Jets have brief brawl at practice

Tue., Aug. 7, 2012

Tebowmania turned into Wrestlemania for the New York Jets during one big training camp throwdown. About 20 players were involved in a brief brawl during a chippy practice Monday after running back Joe McKnight and safety D’Anton Lynn tangled after a play. Lynn, the son of Jets running backs coach Anthony Lynn, shoved McKnight out of bounds after a swing pass from Greg McElroy. An angry McKnight then fired the football at Lynn. “That was a first,” Lynn said. “That’s never happened to me before, so I lost my temper for a second.” Players ran over to the two and a pileup ensued, with players rolling into an area where reporters were watching. Several reporters scattered as the players jumped on each other and wrestled a few feet in front of a barricade where fans sit. – AP
