Morgan has been dealing with the fallout since Sunday evening, but insisted he’s not bothered by it.

“It’s not hard at all. I’ve been in this situation. I’ve seen it happen, and I’m one to learn from my mistakes as well as other mistakes,” he said. “I just go out there and keep building, keep staying positive and keep working.”

Given the public backlash, all teammates can do is feel for Morgan.

“Mistakes happen. Most people in their life, when they make a big mistake, it’s not viewed by millions. They don’t have to worry about death threats because they can make it in the privacy of their own homes,” Cofield said. “I’m sure he’s going to have opportunities to rebound, and hopefully, he can make up for it with a big play here or there.”
