National Football League may suspend Danny Trevathan for brutal hit on Packers WR

Furthermore, this didn't take place in a vacuum. In that context, the hit looks much more deliberate than accidental. He led with his helmet and slammed into Adams' head, which pinballed off the helmet of Bears safety Adrian Amos. It's not like Trevathan was hard to miss, as the clip shows.

"Joe Lockhart gives an update on Davante Adams, says 'all signs are good from the doctors, '" wrote Ben Volin of the Boston Globe. This incident was not a case of a play happening too fast; it was a reckless player laying a risky hit at the end of a play that almost cost a man his life.

Trevathan was given an unnecessary roughness penalty following Adams' eight-yard catch. He settled on destruction.

"I don't think it should be a suspension, but my main concern is that he's OK", Trevathan said. I could've been a little bit better, but you've got to understand I was in a momentum, and I was trying to make a play. "Hopefully (the NFL) can see my half of it". "I'm trying to create havoc as a linebacker". If the league finds Trevathan's act as egregious as that one, he'll likely be sitting out a game. It's unsafe for both players.

Trevathan insisted he wasn't trying to hurt Adams.

The issue of automatic ejections could come under the scrutiny of the collective bargaining agreement, but there's one aspect of the college rule that the National Football League could embrace with a recommendation from the competition committee followed by a simple vote of its owners: making those hits reviewable.

Rodgers said it was one of the loudest hits he could remember, comparing it to a 2005 hit on then-teammate Ahman Green by Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Derrick Brooks. A report by NBC Sports states that Adams has been released from the hospital after he spent the night getting treatment. And while the Packers offense gained a fresh set of downs and four yards from the end of the play, they lost Adams for the game and possibly even longer. A couple plays without that weapon and everyone will be using proper technique. Running back Jamaal Williams left with a knee injury, but a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter that MRI results came back negative and that he has a muscular injury only. I've corrected it above.
