Las Vegas Raiders receiver Davante Adams has been charged for shoving a person following the team’s loss Monday night.

According to Shain Bergan, a reporter for  KCTV5 News in Kansas City, Adams has been charged with misdemeanor assault. The incident occurred when Adams was exiting the stadium and a credentialed person walked in front of him.

The report goes on to say that the man who was shoved, identified as Ryan Zebley, suffered “whiplash and headache, possible minor concussion.”

Davante Adams is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, Nov. 10. The Raiders play the Indianapolis Colts at home that following Sunday.

As of Wednesday morning, neither the league nor the team has announced any penalties for Adams. The Raiders’ receiver apologized after the game, and again on social media, saying “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.”

When speaking to the media yesterday, coach Josh McDaniels said Adams is a great guy and this was an unfortunate situation.

“We obviously don’t want any of our guys to be doing anything like that and he knows that. He’s very well aware of that,” McDaniels said. “But I know the person, I don’t think there was any intent behind it on his part. But whatever they ask of us, whatever they need from us, obviously we will comply.”
