According to team officials, Adams was transported to the medical facility and was conscious and had movement in his extremities.
Former Fresno State star Davante Adams, a receiver with the Green Bay Packers, was being evaluated for potentially serious injuries after receiving what some are calling a dirty hit during NFL's Thursday Night Football. "Nothing intentional, it happens in this game; hopefully, they see that".
Chicago linebacker Danny Trevathan came sprinting in from the side of the play where Adams was being held up, and crashed into him at head height.
"I don't like anybody celebrating when a guy gets carted off the field", Rodgers said.

And while the Packers offense gained a fresh set of downs and four yards from the end of the play, they lost Adams for the game and possibly even longer.
"Lockhart says of Trevathan, 'There have already been discussions, but I don't have a decision yet on whether discipline will be handed down, '" Volin added. "I was just trying to make a play", Trevathan told reporters.
It was another painful game for the Packers, who played without their top five offensive tackles - left guard Lane Taylor played left tackle for the first time in his life - and then lost running back Ty Montgomery to broken ribs. That looked bad. Trevathan makes the hit. He led with his helmet and slammed into Adams' head, which pinballed off the helmet of Bears safety Adrian Amos.
"But I don't think he was intentionally trying to hurt 'Tae". Trevathan's hit certainly applies.
On ESPN, Kevin Seifert pointed out that new rules approved by National Football League owners before the start of the season allow suspensions for "egregious" hits, even those that occur as a first offense.
Fines, and even the threat of suspension, are not enough to dissuade players from risky hits.
