The NFL has reduced Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan's suspension for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams from two games to one.
Adams was taken off the field on a stretcher in the third quarter Thursday night after getting hit in the head during a tackle by Trevathan. The game was delayed for about five minutes while medical personnel tended to Adams. He tweeted Friday that he was at home and "feeling great."
Trevathan was called for an unnecessary-roughness penalty following Adams' eight-yard catch but was not ejected. He is eligible to return following Chicago's game against the Minnesota Vikings on Monday night.
Loss for Saints
The New Orleans Saints have placed right tackle Zach Strief on injured reserve, possibly ending his season.
Strief, in his seventh season as a starter, left Sunday's victory over Miami in London with a knee injury. It was his second knee injury this season. He also was hurt in the season opener Sept. 11 at Minnesota and missed two games before returning last week.
Teams may reactivate up to two players off injured reserve. Teams also no longer have to immediately designate which players they plan to bring back when they first move them to injured reserve. However, one of those players in New Orleans is expected to be cornerback Delvin Breaux, who fractured his fibula during training camp.
