GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) The early exits by New Orleans Saints wide receiver Jarvis Landry and offensive tackle James Hurst exemplified how the second day of joint practices with the Green Bay Packers got much more physical than the first.
Wednesday's scrimmage featured three scuffles, two between the Saints offense and Packers defense plus a third during special teams drills. The first skirmish came in the opening minutes and sent Landry to the locker room.
"Everybody goes in and they get coached up a little bit, and so they come out with a little bit more fire the next day," Saints coach Dennis Allen said. "You don't like seeing it, but it's part of what happens in these practices when you're going against another team. We dealt with it, we moved on from it and I thought we had a couple of good days of work."
