Thomas Davis suspension reduced to one game

CHARLOTTE – The NFL has upheld its suspension of linebacker Thomas Davis, but he'll miss one fewer game than the league originally ruled. 

Davis had an appeal hearing Tuesday, a day after the league said they were sitting him for two games for a helmet-to-helmet hit that left wideout Davante Adams with a concussion in the Panthers' Week 15 win over the Packers. 

Davis will still be forced to sit out Sunday's visit from Tampa Bay, but because his suspension was reduced, he'll be able to return for next week's regular season finale in Atlanta.
