The play came late in the third quarter with the Packers up 21-7 over the Bears.

Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams left Thursday night's game on a stretcher after a dirty, malicious hit from Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan left him lifeless on the Lambeau Field turf. Adams is one of the key weapons for Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. And that's all this was - Trevathan trying to inflict some serious harm to Adams.

The game was delayed for about 5 minutes while medical personnel tended to Adams. The hit-which was called as an unnecessary roughness penalty-sent Adams's mouth guard flying as his head slammed into the ground.


The Packers said Adams was conscious and taken to a hospital for evaluation for possible head and neck injuries, and that he had feeling in all of his extremities. That's the kind of hit a player should be ejected and suspended for. Fortunately, he did move his hands toward his facemask while on the ground, and he gave a thumbs-up sign as he was taken off of the field.

Trevathan was penalized for the hit, leading to the Packers scoring a touchdown on the possession. Adams recorded two catches for 13 yards and a touchdown before exiting.
