CINCINNATI - Bengals cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones apologized Friday for claiming Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was faking a concussion at the end of the wild-card game last Saturday night.
"I apologize sincerely. Get well," Jones said in a video on Instagram late Friday afternoon.
Earlier, the Steelers ruled Brown out for their divisional matchup Sunday with Denver after the two-time All-Pro was not cleared by doctors.
Jones said in the aftermath of Cincinnati's 18-16 loss that Brown winked at him before being helped off the field after taking a shot to the head from Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict.
"Antonio Brown was not hurt. I know he was faking it," Jones said on the "Dan Patrick Show" on Monday. "Go back and look at the play. If you go back and slow-motion the play, you tell me that Vontaze hit him in the head or did his shoulder pads barely touch him?"
Also Friday, Jones was fined $28,940 for contact with an official, a foul that moved the Steelers closer for their game-winning field goal in the final seconds.
