  • Brawl breaks out at Training Camp.

    Dolphins coach Adam Gase doesn’t mind flare-ups during training camp. But Tuesday night’s temper tantrum was enough to bring practice to a halt for a minute while Gase told the team to tone it down.

    A brawl lasting roughly 45 seconds broke out among so many players — about two dozen — it was impossible to tell who the two principles were. It began as a scrum at the center of the field, near one 20-yard line. It appeared to be settling down before it was rekindled about 5 yards away.

    After players unpiled and defensive end Farrington Huguenin remained down, requiring a cart, the scene appeared to take on an ominous tone. But Dolphins players and Gase agreed Huguenin actually was injured moments before the incident.

    “He’ll be all right,” Gase said. “He got hurt before whatever happened down here. I just looked over and there were a bunch of bodies all over each other.”

    Gase was concerned because players were wearing only limited protection.

    “We had a couple of guys get hit and go to the ground and the biggest thing about practicing with not full pads, being in shoulder pads, last thing we want is anybody going to the ground, somebody getting rolled up on,” he said.

    The seed may have been planted when running back Damien Williams hit Huguenin in the midsection while pass-blocking in a manner that triggered a lecture from Ndamukong Suh.

    Williams said Suh told him, “We don’t want to hurt anybody.” Williams added, “You don’t want to see a guy go down because once somebody else goes down, that’s like a domino effect. Everybody starts falling.”

    The incident occurred a day after defensive end Chris McCain and offensive lineman Laremy Tunsil scuffled.

    Offensive lineman Jamil Douglas said, “It’s camp. Things are going to get chippy. That’s how it is. We’re one big family.”
    While it takes two to have an argument, it only takes one to walk away.

    Hopefully it's a good sign...Maybe we won't be such a soft team this season!

      From what I've gathered so far, I'd guess the brawl was between all of our O linemen vs our starting defensive front four and the defense won. Joking. Good to see their keeping it feisty out there.
