Matt Rhule nor Bill Belichick can keep their players in check this week. Things got chippy at the Patriots vs. Panthers joint practices for the second consecutive day.
Several players from both teams were thrown out of practice Tuesday due to a brawl in which punches were thrown. On Wednesday, more players would be tossed as well. Things derailed quickly Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey took a hard hit from Patriots defensive lineman Deatrich Wise while heading toward the sideline.
McCaffrey ended up throwing the ball at a New England Patriots player before fighting broke out. Panthers running back Chuba Hubbard and Patriots defensive lineman Deatrich Wise were both ejected from practice following the brawl.
As the players were jostling one another, the Panthers threw Wise into the front row of the stands, where he landed on a woman.
Patriots officials immediately came over to check on the woman after the incident. Per Curran, she was OK and refused medical attention; she was hit in the foot by a helmet.
Kenny Robinson would later get tossed from practice for the 2nd-straight day for a hit delivered on Kristian Wilkerson that led to a fist fight.
Neither Bill Belichick nor Matt Rhule will be happy with these results.
