Adams was walking toward a tunnel on his way to the locker room Monday at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium when he extended both of his arms and shoved a man who was carrying equipment and working on the sideline at the game.

"Sorry to the guy I pushed over after the game," Adams tweeted. "Obviously, very frustrated at the way the game ended and when he ran in front 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, who also apologized in his postgame interview, caught three passes for a game-high 124 yards and two scores in the 30-29 loss.

"I want to apologize to the guy," Adams told reporters. "There was some guy running off the field and he ran and jumped in front of me, coming off the field. I bumped into him and a kind of pushed him and I think he ended up on the ground. I want to say sorry to him for that.
