Kyler Murray, the quarterback for the Arizona Cardinals, said to reporters on Wednesday that he didn’t feel like he had been assaulted over the weekend and that he had “no hard feelings” for the fan who struck him following Arizona’s overtime victory in Las Vegas.

After Byron Murphy Jr.’s game-ending fumble return, the quarterback high-fived with audience members as the Cardinals celebrated their comeback triumph.

The quarterback appeared to have been struck in the face by a fan, and Murray appeared shocked in the footage of the event.

No, this stuff occurs quickly, Murray reportedly told ESPN. “I know every person I’ve hit in the face, I did it for a reason. 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 Murray said that he believes a player shouldn’t be touched “in that manner.”

Murray was not identified as the person who lodged a battery complaint to Las Vegas police, per the Associated Press.
As opposed to that, the spokeswoman told the AP that “a stadium spectator hit a professional football player.”

“No hard feelings toward the guy,” Murray said. “If I seen him, I’d shake his hand, but it is what it is.”
