Kansas City police introduced the price Wednesday, according to Josh Dubow of the Associated Press.
As Adams was walking off the field following Monday’s loss, he pushed the photographer to the ground before proceeding to the tunnel on his way to the Las Vegas locker room.

The photographer was transported to the hospital to be treated for whiplash, a headache and possibly a minor concussion, according to TMZ Sports.
After the sport, Adams issued an apology to the photographer whilst talking with journalists, according to ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez:
“I need to ask for forgiveness to the man, there was once some man operating off the sector, and he ran, like jumped in entrance of me coming off the sector and I ran into him, roughly driven him, and he ended up at the floor. So I sought after to express regret to him for that as a result of that was once simply frustration blended with him actually simply operating in from of me. I don’t have answered that method, however that is how I to begin with answered. So, I need to ask for forgiveness to him for that.”
The star receiver also issued a similar apology on social media:
Adams is facing a possible fine and/or suspension from the NFL, which is still reviewing the incident, according to the Associated Press.
The 29-year-old caught three passes for 124 yards and two touchdowns in Monday’s loss to the Chiefs. The Raiders are now 1-4 on the season and have dug themselves into quite a hole in the AFC West.
Adams has been the Raiders’ best receiver this season, catching 29 passes for 414 yards and five touchdowns in five games. If he is suspended, more pressure will be placed on receivers Hunter Renfrow and Mack Hollins. Albert Wilson and Keelan Cole will also likely see more playing time.
The Raiders are entering their bye week but will return to action on Oct. 23 against the Houston Texans.
