Alabama's back Yeldon apologizes
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.''
