Davante Adams sends heartfelt message to Aaron Rodgers over his Achilles injury
Aaron Rodgers’ injury surprised everybody. After only three plays, the quarterback suffered an Achilles injury, ending his 2023 season and putting the Jets in serious problems for the rest of the year.
Several members of the NFL reacted to the news, including Davante Adams. The wideout, who played alongside Rodgers for eight years in the Packers, revealed the heartfelt message he sent to his former teammate following his injury.
“Really tough, man,” Adams said on Wednesday in a press conference. “I didn’t want to really take to social media because I spoke to him directly and reached out immediately. I was watching it on the plane as we were on the way over here. And it’s like a horrible movie, you don’t want to see the main character go down like that at all, let alone as early as what it was. And I know he was excited and I was definitely excited to see him go out there and ball out. I know he was feeling rejuvenated and excited about the opportunity to work with a really good team, so it sucks.
“That’s my guy though, so I let him know basically I’m here for him in whatever way that I can. I don’t know what I can do to make him feel better at this point, especially obviously with us being in season now as well, but like I said, it sucks and I’m just praying that his mental is in a good spot right now and he continues to overcome it, and obviously that team as well.”
