The soon-to-be free agent receiver suffered a concussion in September on an illegal hit from Bears linebacker Danny Trevathan.
The hit once again highlights the need for a specific "targeting" rule; one that would provide instant, in-game consequences for tackles like these.
Adams was knocked hard to the ground by Carolina linebacker Thomas Davis, who was blocking following teammate Colin Jones' interception of Aaron Rodgers.
The Panthers were penalized 15 yards for Davis' blindside hit.
Adams' concussion history could play a factor in upcoming contract talks, a disappointing reality for a young receiver otherwise enjoying a career season.
He did not miss a game following either of his past two concussions. "But once I saw "Tae" moving, he was all right and I was happy to see he was able to walk off the field", Cobb said, via ESPN's Rob Demovsky.
Adams returned to the field 10 days after taking the shot against the Bears to score the game-winner against the Dallas Cowboys earlier this season.
