Raiders WR Davante Adams has been charged with misdemeanor assault for the postgame incident following the Raiders’ 30-29 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday in which Adams pushed a media member to the ground while leaving the field.

It was reported Tuesday that the individual filed a police report with Kansas City police. Adams may also be facing discipline from the league, which is currently reviewing the situation. No decision has been made at this point.

The Raiders have a Week 6 bye, so any potential suspension Adams may serve won’t come until the team’s Week 7 home matchup against the Houston Texans.

The Raiders have played better football over the last two weeks, notching their first win of the season against the Denver Broncos and playing the Chiefs at Arrowhead all the way to the final drive. Had that final drive gone differently, this entire situation would’ve likely been avoided. Adams nearly caught what surely would’ve been the game-winning catch along the sideline and then seemingly ran the wrong route to cause a collision with WR Hunter Renfrow on the last play. 

However, despite better play on the field, the team is still 1-4. The possibility of losing Adams for any length of time is not good news for the them on top of this situation being a distraction during their much-needed bye.
