Danny Trevathan's suspension has been reduced to one game, the NFL announced Tuesday.
The linebacker, who was originally handed a two-game penalty after a violent helmet-to-helmet hit sent Packers receiver Davante Adams to the hospital, will be eligible to return against the Baltimore Ravens in Week 6.
Trevathan's vicious blow to Adams' head left the receiver motionless on the field and immediately drew backlash. Despite the optics, head coach John Fox insisted that Trevathan plays the game the right way.
"Danny's not a dirty player," Fox said to Jeff Joniak on WBBM Newsradio Monday.
Trevathan's appeal was heard by former All-Pro linebacker Derrick Brooks, who ultimately decided to cut the suspension in half.
Through four games, Trevathan has made 19 tackles and deflected one pass. He's in the second year of a four-year contract worth $28 million.
