On Thursday, the Raiders and Rams scrimmaged for the second time in two days, and after a huge brawl, coach Jon Gruden cut practice short and sent everyone back to their hotel rooms.
Earlier today, photos of the brawl popped up on social media; one looked to show Clelin Ferrell swinging his helmet at what looks to be starting LB Samson Ebukam(#50) of the Rams.
However, it’s not clear if it is Ferrell swinging his helmet, or if his helmet was ripped off by a Rams player.
Not surprisingly, Johnathan Abram is also in the middle of the fight, according to the images. And although it’s not very clear, a video did leak on Youtube, and it looks like Abram was one of the players who took a swing. It’s not clear who he threw a punch at.
From the images and video, it’s clear that the Raiders had many more players around the melee, and even Raiders RB Josh Jacobs made a comment regarding what he observed as the fight began.
“If You look at our guys and see how we reacted, and then see their guys and how they just let things happen, I like the fact that our team got the fighting spirit and has each other’s backs,” Jacobs said at Thursday’s presser.
The fight started during special teams as Roderic Teamer, and Rasul Douglas got into it with a Rams defender. From there, the tensions grew, and eventually, Maxx Crosby and Yannick Ngakoue ran onto the field to back up a teammate of theirs. From there, it only got worst, which led to Gruden ending practice earlier.
