[ESPN.com] Saying he was “kind of disgusted with myself,” a nervous-looking Larry Johnson apologized Wednesday for behavior that has led to an NFL investigation and to his benching for a second straight week.
“I want to start off saying I apologize to the Hunt family, my family, first and foremost, the fans, teammates, coaches and players,” Kansas City’s two-time Pro Bowl running back said.
“This is the first time in my life I actually had to stand up, I mean actually woke up and kind of be disgusted with myself and disgusted as far as the way my life and my career is heading right now.”
Johnson followed coach Herm Edwards to the podium, spoke without notes and left without taking questions. Edwards had announced a few minutes earlier that Johnson would be benched, not suspended, for a second straight week.
