Winnipeg Blue Bombers receiver Darvin Adams hit the turf at practice on Tuesday.

According to Bonfire Sports reporter Darrin Bauming: Darvin Adams went down awkwardly after making a catch during 12-on-12 drills today. Bombers teammates appeared extremely concerned. Adams is currently getting assessed by team therapist Al Couture. From my distant vantage point, it didn’t look good at all.

It looked quite bad for Darvin Adams tonight. We will not get any official injury update from the team or Mike O’Shea likely until tomorrow. Med stuff immediately took off his shoulder pads, which indicates it could be upper torso or shoulder related — purely my own speculation.

Winnipeg Football Club senior reporter Ed Tait provided an update: Adams now walking the sidelines with his shoulder pads off. Zach Collaros ran over to see how he was and Adams gave him a nod. That’s hardly an official diagnosis, but take it for what it is.

Adams has been with the Bombers since 2015, recording 296 receptions for 4,226 yards and 34 touchdowns in 69 games. Though his receiving totals were down in the 2019 regular season, the six-foot-two, 201-pound pass catcher made eight catches for 209 yards and one touchdown in the playoffs en route to a Grey Cup victory.

The 31-year-old Adams signed a three-year contract extension through the 2022 season during the league’s negotiation window in February 2020.
