The NFL has suspended Danny Trevathan for two games without pay for his hit on Davante Adams.
The NFL said Trevathan violated Rule 12, Section 2, Article 6: "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 on unnecessarily."
Adams was taken off the field on a stretcher.
Trevathan was called for an unnecessary roughness penalty but was not ejected from the 35-14 Bears loss.
"I regret the level I hit him at," Trevathan said after the game. "But you got to understand I had momentum, and I was just trying to make a play."
