NEW YORK – Danny Trevathan’s vicious hit on Davante Adams is going to cost him some playing time.
NFL officials suspended Trevathan two games without pay for violating ‘safety-related’ rules.

The league cited Rule 12, Section 2, Article 6 in issuing the suspension, which prohibits “using any part of a player’s helmet or facemask to butt, spear, or ram an opponent violently or unnecessarily.”
Trevathan now has three business days to appeal. If he’s unsuccessful doing so, the earliest he can return the Bears’ active roster is Monday October 16th, following the team’s game against the Baltimore Ravens.
