Adam "Pacman" Jones accused Antonio Brown of during and after the Steelers' victory over the Bengals; a game in which Brown took a serious head shot from Vontaze Burfict that gave him a concussion and took him out of the game. Jones said Antonio Brown "deserved a grammy" for his "performance."

The Bengals' cornerback went on social media immediately after the game and accused Brown of faking his injury to draw the flag. Jones doubled-down on his words when he went on "Inside the NFL" in an interview with Pittsburgh's own, Brandon Marshall, and said that he would apologize to Brown should he not be able to play in the team's next matchup against the Denver Broncos, as that would be the only way to prove to Jones that Brown was not faking.

Well, Brown was declared out for this Sunday's game, and Jones put out his apology.

Jones' apology comes hours after Brown was deemed unable to pass the concussion protocol, but it should not have taken an entire week of failed concussion tests to make Jones realize how wrong he was.
