TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) - Arizona kicker Neil Rackers has apologized for striking an NFL Films video camera with his helmet as he left the field following the Cardinals' 37-31 overtime loss to San Francisco last Sunday.
Rackers had just missed what would have been a winning 32-yard field goal.
The camera was knocked into the face of the cameraman, but he reportedly was not seriously hurt. The Cardinals, in confirming the incident, did not identify the cameraman.
``I was obviously very frustrated after the game, but that's no excuse for acting like I did,'' Rackers said in a statement released by the team. ``I've reached out to the gentleman involved to apologize personally, and I also want to apologize to the Cardinals organization and fans. I was wrong and I'm sorry.''
The Cardinals did not say what punishment Rackers faced.
``Obviously, this is not acceptable behavior under any circumstances, and it has been addressed with Neil,'' the team said in a statement. ``Several members of the organization have spoken to the photographer to apologize and let him know that the appropriate measures are being taken.''
