Davante Adams Criticizes Bills Safety Taylor Rapp for Aggressive Hit in Week 2: ‘Concerns Over Player Safety

Las Vegas Raiders Star Receiver Davante Adams Expresses Concerns After Week 2 Concussion Protocol Entry
Following his Week 2 concussion protocol evaluation, prominent Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams is voicing his dissatisfaction with the circumstances that led to his exit.
In the closing moments of the Raiders’ 38-10 defeat against the Buffalo Bills, Adams was forced to leave the game after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit from Bills safety Taylor Rapp. Rapp, racing towards Adams at full speed, made contact as the receiver was double-covered and descending during a deep pass attempt.
This incident led to Rapp being penalized for unnecessary roughness.
Adams Absent from Game, Clears Concussion Protocol, and Returns to Practice
After being sidelined for the remainder of the game, Davante Adams successfully completed the concussion protocol and rejoined the team for practice on Wednesday. In his Week 2 performance, Adams secured six receptions out of eight targets, tallying 84 yards and contributing a touchdown.
During a press conference on Wednesday, Adams did not mince words when expressing his thoughts on Taylor Rapp and his playing style, as reported by ESPN:

“Was it unnecessary? Completely, obviously,” Adams said. “But, certain players play a certain way, too. Some people, out of control, they fly around, they don’t really have much true purpose out there. I mean, playing a half field on one side, you run over and hit somebody in the head on the other side of the field.

“That’s the kind of stuff that contributes to you not being on the field. That’s why you’re in when you’re blowing us out by 25 at the end of the game. Maybe if that man learns how to play the game the right way, he’ll see the field. Until then, he’ll have to go and live off of plays like that, I guess.”

Taylor Rapp, currently in his fifth NFL season, previously played four seasons with the Los Angeles Rams. After clinching a Super Bowl victory in the 2021 season, Rapp made the transition to the Buffalo Bills during the offseason on a one-year contract worth $1.77 million.
