The unmitigated smack caused Adams to leave the game on a stretcher, but he miraculously was able to play the next week, while playing a large part in beating the Cowboys. 

Just a few short weeks following the hit, Trevathan announced that he and Adams cleared the air on the hit and are good with each other.


"I told him I hope he’s good. Hope you know I wasn’t trying to harm him. I was just trying to make a play. He was real cool. He plays football. He plays it hard, and he plays it good. Obviously, he played last week. He did good. He handled it well. We were good," said Trevathan.

While the hit was nasty, Trevathan said it wasn't on purpose. If you haven't seen it, here it is:

"I just gotta be more careful with situations like that. But I can’t let that slow me down. I’ve been playing this game for a long time. I’ll be more careful with the rules that are in place. But I’m just trying to make a play and hustling to the ball," said Trevathan.

It's good to hear that both guys have seemed to get past this and are good with one another. Hopefully for both, this will now be something that's put in the past.
