The Las Vegas Raiders host the Houston Texans in Week 7 and look to get on track coming out of their bye week. The Raiders will have wide receiver Davante Adams in the lineup in spite of his misdemeanor assault charge in Kansas City.

Adams was charged in Kansas City Municipal Court last week after pushing a cameraman to the ground following the Raiders Week 5 loss to the Chiefs. Adams apologized for shoving the person but also noted the circumstances.

“Before I answer anything else, I want to apologize to the guy — I seen some guy running off the field, and he ran or jumped in front of me, coming off the field and I bumped into him and kind of pushed him and he ended up on the ground,” Adams said.

Due to this now being a criminal matter, Adams could face some kind of discipline under the NFL’s personal conduct policy. However, any discipline will not happen until the legal process concludes.
