League to review Trevathan hit on Adams

Injury Report: Packers Are Out of Offensive Tackles How can Packers mask absences at offensive tackle vs. Bears?

Rodgers exchanged harsh words with some of the Bears on the field afterward, saying he didn't like to see any celebrating when a player is carted off. I regret the level I hit him at.

"I'm looking forward to just him being OK and seeing what the people got to say about the fine", Trevathan said.

The Packers held a 21-7 lead when the hit took place and scored a touchdown on the very next play. "But I don't think he was intentionally trying to hurt 'Tae". The officiating crew of last night's game missed a crucial opportunity to set a precedent for future hits.

The NFL said in the offseason that the most egregious and unsafe of illegal hits would result in players being ejected from games by the officials or suspended by the league.

Due to a new rule that the National Football League implemented this off-season, Trevathan could be suspended for the hit that sent Adams to the hospital. "He is one of the hardest-hitting players in the N.F.L. You know you play a physical game, but you never wish that on nobody". "So I don't do dirty hits". "Hopefully (the NFL) can see my half of it".

Trevathan and the Bears were penalized 15 yards, but the hit wasn't "really beautiful" and nor, of course, was the result. He also tweeted that those who haven't played the game can not fully understand the violence and "Romo understands that's why his ass is in the booth".

The NFL won't be constrained by the same on-the-field realities of the officials.

Trevathan will nearly certain get a suspension for the hit, meaning he'll lose a game check for it. The NFL should borrow from, if not outright duplicate, the collegiate targeting rule. More specifically, he probably meant an illegal hit with the crown of the helmet.

Fines, and even the threat of suspension, are not enough to dissuade players from risky hits. They want to hit!
