From Cam Newton’s go-to receiver at Auburn to the Toronto Argonauts’ de facto go-to option, it has been quite the ride for Darvin Adams.
A skeptic could argue Adams has been fast-tracked in Argoland in the wake of so many injuries to virtually the offence’s first three options.
Almost by default, the naysayers would claim, Adams been asked to assume more responsibilities and an added role in Toronto’s pass-happy offence.
Truth be told, he’s earned it, responding from an early-game dropped pass last week in Ottawa by hooking up with Ricky Ray for the game’s only touchdown in the fourth quarter in an 18-17 Argos loss.
As the pieces around Adams succumb to injuries, he nearly became the latest casualty on Wednesday when Adams fell while making a reception during practice, unable to get back on his feet for a few moments before he was able to gather himself.
