and 12 TDs in the past three seasons.
Jacoby Myers, a Raiders wide receiver, said he did not see the play, because he was walking down a path on the other side of the field.
“I just hope he’s healthy,” Myers said. “He brings a lot to this team. We appreciate him and we just want him to get back to himself.”
Adams spoke at the start of camp about how comfortable he felt in the McDaniels system as a sophomore.
“It’s like a whole new world now because you go from saying, ‘How can I not screw this up?'” to “How can I put my own flavor on it and some sort of sauce more to suit me and use my creativity within the ways and schemes to make it so much better?” Adams said at the time. “Instead of just remembering my mission, it goes to another level.”
Adams also talked about playing freshman quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo after the Raiders moved on from Fresno State University quarterback Derek Carr.
“He’s a great guy, easy to talk to, can be persuaded by the coaches and listens to my feedback and the way I see the game as well,” Adams said of Garoppolo after his first training at the camp. “The day was very productive, there was a lot of conversation there, and we just had to keep it going and keep it going to get to where we want to be, of course, in the first week.”
The Raiders, who had two joint practices with the Niners, host their former Bay Area rivals in the two teams’ exhibition opening Sunday at Allegiant Stadium before heading to Los Angeles for a pair of joint practices with the Rams next week and an exhibition game. against them at SoFi Stadium on August 19.
