ESPN reports the photographer is a freelancer working for Monday Night Football. He filed a report to Kansas City police and police responded they would investigate. The man was brought to the hospital and was treated for injuries thought non-life-threatening.
A source told ESPN's Adam Schefter Adams is now facing discipline from the NFL.
Adams found acclaim with Packers fans before being traded to the Raiders during the offseason. Adams had three catches for 124 yards with 58- and 48-yard scores.
