Following his team’s loss to the Chiefs on Monday night, Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams is likely to receive criticism from the league, possibly even a punishment, according to sources cited by NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero.
Adams shoved the person down as he was leaving GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium and heading toward the tunnel.
Tuesday, NFL.com verified that the individual Adam shoved reported it to the Kansas City police (Missouri)
“[The victim] made arrangements for private transport to the hospital for treatment at which time he called police,” the incident report said. “The injuries are preliminarily thought to be non-life threatening.”
According to Kansas City police, its assault unit detectives will look into the event, and they don’t anticipate it taking more than a day or two.
“Before I say anything, I want to apologize to the guy (camera person) running off the field and he ran and jumped in front of me,” Adams said. “I’m coming off the field and I bumped into him and pushed him. I think he ended up on the ground, so I want to say sorry to him because that was just frustration mixed with him running in front of me and I shouldn’t have responded that way and that’s how I initially responded. I want to apologize to him for that.”
Adams expressed his regret to the individual and talked about the situation during the news conference after the game.
Later, Adams also tweeted an apology.
On Monday, Adams made two lengthy touchdown catches, one of which in the fourth quarter trimmed the Chiefs’ lead to one point. Adams collided with Raiders wide receiver Hunter Renfrow on a botched fourth-down effort that ended the game, and he also had a crucial reception in the fourth quarter reversed on review.
Adams was spotted slamming his helmet after the game, clearly upset about the Raiders’ defeat. The incident in the tunnel happened shortly after that.
The Raiders’ record fell to 1-4 as a result of the defeat.
