Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan has been suspended by the NFL.
On Saturday afternoon, the league announced Trevathan has been suspended for two games following his helmet-to-helmet hit on Thursday night that left Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams unconscious before being placed on a stretching and carted off the field.
Immediately after Trevathan launched helmet first into Adams, who was tied up by multiple Bears defenders, there were calls for an ejection.
That never happened, but the league ultimately saw what everyone at home did — it was a punishable offense.
“Danny Trevathan of the Chicago Bears has been suspended without pay for two games for a violation of the safety-related playing rules in Thursday night’s game against the Green Bay Packers,” an NFL statement read.
The Bears currently sit at a disappointing 1-3 on the season.
While serving his two-game suspension, Trevathan will miss a Monday Night Football matchup against the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 9 and a road game against the Baltimore Ravens the following week.
Trevathan will be eligible to return to the lineup on Sunday, Oct. 22 against the Carolina Panthers.
