Raiders linebacker Sio Moore apologizes for celebration

Oakland Raiders linebacker Sio Moore apologized for celebrating a sack along with rookie linebacker Khalil Mack during the final minute of their upset victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

It forced the Raiders to burn a timeout.

“I was so caught in the moment, that was an error I’ve got to make sure I clean up,” Moore said. “In another situation, in all seriousness, that can make the difference, and I’ve got to understand that. I do apologize for putting the guys in that situation because that could come up in another situation later. I can’t let my emotions get the best of me.”

Raiders coach Tony Sparano said he'll address the error in judgment.

“I’m going to let them enjoy this right now, but eventually we’ve got to talk about that, have a little conversation about that,” Sparano said. At that point I had to do something to stop the clock. It’s just two young players who have got to learn. I love their energy and their passion, but that’s something they’ve got to learn from.”
