NFL players send prayers to Packers Davante Adams after vicious hit

On Thursday Night, Packers wide receiver Davante Adams was injured after an illegal hit by Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan.

Multiple Bears defenders had Adams wrapped up inside the red zone after a reception when Trevathan lowered his head and hit the front of Adams’ face hard enough to send his mouthpiece flying.

After the play, Adams lay motionless on the ground as Packers players called for immediate assistance from trainers. Many former and current NFL players took to social media to offer their prayers for Adams after the violent hit.

Adams was seen giving the thumps up to fans as he was taken off on a stretcher to the ambulance. The team later reported that Adams was conscious and had movement in all extremities on the way to a local hospital.

The Packers won the game 35-14 over Chicago and moved to 3-1.

Continue to keep Davante in your prayers today as he recovers.
