Panthers LB Thomas Davis responds to Davante Adams' tweet

Show Caption

Pending appeal, the Carolina Panthers will be without star linebacker Thomas Davis for the final two games of their push to the playoffs, thanks to his vicious blindside head shot to Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams on Sunday.

Asked about Davis' illegal hit on Packers receiver Davante Adams Sunday, Clinton-Dix didn't hide his disappointment.

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers stepped back and threw an interception in the quarter as Panthers safety Colin Jones picked the pass off and was returning it toward the end zone. He was also caught kneeling in prayer when cameras panned the Panthers' sideline. Davis drilled Adams in the helmet with his helmet and shoulder.

Davis was suspended by the National Football League on Monday for two games but has said that he will appeal the suspension.

It marked Adams' second concussion of the season - and third in a 14-month span - in the wake of a wicked September 28 hit by Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan, who knocked Adams out and sent him to a local hospital for overnight observation with a helmet-to-facemask hit. NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan issued the ban. "You have been previously fined for violations of safety-related rules".

Davis can return to the Panthers on January 1 should the team qualify for the postseason.

Special UN Jerusalem session tomorrow
While the General Assembly is beyond the reach of a US veto, unlike the Security Council its resolutions are non-binding. Mansour said on Monday he hoped there would be "overwhelming support" in the General Assembly for the resolution.

Somebody please explain to me what I wasnt trying to hurt him means when we nowhere near the play and u lead with ya head and ear hole a defenseless player.... Because Davis is a repeat offender. Once he did, Davis was in Murphy's face the second he looked up and delivered a familiar helmet-to-helmet strike that left Murphy with what was later diagnosed as "spinal stenosis", which is a narrowing of the spine in the region of the neck. It was the second time this season Adams left a game after a hit to the head, the first coming courtesy of Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan.

Davis is also expected to appeal the suspension. We supposed to be in this together n look out for one another not mess with a mans livelihood and hand out unnecessary concussions.

"Not the type to rant but when u go through this [expletive] twice in a year it takes a lil toll on u so excuse me".

I'll never understand it. My first instinct was turn and make a block.

Clinton-Dix confirmed Davis attempted to apologize after the Panthers' 31-24 win, but he also questioned the sincerity of the offer.

"The emphasis right there was when you get an interception, you're really trying to set the wall", said Panthers defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, according to ESPN's David Newton. "So I don't think it was anything malicious in anything Thomas was trying to do".
