In Thursday’s rivalry game between the Green Bay Packers and the Chicago Bear, Packers player Davante Adams was injured after a nasty hit by the Bear’s Danny Trevathan. The hit was brutal to see in a slow-mo replay with Adam’s helmet jarring back and his mouth-piece flying out of his mouth. Today the NFL responded with a 2-game suspension on Trevathan.
The league said that Trevathan violated Rule 12, Section 2, Article 6 (i) which states that “there shall be no unnecessary roughness. This shall include, but will not be limited to: (i) using any part of a player’s helmet or facemask to butt, spear, or ram an opponent violently or unnecessarily.” – nfl.com
If Trevathan doesn’t have a successful appeal, he will be available for the Bear’s October 16th game against the Baltimore Ravens.
Trevathan expressed care for Adams in a post-game interview on Thursday, noting his intention was not to injure Adams.
