A helmet-to-helmet blindside hit by Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis has sent Packers wide receiver Davante Adams into the NFL concussion protocol.

The hit happened during the third quarter of the Packers' game against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers had just thrown an interception, and Adams was in pursuit of the ballcarrier when, from an angle where Adams could not see him, Davis struck him with the crown of his helmet.

Adams walked off on his own power.

It's the second-such hit Adams has taken this year. He was hospitalized after a similar hit by the Bears' Danny Trevathan in a game in September.
