Kyler Murray is a forgiving guy.
On Wednesday, the Arizona Cardinals QB was asked how he feels about getting hit in the face by a fan at the end of the Las Vegas Raiders game, he gave an answer that most wouldn’t have predicted.
“Stuff happens fast. … I don’t know if he probably didn’t know where he was. I don’t know — it was a pretty live game. Vegas is Vegas. I’m sure he was having fun. But! Again, I don’t know. I don’t think any player should be getting touched in that manner, but no hard feelings towards the guy. If I see him, I’d shake his hand. But it is what it is.”
Video of the altercation showed Murray celebrating with fans along the wall that separates the field and the field-level box.
A ton of fans were throwing their hands toward him when one of them hit him across the face. Murray responded by confronting the person who touched him and had some words for him.
Las Vegas police were investigating a battery complaint that was filed Sunday evening.
Murray, who signed a $230 million contract this offseason, played well in the win as completed 31-of-49 passes for 277 yards and a touchdown against the Las Vegas Raiders.
