During the Chicago Bears' 35-14 loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night, former Kentucky LB Danny Trevathan was involved in one of the dirtiest plays of the year. He was taken to a nearby hospital for evaluation and was said by the Packers to be conscious and with movement in his extremities. The Packers have also released an Adams injury update, revealing that the star receiver has been diagnosed with a concussion.
"I trust when Danny said he wasn't intentionally trying to hit him like that", Rodgers said.
The NFL also instituted a centralized replay system this season, meaning calls on anything subject to review are made by the operations team at the league's headquarters in NY. I think it was right here [pointing to his chest just below the neck].

"I don't wish bad on nobody, but I'm going to play lights out", Trevathan said.
Trevathan received a 15-yard unnecessary roughness penalty but was not ejected.
The veteran linebacker Trevathan charged in at the last second and delivered a helmet to helmet hit on Adams that sent his mouthpiece flying. In real time, they threw a flag that, because it happened near the goal line, cost the Bears only four yards. "Nothing intentional. It happens in this game". If those talks indeed take place next spring, Trevathan's hit will nearly certainly be at the center of the discussions. The Packers were already without their top five offensive tackles - including starters David Bakhtiari (hamstring) and Bryan Bulaga (ankle) - as well as defensive tackle Mike Daniels (hip) going into the game. "He was just playing the game that he's been playing since he was a young man". Randall had been benched after giving up a touchdown pass just before halftime and was seen sitting alone on the bench after the disagreement. Both teams were coming off overtime wins Sunday.
