Being upset about a loss is perfectly normal, but assaulting someone in the process is never okay.
Las Vegas Raiders receiver Davante Adams shoved a credentialed person on the field carrying equipment in the aftermath of Monday night’s 30-29 loss at the Kansas City Chiefs.
He would later issue an apology while stating the guy jumped in front of him as he tried to leave the field.
“I want to apologize to the guy, there was some guy running off the field, and he ran, like jumped in front of me coming off the field and I bumped into him, kind of pushed him, and he ended up on the ground,” Adams said at his locker. “So I wanted to say sorry to him for that because that was just frustration mixed with him literally just running in from of me. I shouldn’t have responded that way, but that’s how I initially responded. So, I want to apologize to him for that.”
Adams issued another apology on Twitter.
“Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game. Obviously very frustrated at the way the game ended and when he ran in front of me as I exited that was my reaction and I felt horrible immediately. Thats not me..MY APOLOGIES man hope you see this.”
ESPN’s Adam Schefter later reported that Adams is facing discipline from the NFL.
Unfortunately for Adams, that guy was sent to the hospital and has since filed a police report against him for his actions on Monday night.
The Raiders, who fell to 1-4 with the loss, enter their bye week after blowing a 17-0 second-quarter lead to the Chiefs.
Adams did all he could as he pulled down three catches for 124 yards.
