Packers wide receiver Davante Adams was on the receiving end of an illegal shot to the head for the second time this season on Sunday when Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis hit him with his helmet on a blindside block following an interception in the Carolina victory.
Adams was placed in the concussion protocol, as he was after the hit by Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan that resulted in a suspension earlier this season, and didn’t talk to the media after the game. Packers players called, via the Charlotte Observer, Davis’ hit “unnecessary” and quarterback Aaron Rodgers called Davis, who was seen with his head in his hands on the bench after the hit, a “repeat offender” he hopes will be dealt with by the league.
Adams has bounced back from concussions quickly in the past only to play again the following week. But with the Pack's playoff chances taking a bit hit this week it's not out of the question the team plays it safe with Adams for the rest of the season.
