Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams pushed a cameraman to the ground as he left the field after a 30-29 loss to the Chiefs on Monday night at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Missouri.
Adams was frustrated after he and receiver Hunter Renfrow ran into each other on a fourth-down pass attempt on the Raiders’ final offensive snap. They had the ball with a chance to win the game only to have the drive stall after an Adams reception down the sideline on third down was overturned before the fourth-down pass.

As Adams approached the tunnel, a cameraman appeared to cross his path. Adams shoved him to the ground and was then escorted down the tunnel.
Adams spoke to reporters and gave a brief answer about the final play before turning his attention to the postgame incident.
“Before I answer anything else, I want to apologize to the guy who was running off the field,” Adams said. “He ran and jumped in front of me as I was coming off the field. I bumped into him and kind of pushed him, and I think he ended up on the ground.
“So I want to say sorry to him for that. That was just frustration mixed with him literally just running in front 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 later took to Twitter to apologize again.
Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game. Obviously very frustrated at the way the game ended and when he ran infront of me as I exited that was my reaction and I felt horrible immediately. Thats not me..MY APOLOGIES man hope you see this.
