The Green Bay Packers went to the nation's capital this past weekend to defeat the Washington Redskins in the wild-card round of the playoffs, but it came at a price.
One of their wide receivers, Davante Adams, who has been struggling with catches all season, had one of the best games he's had in some time, racking up 48 receiving yards from four receptions, and a touchdown.
Unfortunately, the 23-year-old may not have the opportunity to continue this good form this weekend in the divisional rounds against the Arizona Cardinals.

Adams originally left the game against the Redskins early due to a knee injury, and that injury now has been evaluated to be an MCL sprain, according to ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
Despite the wide receiver saying after the game that he had felt he'd avoided a major injury, the sprain will likely keep him out of the Packers' divisional round clash. It should only keep him out for one week, but it is still unknown how badly the MCL injury is at the moment.
There was a lot of hype surrounding Adams entering the season, as the Packers' number one wideout Jordy Nelson was ruled out for the year due to a torn ACL, but he failed to live up to that expectation and was largely disappointing throughout 2015.
Just as he looked like he was about to shine, the 23-year-old has come across another roadblock in his developing NFL career, and he may have played his last game until the 2016 season.
Most MCL injuries don't require surgery, so we could see him once again this year if the Packers advance in the playoffs.
