Current Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan, a former All-American at Kentucky, has had his name in the headlines for all the wrong reasons in the past few days.
During the Bears’ game on Thursday night, Travathan hit Packers’ wide receiver Davante Adams helmet-to-helmet, a play which sent Adams to the hospital. Though Travathan disputed the notion that his hit was a dirty play after the game, the NFL evidently felt differently, suspending Travathan for two games, according to the Tampa Bay Times’ Greg Auman:

While at Kentucky, Travathan was a two-time All-SEC player in 2010 and 2011. He has spent the past two seasons with the Bears after spending the previous four seasons with the Denver Broncos. The pick the Broncos used to select Travathan was acquired in a trade for Tim Tebow.
