Packers Player Is Hospitalized After 'Dirty' Hit In Game Against Bears

Green Bay Packers guard Lane Taylor sits on the bench during the first half of an NFL football game against the Detroit Lions Sunday Jan. 1 2017 in Detroit

He underwent preliminary tests for head and neck injuries, including the possibility of a concussion, at the stadium. The fact that the hit came after Adams was wrapped up and stopped will only add to the argument for suspension.

Adams was placed on a stretcher by trainers and brought to the locker room, where he was loaded into an ambulance and transported to the hospital. "He's already giving them a hard time at the hospital to get out of there, so that's a great sign".

Referee John Hussey penalized Trevathan 15 yards for unnecessary roughness but did not see a reason to eject him from the game.

The Packers later released a statement updating fans on Adams' injury. It's still unknown how much time he'll miss and McCarthy didn't have more information to provide.

The Packers held a 21-7 lead when the hit took place and scored a touchdown on the very next play.

Speaking to reporters after the game, Trevathan said he wasn't trying to intentionally hurt Adams. The NFL suspended Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, a repeat offender, for an illegal hit during the preseason.

The Packers dealt with a similar ordeal with seventh-round pick Malachi Dupre back in August. It's still unknown if Adams has been officially diagnosed with a concussion, but it's hard to see how he could have avoided it. Dupre was able to return to practice after 12 days. But they seemed more incensed that they felt Trevathan was celebrating the big hit.

The hit may not have been malicious, but Trevathan's reaction did not endear him to the Packers. "I'm just going to send a prayer out".

"It's one of the worst feelings you have when you see a guy motionless on the field", Jordy Nelson said after the game.

"I regret just the level I hit him at", he said.

Last Friday - just hours before Trump railed against the softness of the National Football League in Alabama - researchers at the CTE Center at Boston University disclosed that former National Football League tight end Aaron Hernandez, whose career ended after he was arrested and ultimately convicted of murder, had the most severe case of CTE they'd ever seen. My main concern was that he's OK.
