Davante Adams says Aaron Rodgers’ injury is ‘like a horrible movie’

Davante Adams felt for Aaron Rodgers.

The 39-year-old Jets quarterback went down just four offensive snaps into Monday’s season-opener, suffering a torn Achilles that ended his season practically before it started.

Adams, the star Raiders receiver who caught passes from Rodgers in Green Bay for eight seasons (2014-21), provided reporters with an analogy about what happened with Rodgers.

“It’s like a horrible movie,” Adams said, according to USA Today.

“You don’t want to see the main character go down like that at all – let alone as early as what it was.”

Rodgers’ arrival with the Jets came with much anticipation and marketing but played out like a real-life version of “Scream.”

Spoiler alert: The character played by Drew Barrymore, one of the highly publicized stars of the 1996 horror film, was killed off just minutes into the movie.

Adams said he reached out to Rodgers to offer support and will be praying for his former quarterback’s mental health.

“I know he was excited, and I was definitely excited to see him go out there and ball out. I know he was feeling rejuvenated and excited about the opportunity to work with a really good team, so it sucks,” Adams said.

“That’s my guy though, so I let him know basically I’m here for him in whatever way that I can. I don’t know what I can do to make him feel better at this point, especially obviously with us being in season now as well. But like I said, it sucks and I’m just praying that his mental is in a good spot right now and he continues to overcome it, and obviously that team as well.”

The silver lining is that Rodgers implied he will give it his all to mount a comeback.

“Thank you to every person that has reached out, called, texted, DM’d, connected through a friend, etc. It has meant a ton to me, and I’ll try and get back to all of you soon,” Rodgers wrote on Instagram on Wednesday.

“I’m completely heartbroken and moving through all of the emotions, but deeply touched and humbled by the support and love. Please keep me in your thoughts and prayers as I begin the healing process today.

“The night is darkest before the dawn. And I shall rise yet again.”
