Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams has come under fire after pushing a credentialed on-field worker following his team's loss on Monday Night Football. Adams apologized after the game, but he's now facing potential NFL and legal consequences.

On Wednesday, charges were officially levied against Adams.

Kansas City police have announced that Adams was charged with misdemeanor assault as a result of his push, which was caught on camera and circulated around social media. The worker claims to have suffered "whiplash and head ache" along with a "possible minor concussion."

The wide receiver now has a court date set for Nov. 10.

Aside from the legal side, Adams is likely to face discipline from the league office as well. A suspension very well could be coming for the Raiders star, though it's unclear as of now how much time he would miss.

Las Vegas is on a bye in Week 6, so a potential suspension won't immediately impact Adams, but there's a real possibility the team is without him in Week 7 at the very least.
