OWINGS MILLS, Md. (AP) Lamar Jackson apologized for his vulgar tweet following Baltimore's loss last weekend, saying Friday that he was angry and reacted.

Jackson hadn't been made available since the situation since Sunday.

"I was just reacting at the time. I was mad. I wasn't thinking about actions," he said. "It was like, bitter. I was bitter. I feel like you should be bitter after a loss though. No smiles. In fact, the fans should be mad we lost too, but not mad at us. We tried.


Bears' Fields set to return vs. Packers
