The Green Bay Packers just needed to defeat the Detroit Lions at Lambeau Field on Sunday night in order to clinch a playoff spot.
However, the Lions got the 20-16 victory as Aaron Rodgers‘ future with the team and in the NFL remains murky after the loss.
One of the most talked about moments of the game had nothing to do with Rodgers.
Instead, it was rookie Quay Walker, who was ejected for shoving a member of the Lions training staff.
On Monday morning, Walker took to Twitter to share his thoughts and offer his apology:
I understand I have to face everything that comes with the decision I’ve made and I’m definitely paying for it now.
— Quay (@QuayWalker_) January 9, 2023
“I want to apologize publicly about what happened Sunday night. I reacted off of my emotions again and take full responsibility of making another stupid decision. Since then I’ve questioned myself on why did I do what I did when the trainer was doing his job!! I was wrong!!” he tweeted.
This isn’t the first time that Walker has been involved in an incident like this, either.
Earlier this season, Walker was ejected for shoving somebody on the Buffalo Bills sideline.
Walker was ejected from the game in the fourth quarter and was visibly upset as he was leaving the field in such an important contest.
The NFL should be considering handing down a fine for Walker, and head coach Matt LaFleur was not happy with Walker’s actions after the game.
However, Walker apologized, although he will have a long offseason ruminating on what happened in his rookie campaign and trying to fix what went wrong as the Packers sit at home watching the playoffs.
