Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis has been suspended two games for his illegal hit on Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams in Sunday’s game in Charlotte. Davis will appeal the suspension.
Adams lashed out at Davis on Monday, tweeting that the Panthers linebacker was “head hunting” when he led with his helmet on the blindside hit Sunday.
Davis tweeted a reply to Adams, saying he “made a mistake.”
Davis hit a defenseless Adams, leading with his helmet, after Panthers safety Colin Jones picked off an Aaron Rodgers pass and returned it 34 yards.
