Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams left Sunday's loss in the third quarter after suffering a concussion on an illegal hit to the head by Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis following an Aaron Rodgers interception. It's the second time this season Adams has been taken out by a vicious blow to the head, the first coming from the Bears' Danny Trevathan. Packers players were not thrilled with Davis' blindside hit after the loss. "I saw the reaction on our sideline. I know a lot of guys thought it was a dirty hit," coach Mike McCarthy said, noting he'd reserve final judgment until after seeing the play on video. Players weren't in such a mood to wait on judgment. "I was pretty pissed off at first when I saw the replay at how unnecessary it was," Randall Cobb said, via ESPN's Rob Demovsky. "But once I saw 'Tae' moving, he was all right and I was happy to see he was able to walk off the field." Added Rodgers: "I'm obviously concerned when he's not out there and he goes in [the locker room]. He had the rough one at home against Chicago, came back in a week. Everybody's brain responds differently to traumatic contact like that. I hope he's able to respond favorably." It's the third concussion Adams has suffered in the past two years.
