After the Las Vegas Raiders’ Week 5 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, there were some concerns that Davante Adams would not be available to play in Week 7 against the Houston Texans. After the loss, Adams was seen shoving a sideline cameraman to the ground.
Since then, Adams has been charged with misdemeanor assault and the NFL will let the legal process play out before any possible discipline. And according to Adam Schefter of ESPN, that means Adams will be on the field on Sunday.
It’s possible that Adams and the Raiders won’t hear about any possible discipline until after the season. But as of now, that means their top receiver will be on the field for the foreseeable future. And with the team sitting at 1-4, they certainly need him if they want to get back to .500.
Through five games, Adams has caught 29 passes for 414 yards and five touchdowns. He is coming off his best statistical game of the season, totaling 124 yards and two touchdowns on just three receptions.
