Former Cowboys wide receiver Michael Irvin won't make any more appearances on NFL Network for the remainder of Super Bowl week. 

Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reported that a woman complained about Irvin's conduct during their encounter on Sunday. 

Irvin, meanwhile, described this interaction as a "largely non-physical encounter." He claims he shook the woman's hand before parting ways. 

Alex Riethmiller, the vice president of communications for NFL Media, released a brief statement on this situation. 

"Michael Irvin will not be a part of NFL Network’s Super Bowl LVII week coverage,” said Riethmiller.

Irvin said he hadn't seen this woman prior to Sunday's encounter. 

"Honestly, I’m a bit baffled with it all,” Irvin said. “This all happened in a 45-second conversation in the lobby. When I got back after going out … I came into the lobby, and I talked to somebody. I talked to this girl. I don’t know her, and I talked to her for about 45 seconds. We shook hands. Then, I left. … That’s all I know."

Irvin indicated that a video of this encounter is available.
