The NFL has suspended Carolina Panthers Linebacker, Thomas Davis, for two games due to his blindside block on Greenbay Packers’ Davante Adams.  The news came down Monday after NFL vice president of football operations Jon Runyan wrote a letter to Davis indicating that he violated player safety rules.

“During an interception return, you took a path toward your opponent who was pursuing the play and delivered a violent and unnecessary blindside block to his head and neck area,” Runyan wrote. “You have been previously fined for violations of safety-related rules. Your actions yesterday warrant an escalation of discipline, not only because they were flagrant, but also because of  your status as a repeat offender,” Runyan continued.

Davis’ hit Adams left the wide receiver with a concussion and is his second violation of this kind. Davis was also fined $48,620 for a hit on Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Adam Humphires.

Adams took to Twitter to express his frustration about the play where Thomas then took the chance to apologize.

While Davis apologized for his actions, Washington Redskins linebacker  had another take on the ‘headhunting’ situation.
