Raiders’ Josh McDaniels supports Davante Adams after the incident

LAS VEGAS — Las Vegas Raiders coach Josh McDaniels expressed his support for wide receiver Davante Adams Tuesday afternoon, hours after a police report was picked up about Adams being killed at the end of the Raiders’ 30-29 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs pinned a man on his way to the locker room Monday night.

And while ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that Adams is being disciplined by the NFL, McDaniels said he doesn’t yet know “what might or might not come out of the league.”

“I wholeheartedly support Davante as a person,” McDaniels said. “As a person, he’s a great guy. I know that was an unfortunate situation. We obviously don’t want any of our guys to do something like that. He knows that. He’s very aware of that. But I know that as a person; I don’t think there was any intention on his part.

“But whatever (the NFL) asks of us, whatever they need from us, of course we will comply. But we are in a kind of wait-and-see situation at this point.”

The Kansas City Police Department released a statement Tuesday morning detailing the situation.

“The victim is a photographer at the Chiefs/Raiders game. At the end of the game he was knocked to the ground and injured himself. He arranged for private transport to the hospital for treatment, at which point he called the police. The injuries are not considered life-threatening for the time being. The incident will be investigated by our Assault Unit detectives, upon completion they will coordinate with the relevant City or District Attorney’s Office to determine any applicable charges.

The report said the investigation is expected to last “more than 1-2 days”.

Adams apologized for pushing the man off his locker after the game.

“I want to apologize to the guy, there was a guy who ran off the field and he ran like he jumped in front of me when I came off the field and I crashed into him, kind of pushed him , and he landed on the floor,” Adams said at the time. “So I wanted to apologize to him for that because that was just frustration mixed in with him literally just running in front of me. I shouldn’t have reacted like that, but that’s how I reacted initially. So I want to apologize to him for that.”

The Raiders go into their bye week 1-4.
