A helmet-to-helmet blindside hit by Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis sent Packers wide receiver Davante Adams out of the game Sunday and into the NFL concussion protocol, a hit that Davis has now been suspended for, according to ESPN.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Twitter that Thomas would serve a suspension of two games, though he will appeal:
Panthers’ LB Thomas Davis is being suspended two games, per sources. He will appeal.
Adams used more vulgar languages in the first and second subsequent tweets afterward. WARNING: Graphic language
The Carolina linebacker has since offered an apology on Twitter, saying he understands Adams' frustration, but wasn't trying to harm him:
I understand your frustration and I do apologize for the hit! In no way was I trying to hurt you. My first instinct was turn and make a block. In all sincerity I do apologize. I truly respect you as a player and I made a mistake!
