It seems as if this year there have been more combined practices, well maybe it seems this way because every day a fight breaks out. Here we are again during the Ravens and Colts joint practice a decent sized fight broke out.
Everything started after Colts receiver K.J. Brent was carted off with a knee injury.
Then after that during a special teams drills, Colts linebacker Antonio Morrison knocked Ravens linebacker Albert McClellan to the ground. McClellan got up, threw Morrison down and then a hail of punches came.
Here is another view:
Colts rookie head coach Frank Reich was quite unhappy after the joint session ended.
“We’re football players. We’re professional football players. We’re not fighters,” Reich fumed. “This is not the MMA, we’re not in a cage, so that’s unacceptable. We’ve got little kids up in the stands. We’re role models. That’s not what we’re looking for.
“It’s bush league. It’s undisciplined. Teams that do that, and players who do that, lose. That’s not the team we want to be.”
John Harbaugh had a different reaction:
“You know, it cracks me up,” the Ravens head coach said. “Is this a healthy obsession that we all have with fights in training camp practices? It’s really nothing, much ado about nothing. It got broken up pretty quickly, and we’re moving on.”
