You can easily tell that the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Bucs were tired of playing against their own teammates because now they are taking out their frustrations on players with different jerseys on.
The Jets face the Buccaneers in Game 2 of the NFL preseason on Saturday at MetLife Stadium. If practice is any indication, there may be a fight or two during that game.
According to NJ Advance Media reporter Andy Vasquez, the teams have had “six or seven” scuffles during their lone joint practice session.
New York Jets assistant Tony Oden collapsed after taking on “friendly fire” during a camp fight at joint practice with the Buccaneers. Oden exited practice on a cart after he went down on the sideline during Wednesday’s joint session with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, according to ESPN.
Luckly, head coach Robert Saleh told reporters Oden went to the hospital after catching a little “friendly fire” during a skirmish between the two teams, and that he’s expected to be fine.
Tensions are clearly running high ahead of game day this weekend. The Jets will practice by themselves Thursday and hold a walk-through practice Friday before facing Tampa Bay in Game 2 of the NFL preseason on Saturday at MetLife Stadium.
The Tampa Bay Bucs are coming off having Super Bowl aspirations for the past few years with Tom Brady on the team, but he retired this offseason, and the new-look team is expected to not be very good without him.
