Eagles right guard Brandon Brooks was hospitalized with an illness Monday, the team announced, and he missed Philadelphia’s 27-13 loss to the Green Bay Packers.
Rookie Isaac Seumalo replaced Brooks in the starting lineup.
This is the latest hit to an already patchwork offensive line. Halapoulivaati Vaitai, who took over at right tackle when Lane Johnson was suspended earlier this season, suffered an MCL sprain against the Seattle Seahawks Nolan Cromwell Youth Jersey last week and did not play Monday. Allen Barbre moved from left guard to right tackle for the Packers game, with Stefen Wisniewski taking his spot at left guard.
The Raiders’ 24-7 halftime lead dissolved into a 32-24 deficit in the fourth quarter before Carr led the Raiders to two late scores for a 35-32 victory to improve first-place Oakland’s record to 9-2 and clinch the franchise’s first winning record since 2002.
Rodgers wouldn’t have thrown Adams’ way 76 times this season if he didn’t trust him. Only Nelson, with 94 targets, has seen the ball more from Rodgers this season. Adams already has consecutive games with double-digit receptions this season – combining for a Packers record 25 catches in back-to-back games against Chicago and Atlanta. Two weeks later, he posted a career best with 156 yards in a loss at Tennessee.
“This is who we saw during training camp,” said fellow Packers receiver Randall Cobb. “This is who we saw when Coach McCarthy called him the MVP. This is who we saw. He got hurt last year. He was playing through a lot of pain, multiple injuries, and he never was quite himself.”
Adams remains close to his mother, who spent the Thanksgiving weekend in Green Bay, and admits they now joke Orlando Pace Youth Jersey about the thrice-broken arm that almost prevented him from returning to the football field.
“Every now and then we’ll talk about that,” Adams said. “But it’s not something that bothers me now.”
Don’t believe him? Go ahead and touch it.
