During Sunday’s defeat-snatched-from-the-jaws-of-victory against the Cowboys, Rams tight end Jared Cook celebrated a dropped touchdown pass by shoving the man who threw it, quarterback Austin Davis.

After the game, Cook apologized.

“My actions from today’s game were truly a mistake,” Cook said on Twitter, “unintentional and in the heat of the moment.  There is never an excuse for unsportsmanlike conduct and I apologize to everyone.  I want to thank my teammates again, Austin Davis and William Hayes for their support on the sideline, the Rams organization and especially to all of our fans for whom we fight so hard for your love and continued support.”

It sounds as if Davis has accepted the apology.

“On the sidelines we were all frustrated, we’re trying to kind of keep it together,” Davis said, via ESPN.com.  “That stuff happens all the time.  We talked, we’re fine.  I didn’t even think twice of it.”

The loss dropped the Rams to 1-2, putting them two games behind the 3-0 Cardinals and one game behind the 2-1 Seahawks.
