Kyler Murray is finally reacting to getting slapped in the face by a fan during last weekend’s Raiders-Cardinals game.
After the Cardinals scored a game-winning touchdown in overtime, a fan slapped Murray while the QB celebrated near the end zone’s back.
After the slap, an angry Murray attempted to confront the fan in the stands.
Police in Las Vegas said Monday they’re investigating allegations that a fan in the stands struck Kyler Murray amid celebrations of Arizona’s win in OT.

Murray addressed the slap while speaking with the media on Wednesday and says while he doesn’t think fans should be touching players, he has no hard feelings towards the fan.
“Stuff happens fast. … I don’t know if he probably didn’t know where he was. I don’t know — it was a pretty live game. Vegas is Vegas.
“I’m sure he was having fun. But! Again, I don’t know.”
“I don’t think any player should be getting touched in that manner, but no hard feelings towards the guy. If I see him, I’d shake his hand. But it is what it is.”
“No hard feelings towards the guy.”

Murray’s comments are not as harsh as Kliff Kingsbury’s comments about the fan.
Earlier this week, the Cardinals head coach called the fan a “lowlife” who deserved to go to jail.
“I was just told about it,’’ Kingsbury said. “But I think that guy’s a lowlife, whoever did it, and I hope they arrest him, he gets fired and can never go to another game.’’
“He’s a lowlife.”
