The NFL has suspended Thomas Davis for two games for an illegal hit on Davante Adams during Sunday's game between the Carolina Panthers and Green Bay Packers.

The linebacker plans to appeal the suspension.

"The league made a decision, you know, fortunately we have an appeals process we will go through that. Whatever happens from there, happens," Davis said.

Davis, leading with his helmet, hit a defenseless Adams as a teammate was returning an interception.

He was penalized for the hit but remained in the game.
