Panthers LB Thomas Davis Suspended Two Games, Davis Plans To Appeal


Adam Schefter reports that Panthers LB Thomas Davis is being suspended two games for his blindside hit on Packers WR Davante Adams during Sunday’s game.

Schefter adds that Davis will appeal the ban.

Here’s the official announcement from the NFL:

Davis knocked Adams out of the game after Aaron Rodgers threw an interception and he turned to block Adams, but wound up hitting him helmet-to-helmet.

Davis, 34, is a former first-round pick of the Panthers back in 2005. He was in the final year of his three-year, $18 million contract that includes $11.5 million guaranteed when he and the Panthers agreed to a one-year, $6.75 million extension through 2018.

In 2017, Davis has appeared in 14 games and recorded 66 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and a fumble recovery. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 25 linebacker out of 92 qualifying players.
