Rams to handle joint practice scuffle involving Aaron Donald internally

·1 min read

The Los Angeles Rams and Cincinnati Bengals ended their joint practice session on Thursday prematurely due to a fight that involved Aaron Donald. With videos and other information being revealed from the situation, the Rams are going to discipline Donald and the other players involved internally, according to Jeremy Fowler.

The incident took place when the first-team offense of the Bengals was taking reps against the first-team defense of the Rams. La’el Collins and Leonard Floyd seemed to be the players involved in the thick of things before both of them let their emotions get the best of them.

Amid the skirmish that took place, both teams had players jump in to help their fellow teammates. Helmets were being thrown to the ground and Donald proceeded to pick one up, and he elected to dangerously swing it in the sea of players.

Luckily, neither team came away with an injury from the brawl between the two reigning conference champions. The NFL is unable to discipline players for practice occurrences, so the Rams and Bengals would have to handle things themselves.

Los Angeles is choosing to discipline the players involved in the scuffle behind closed doors, which will unquestionably include the All-Pro defensive tackle. While suspensions aren’t likely to materialize from the situation, fines are going to be handed out, though, we won’t know the amounts.
