I have an editorial disagreement here, but as with all such disagreements, I'm happy to go with whatever more people think reads better.

I find this use of "numeric value" to be unnecessary. Making it implicit (which is what this sentence is doing) doesn't really change the way a reader consumes this sentence. As a reader, I will replace "numeric value" with "packet number"; there isn't a different definition for packet number that is anything more than the numeric value.

At a minimum, I would swap the order of the two sentences.
