“We don’t have time for that,” head coach Dennis Allen said after practice. “I sent two guys in today and we got to get our work done. We’ve got to learn as a team how to compete and how to play and how to practice, and push ourselves to the limit, and yet not take it over the edge.”

Allen confirmed that two were sent to the locker room. The first-year head coach said he had a conversation with the entire team about taking it too far and will talk “with those two players sometime between now and next practice.” 

“We are in the third day in a row in practice,” Allen said. “People begin to get a little bit tired and things get a little bit chippy. It’s not unusual for something like that to occur during a training camp. It’s certainly something we don’t want to see happen. It’ll be addressed and we’ll move forward.”
