The Green Bay Packers are getting a stellar performance from wide receiver Trevor Davis on Thursday night, as the team holds a 21-10 lead over the Oakland Raiders at halftime from Winnipeg. The game almost did not happen, as the turf in the end zones was a mess in the locations where the goal posts are normally located for CFL games. However, the contest went on without starters and with an 80-yard field instead of a typical 100-yard playing surface.
Davis had a terrific first half, however, catching four passes for 66 yards and a touchdown and adding an 18-yard end-around and a 17-yard punt return.
Meanwhile, the Packers suffered a couple of notable injuries in the first half, though they were not related to any turf issues. First-round rookie Rashan Gary seemed to suffer a head or neck injury while making a tackle and was carted to the locker room, while receiver Equanimeous St. Brown left after a nasty-looking hit to the head. St. Brown actually seems to have a bigger issue with his left ankle than his head, however, as trainers immediately removed his shoe and put him on the cart.
Tim Boyle started slow but threw two touchdown passes, one each to Davis and Jake Kumerow, while going 16-for-25 for 191 yards. Tra Carson added a touchdown late in the first half to give the Packers their 21-10 lead.
