Travis Kelce says he regrets shoving offensive coordinator Eric Bieniemy on the sideline during a moment of frustration in Sunday night's loss to the Indianapolis Colts.
"We're good," the Kansas City Chiefs tight end said. "Me and Coach Bieniemy have a very close relationship. I love him. He's helped me out tremendously as a person, as a professional and I'm sure he'll keep doing that throughout the rest of my career. ... I love the guy. That will never change. I appreciate him being on my tail to get me going.
"As far as what happened on the sideline, sometimes in football you get a little heated with your brothers or your coaches."
Kelce shoved Bieniemy on the sideline after he dropped a difficult but catchable pass early in the game. The two had to separated.
"He's like a father figure, in terms of being there for me on the field,'' Kelce said. "We're wired a little bit the same when it comes to our competitive edge. ... It's something immediately I regretted and I just wanted to make it good and let him know that, 'You know what? I'm ready to rock and roll for you.'"
