Danny Trevathan's Hit Sends Packers' Davante Adams to Hospital

Danny Trevathan's Hit Sends Packers' Davante Adams to Hospital”

Trevathan was not ejected after the hit. The NFL suspended Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict, a repeat offender, for an illegal hit during the preseason.

"That's not OK right there", sportscaster Tony Romo said during a replay of the collision. That looked bad. Trevathan makes the hit. But then he saw that Adams was still motionless and noticed his mouthpiece down on the field. But you've got to understand, I was in a momentum and I was just trying to make a play. But they seemed more incensed that they felt Trevathan was celebrating the big hit. "What we thought was most [messed] up was that he was celebrating that play".

"That's never easy, whether it's a guy like Malachi (Dupre), who you spend only a few weeks with, or a guy like Nick Collins who you win a Super Bowl with and you're drafted in the same class".

"That was [expletive] up", Packers tight end Martellus Bennett said.

Trevathan tried to defend the hit, blaming the usual litany of factors. Consequences send the loudest message about what's acceptable and what's unacceptable and Trevathan has to be made an example of, plain and simple.

"From my perspective I just didn't see enough to rise to that level", Hussey told a pool reporter, via Pro Football Talk. This incident was not a case of a play happening too fast; it was a reckless player laying a risky hit at the end of a play that almost cost a man his life. "Hopefully (the NFL) can see my half of it".

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the league is indeed reviewing the play.

Trevathan could potentially face suspension or other disciplinary action from the league for the hit. "He was just playing the game that he's been playing since he was a young man". If those talks indeed take place next spring, Trevathan's hit will nearly certainly be at the center of the discussions.

The NFL won't be constrained by the same on-the-field realities of the officials.
