There were a few big scuffles at New England Patriots practice earlier this week, which we avoided mentioning just because there are big scuffles at training camp every year throughout the NFL. That's partly what training camp is for.
(Hit the same guy in scorching heat day after day and try not to fight.)
These were not one-on-one battles. "Seemingly every player on the team" was involved, with many trying to serve as peacemakers. After the fights, there was a players-only huddle in the middle of the field.
(In some actual football news, Brandon Lloyd, Jabar Gaffney and Deion Branch all returned to practice after missing time with minor injuries.)
