The NFL has chosen to postpone taking action against wide receiver Davante Adams of the Las Vegas Raiders.
Adams shoved a photographer to the ground last week following their defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs.
Adams is scheduled to appear in court in November after the victim opted to press charges.
Instead of being charged with a state misdemeanor for violence, he is now being charged with a local code violation.
The NFL frequently gives players time to repent before punishing them. Before making any significant judgments on an event, the league is renowned for waiting until the inquiry is complete.
This was discovered during earlier examinations into a number of athletes, including Deshaun Watson and Alvin Kamara.
