Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams left Thursday night’s game against the Chicago Bears on a stretcher after taking a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit from linebacker Danny Trevathan.
Trevathan’s hit resulted in a flag, but many believe it was worthy of an ejection.
As Adams was being held up by other Bears defenders, Trevathan launched himself at Adams’ head with the crown of his helmet. Immediately after contact, an unconscious Adams crumbled to the ground.
Adams was able to give the crowd a thumbs up, but the Packers had not issued an official update on the wide receiver’s status.
Friday morning, that changed when Ian Rapoport of NFL.com passed along an update.
According to Rapoport, Adams suffered a concussion as a result of the hit but an MRI came back clean. All things considered, this is a positive update for Adams.

Adams must now pass through the NFL’s concussion protocol before being eligible to return to the field.
Green Bay went on to win Thursday night’s game, 35-14, advancing its record to 3-1 on the season.
The Bears, meanwhile, dropped to 1-3.
