Jared Cook apologizes for pushing Austin Davis

St. Louis Rams tight end Jared Cook apologized for shoving quarterback Austin Davis during the team's 34-31 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

Cook dropped what would have been a touchdown in the contest. In a moment he appears to regret, he shoved Davis out of his way on the sideline for no apparent reason, which caused a brief conflict with other teammates looking to hold him accountable for his actions.

Cook released a statement on the matter.

"My actions from [Sunday's] game were truly a mistake — unintentional and in the heat of the moment," Cook said. "There is never an excuse for unsportsmanlike conduct and I apologize to everyone. I want to thank my teammates again, Austin Davis and William Hayes for their support on the sidelines — the Rams organization and especially to all of our fans for whom we fight so hard for your love and continued support."
