Such a hit occurred during Thursday night's game in Green Bay, when Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan hit Packers wide receiver Davante Adams helmet to helmet as Adams was being tackled after a catch.
Adams was transported by ambulance to Bellin Hospital in Green Bay to undergo evaluations for a head and neck injury and the possibility of a concussion after the hit in Thursday's game in Green Bay. "He's already giving them a hard to time trying to get out of the hospital, so that's a great sign", McCarthy said.
"Hopefully, they see that".
"I was just trying to make a play", he said. You never want to see that, but this game is physical, and it happens.
"From my perspective I just didn't see enough to rise to that level [of ejection]", Hussey told the pool reporter after the 35-14 Packer win.
Trump then segued into his now-infamous tirade against players who kneel during the national anthem.
They weren't happy that Trevathan was celebrating the play either. It didn't look like he meant to hurt Adams, but he recklessly led with his helmet.
Packers cornerback Davon House called the hit "disgusting" after he watched a replay in the locker room, and that was the general consensus from football fans around the league who were watching last night's game. With his momentum stopped by other Bears defenders after a short reception, Adams absorbed a powerful helmet-to-helmet blow from Trevathan that sent Adams' mouthguard flying and briefly knocked him out.
"My main concern is that he's okay". White followed by saying how unfortunate the hit was but added that football is "all reaction" and he did not think the hit was on objective.
His words won't stop him from getting fined and possibly suspended, though.
