Raiders-Rams Joint Practice Called Off After Mid-Game Fight
Joint practices during training camp season are interesting because they can either work out really well or turn south pretty fast. Unfortunately, the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Rams experienced the second scenario as they held a joint practice on Thursday ahead of their Week 2 preseason game.
According to multiple witnesses, a fight went down on the defensive side of the field. There's no report on how it began, but it ended with the Raiders heading back to their bus while the Rams finished up against their own defense.
This incident was the second time within 24 hours that the Rams and Raiders got into a fight at practice.
On Wednesday, Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey found himself in the middle of an altercation after he knocked Raiders running back Josh Jacobs' helmet off. The main difference here is that the two sides managed to put their differences aside and continue with the practice, which is something they couldn't pull off on Thursday.
The two sides won't meet again until their Week 2 preseason matchup on Saturday. The Raiders will enter the matchup as the 6.5-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
