Cincinnati Bengals linebacker Germaine Pratt expressed regret for his reaction that went viral after the team's AFC Championship Game loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday.

As Pratt entered the locker room at Arrowhead Stadium, Pratt was spotted yelling, "Why would you touch the f---ing quarterback?," referencing Joseph Ossai's penalty for unnecessary roughness that preceded the game-winning field goal.

On Monday, Pratt said the way he responded was incorrect.

"I was in the moment," Pratt said. "I was wrong. I would say I was wrong. As a man, you can look yourself in the mirror and say, 'I was wrong.' I wasn't a great teammate in that moment. That doesn't define me as a man."
