Superstar Raiders Wide Receiver to Face Discipline for MNF Incident

The Las Vegas Raiders will be kicking themselves following a frustrating 30-29 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football, and there could be more consequences to come. Wide Receiver Davante Adams shoved a cameraman to the ground following the defeat, and NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports the five-time Pro Bowler will face league discipline. Adams had a particularly aggravating last couple of plays, bobbling a pass that was called incomplete on third down before colliding with fellow Raider Hunter Renfrow and dooming a fourth down throw. Tempers boiled over as Adams returned to the locker room, and he impatiently shoved a cameraman out of his way, sending him toppling to the ground. Now at 1-4 through their first five weeks, the Raiders can't afford to be without their superstar wide receiver for any amount of time, so they'll be hoping Adams' discipline is limited to a fine. However, given the cameraman's civilian status and apparent innocence, a typical unnecessary roughness or personal foul fine would seem woefully inadequate.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans was recently suspended one game for instigating an on-field brawl with cornerback Marshon Lattimore. Should Adams face similar discipline, he would miss a Week 6 contest against the Houston Texans.
