Trevathan finished off the play when he lowered his head and drove the crown of his helmet right into the facemask of Adams.
The Bears player who laid the hit on Adams, Danny Trevathan, received a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty but was not thrown out of the game. The hit was unnecessary, the defenders of Trevathan can not say that the player ducked into it and it was direct to the head.
Anything happening at Lambeau Field was put on hold with about four minutes left in the third quarter. I knew it wasn't good.
The league is now reviewing the play and will consider a possible suspension for Trevathan, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. This incident was not a case of a play happening too fast; it was a reckless player laying a unsafe hit at the end of a play that almost cost a man his life.
"I trust when Danny said he wasn't intentionally trying to hit him like that", Rodgers said. Packers receiver Davante Adams caught a pass from Aaron Rodgers and looked like he was going to be wrapped up.
National Football League referees have the power to eject players for violent, illegal hits to the head.
"Lockhart says of Trevathan, 'There have already been discussions, but I don't have a decision yet on whether discipline will be handed down, '" Volin added. I regret the level I hit him at. "I'm not a dirty player, so I don't think it was a dirty hit".
"Hopefully, they see that". White followed by saying how unfortunate the hit was but added that football is "all reaction" and he did not think the hit was on goal.
After making the hit on Adams, Trevathan was pulled out of a scrum and jawing with Packers players. If the act happens in the second half, the player would not only be ejected for the remainder of that game, he would also be disqualified for the first half of the following game.
