Packers wide receiver Davante Adams has been on the receiving end of two of the most violent hits to the head in the entire NFL this season. The first came early in the year when the Bears' Danny Trevathan hit Adams so hard that he was hospitalized overnight. The second came Sunday after an interception when Adams was leveled by the Panthers' Thomas Davis on a blindside block.
Adams was placed in concussion protocol and didn't talk to reporters after the game. On Monday, Twitter became his medium of choice to express his displeasure about the "head hunting" from Davis, who was suspended two games for the hit.
He tweeted: "I'll never understand it. Game is already dangerous enough and we got Pro Bowl players out here head hunting."
Davis replied on Twitter: "In all sincerity I do apologize. I truly respect you as a player, and I made a mistake!"
