Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan was suspended two games without pay for his helmet-to-helmet hit on Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams, the NFL announced Saturday.

Adams was stretchered off the field following the hit, which occurred with 4:37 remaining the third quarter of Green Bay’s 35-14 victory Thursday night at Lambeau Field. Adams was taken to a nearby hospital where he was examined for head and neck injuries. The 24-year-old was conscious, had feeling and movement in all extremities, and updated fans on his condition Friday.

“You never want to see anybody get hurt,” Bears coach John Fox told reporters. “Danny Trevathan’s not a dirty player and he’s not out to hurt anybody. They’re part of the game. People will look at it but there was nothing intentional about it by any stretch.”

It’s unclear at this time how much time Adams will miss. The Packers also lost Ty Montgomery Thursday night after the running back suffered broken ribs in the opening quarter.
