Buffalo Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson issued an apology on Monday for forcefully pushing a Philadelphia Eagles fan seated behind the Bills’ bench. Lawson asserted that the fan had been making threatening comments directed at players and their families.

Defensive tackle Jordan Phillips engaged in a verbal exchange with the spectator, prompting Lawson to shove him.

In his Instagram apology, Lawson revealed that the fan had been heckling players from the onset of the game. Despite the Bills requesting stadium security to remove the individual, he was allowed to remain in his seat. Lawson acknowledged that emotions escalated, leading to his regrettable action. He expressed remorse for his mistake while emphasizing that certain boundaries should not be breached.

Teammate Jordan Phillips echoed Lawson’s sentiments in a message on his own Instagram account, underscoring his intolerance for threats against himself or his family. The NFL has not yet commented on the matter, and the Philadelphia Eagles have indicated that they are reviewing the incident.
