The New England Patriots and the Carolina Panthers, who are currently preparing for the next NFL season (from September 8), took part in collective training on Wednesday before facing each other two days later in a preseason game. But the players of both teams came to blows during this training session.
A late tackle on Christian McCaffrey, the running back of the Panthers, set fire to the powder. In the ensuing scuffle, a Patriots fan suffered a foot injury after New England defense end Deatrick Wise (124 kg) fell on her during the fight. The audience was close to the training ground.
Robinson (Carolina) kicked out of training Tuesday and Wednesday
The supporter refused the treatment offered by the medical staff of her favorite team, according to ESPN. As an apology, the New England franchise offered him tickets to one game of the season. Three players involved in the fight – Deatrick Wise, Chubba Hubbard, another Carolina runner, and Kenny Robinson, a Panthers safety – were asked to return to the locker room.
Robinson had already been kicked out of practice the day before after a fight with Patriots wide receiver Kristian Wilkerson. On Wednesday, just before Wise’s action on McCaffrey which sparked the fight, Kenny Robinson had already violently tackled Wilkerson to the ground, concussing him. A settlement of accounts?
