Thomas Davis hit Adams helmet-to-helmet after an interception.

NFL: Green Bay Packers at Carolina Panthers USA TODAY NETWORK-Wisconsin

For the second time this year, Davante Adams has been the victim of a vicious helmet-to-helmet hit that has sent him to the locker room with a potential concussion.

Earlier this year, Adams took a blind-side hit from Chicago Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan. Adams was carted off the field following that game, but returned to the field the following week against the Dallas Cowboys.

On Sunday in Charlotte, the Green Bay Packers receiver took another brutal, dirty hit to the head, this one courtesy of Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis. The hit came on the return of an interception by Aaron Rodgers, and you can see the hit below:

Adams has been taken to the locker room and is being evaluated for a concussion. The penalty cost the Panthers 15 yards of field position, but Davis was not ejected from the game. He will certainly have a fine coming, and should be suspended for at least one game.

Davis would also be classified as a repeat offender, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com.

UPDATE: Adams has been ruled out for the remainder of the game with a concussion.
