NFL: The Green Bay Packers and Cincinnati Bengals are taking part in joint practices this week. Those practices are leading up to their pre-season opener on Friday Night. Joint practices are great ways for teams to gauge how they look against another team. They also bring out the best in players as they are now going against someone with a different jersey on. Often times tensions can flare at these practices, and that’s exactly what happened today.
The Green Bay Packers And Cincinnati Bengals Got Into A Fight Today At Practice
Aaliyan Mohammed of Wisconsin Sports Heroics broke the news earlier today:
Elgton Jenkins is not the kind of player that teams want to mess with. For reference, Jenkins went toe-for-toe in an exchange with Aaron Donald during a playoff game. Today, multiple Green Bay Packers beat reporters told of Jenkins getting into it with the Bengals. The first fight resulted in a big scuffle that took a while to break up.
The fight took place after Bengals linebacker Germaine Pratt was put on his backside by Elgton Jenkins blocking a screen. Pratt got up and took a swing at Jenkins leading to the scuffle per Tom Silverstein. Jenkins was taken aside to calm down and then he came back in. However, there was clearly still some bad blood.
The second fight came when Elgton Jenkins took a swing at D.J. Reader. Jenkins day was done and the Green Bay Packers did not have him for the remainder of their joint practice. The Packers coaches made the decision to pull Jenkins after his second altercation in a short span of time. Surely, the Packers do not want players fighting in general, but they especially do not want their superstar left guard swinging at helmets with his bare hands.

Aside from Kenny Clark (former wrestler) I think Elgton Jenkins is the last guy I would want to fight.
