Davante Adams wasn’t too happy with the hit he took Sunday in the Raiders’ game against the Bills.
Late in the game, with the Raiders trying to make it 38-10, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo threw a deep ball over the middle of the field to Adams, but cornerback Cam Lewis broke up the pass before safety Taylor Rapp does not hit Adams with his helmet. the left side of the receiver’s helmet.
Adams fell and left the game, while Lewis was flagged for unnecessary roughness.
On Wednesday, Adams talked about the play and how he didn’t find the hit necessary at all.
“Was it unnecessary?” Completely, obviously,” Adams said, according to ESPN. “But some players also play in a certain way. Some people, uncontrollable, fly everywhere, without really having a real objective. I mean, playing half court on one side, you run over and hit someone in the head on the other side of the court.
“Those are the kinds of things that contribute to you not being on the field. That’s why you’re here when you blow us by 25 at the end of the game. Maybe if this man learns to play correctly, he’ll see the field. Until then he’ll have to live on plays like that, I suppose.
Adams, who entered the concussion protocol after the hit, was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice.
The three-time All-Pro has 12 catches (one touchdown) for 150 receiving yards in two games this season.
Rapp is in his first season with Buffalo after spending four years with the Rams.
He has six total tackles and one fumble recovery so far this year in two weeks with the Bills.
