"Yes, he should have been ejected from the game, but you have to remember these are bang-bang plays, and the whistle had not sounded from what I understand, and that's why Trevathian went in with that hit, but he went in lowered the helmet, and that's the thing they're trying to get out of the game, helmet-to-helmet contact, especially the targeting type mode like that," Larrivee said.
Packers starting running back Ty Montgomery was knocked out in the first quarter with a chest injury. Montgomery had five carries for 28 yards on the opening series of the game before leaving with about 10 minutes left in the first quarter.
He was replaced by rookie Jamaal Williams, who was knocked out midway through the second quarter with a knee injury. Linebacker Joe Thomas also the game with an ankle injury.
The Packers led 28-7 in a game that was also delayed about 45 minutes between the first and second quarters because of a lightning storm. Both teams were coming off overtime wins Sunday.
Green Bay in particular has been hit hard by injuries this season. The Packers had to shuffle their offensive line with starting tackles David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Bryan Bulaga (ankle) already out with injuries.
