Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams was seen on the ESPN broadcast of Monday Night Football pushing a person to the ground as he exited the field following his team's 30-29 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.

Adams apologized for his actions to the media after the game, according to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN. He also took to social media to apologize:

Davante Adams @tae15adams

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.

Adams collided with teammate Hunter Renfrow on a failed fourth-down conversion attempt near midfield with less than a minute to play. The Raiders dropped to 1-4 on the season.

Whatever the reason for his anger, pushing someone who was in his way was unnecessary, and it's likely the NFL will take a closer look at what happened.

Damn <a href="https://twitter.com/tae15adams?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">@tae15adams</a>! Damn! We can only imagine the frustration but you CANNOT shove a cameraman — who was just trying to move out the way. You just can’t. Please apologize for that! Please!

A fine and even a suspension may be in Adams' future, spoiling a night on which he caught three passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns.
