Alabama's T.J. Yeldon apologizes for conduct

Posted: Updated:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama tailback T.J. Yeldon apologized for actions that drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty in the Texas A&M game.

 

Yeldon made a money sign and a double throat-slashing gesture toward the stands after running for a 4-yard touchdown in the top-ranked Crimson Tide's 49-42 victory.

 

Yeldon did not speak to the media on Monday but issued a statement through media relations apologizing for "my selfish action."

 

Yeldon says, "That is not the way I want to represent myself, my family and our team."

 

He says he will learn from it and "use better judgment in the future."
