Former Patriots running back Kevin Faulk, now the LSU director of player personnel, was involved in a postgame altercation after the Tigers lost to Texas A&M on Saturday.

Hilary Scheinuk, a photographer for The Advocate of Baton Rouge, captured Faulk scuffling with a man wearing an Aggies shirt and sideline credentials.

An LSU official told The Advocate team special assistant Steve Kragthorpe, who suffers from Parkinson’s disease, was punched on the field after the Tigers’ seven-overtime, 74-72 loss to the Aggies. According to Gordy Rush, the sideline reporter for LSU radio, the man in the red shirt pictured throwing punches with Faulk was the one who punched Kragthorpe.

Faulk is a three-time Super Bowl champion and member of the Patriots’ Hall of Fame. In January, the 42-year-old Louisiana native joined the staff at his alma mater, where he was an All-American running back
