Green Bay Packers linebacker Quay Walker has apologized for shoving a Detroit Lions trainer late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s 20-16 loss.
Walker issued his apology to the Lions and their medical staff on Twitter, writing he takes “full responsibility” for what happened:
I understand I have to face everything that comes with the decision I’ve made and I’m definitely paying for it now.
While Lions running back D’Andre Swift was on the ground with an apparent injury, a trainer came out to check on him. There was a brief scrum in the area, with Walker shoving the Lions employee in the back. He was assessed a 15-yard personal foul penalty and ejected from the game.
