TEMPE, Ariz. — Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray said Wednesday he has “no hard feelings” toward the person who punched him in the face while Murray was celebrating his team’s 29-23 overtime victory over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.
Murray said he did not feel as if he had been attacked as he sat in courtside seats among a large crowd of fans.
“No, these things happen quickly,” Murray said. “I know every person I’ve punched in the face, I did it for a reason. I wonder if he probably didn’t know where he was. I don’t know. It was a pretty lively game. Vegas is Vegas. I’m sure he had fun .”
However, Murray also said he doesn’t think any player should be “touched that way.”
Video of the fight showed Murray celebrating with fans along the wall that separates the court and court-level box. Fans hug and grab Murray and then a hand comes to his face. Murray responded, confronting the person who touched him and had some words for him.
Las Vegas police were investigating a battery complaint that was filed Sunday night.
“No hard feelings against the guy,” Murray said Wednesday. “If I saw him, I’d shake his hand, but that’s the way it is.”
Murray said he won’t miss the outdoor festivities.
“I would do it again if I could,” he said.
