Rams' DBs go at it with Chargers' WRs.
A handful of NFL teams across the league are holding joint practices this week as they prepare for Week 1 of the preseason, including the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers.
Naturally, it didn't take long for a brawl to break out between the two LA teams.
The fight reportedly went down after Rams defensive back Trumaine Johnson threw a punch Chargers wide receiver Dontrelle Inman following a pass interference call on Johnson. Rams DB Nickell Robey-Coleman then pushed Inman down which led to Chargers wideout Keenan Allen rushing into the crowd and abruptly spearing Robey-Coleman him into the ground.
Rams coach Sean McVay didn't seem to concerned with the scuffle, telling reporters, per ProFootballTalk,
“I think anytime you practice against somebody else guys are competitive, especially after the first day where there’s some good back and forth,” McVay told reporters.
“Starting out with the one on ones, guys are competitors that’s what makes them great. We always want to be smart about it, but those are things that we’ll be able to look at and figure out exactly what happened. Going to back and forth, it’s hard to exactly say what’s had gone on. But, I thought the guys did a nice job regaining their poise and finding a way to get through this practice where we both got something out of it.”
