Green Bay Packers wide receiver Davante Adams has been ruled out of Saturday night's game against the visiting Minnesota Vikings, coach Mike McCarthy announced Thursday.
Adams sustained a concussion on Sunday following a blindside hit administered by Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis, who initially received a two-game suspension from the league the following day. That ban was then reduced to one game.
Davis apologized to Adams over social media for the hit following an interception during the third quarter of Sunday's game at Bank of America Stadium.
The concussion sustained by Adams was his second of the season and third of his NFL career. The 24-year-old was taken off the field on a gurney following a hit from Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan during a game in Week 4.
Trevathan served a one-game suspension for the hit on Adams, who leads the Packers (7-7) with 74 catches for 885 yards and 10 touchdowns this season.
