Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams taken out by illegal hit that led to concussion


CHARLOTTE, N.C. — First, the Danny Trevathan hit. Now this for Davante Adams.

The Green Bay Packers receiver was taken out by an illegal hit that led to a concussion for the second time this season.

On Sunday, it happened when Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis hit Adams with an illegal blindside hit during an interception return in the third quarter. Davis hit a defenseless Adams after Panthers safety Colin Jones picked off an Aaron Rodgers pass and returned it 34 yards.

This is Adams’ third concussion in the past two seasons.

He did not miss a game following either of his past two concussions. He was taken off the field on a gurney following Trevathan’s hit on Sept. 28. The Bears linebacker served a one-game suspension, but Adams returned for the next game 10 days later and caught two touchdown passes at Dallas.

On Sunday, Adams was able to walk off the field under his own power.
