The NFL said Thursday it is reviewing the conduct of Redskins wide receiver Terrelle Pryor Sr. and Chiefs fans during and after Monday night’s game at Arrowhead Stadium in Kansas City, Mo, Master Tesfatsion and Mark Maske of the Washington Post report.
Pryor said on his Instagram story Wednesday that he was the subject of racial slurs shouted by Chiefs fans, including after the game when cellphone video captured Pryor flipping off Chiefs fans while he entered the tunnel.
The video, obtained by TMZ Sports, shows Pryor being restrained while walking through the tunnel following the Redskins’ 29-20 loss to the Chiefs. It shows Pryor flipping off fans in the section near the tunnel and yelling profanities. Pryor stretched out his arm, as if he would fling his helmet into that general direction, but walked to the locker room.
“I’m going to refer all calls to the league’s office,” Redskins Senior Vice President of Communications Tony Wyllie said Thursday.
Joe Lockhart, the NFL’s executive vice president of communications and public affairs, reiterated during a conference call Thursday morning with reporters: “We are looking into this, all aspects of it.”
He also said: “We have no tolerance for racial remarks directed at anyone in an NFL stadium.”
