Trevathan interviewed with the appeals officer Derrick Brooks, who is jointly appointed by the National Football League and NFLPA, via phone earlier Tuesday.

The suspension imposed on Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Green Bay Packers receiver Davante Adams has been reduced to one game.

But Trevathan has never been in trouble before for an illegal hit, so that may have played a factor in Brooks' decision to halve his suspension. The rule states "there shall be no unnecessary roughness".


Speaking to reporters after the game, Trevathan expressed concern for Adams and stressed that he was not trying to hurt the Packers receiver. He was taken off the field on a stretcher and delivered to a local Green Bay hospital for evaluation of head and neck injuries.

Bears LB Danny Trevathan's suspension has been reduced to one game. Adams suffered a concussion on a Sunday last season and still managed to suit up for Thursday Night Football just four days later.

This came after a hearing between the Bears' linebacker and Brooks earlier this week.
