Scrimmage throws fuel on Jets-Giants rivalry
By wire services
Published August 7, 2005
ALBANY, N.Y. - Are you ready for some footbrawl?
In what was supposed to be a friendly scrimmage during training camp, a wild fight erupted Saturday between the Jets and Giants.
The joint practice day turned into two ugly, fight-filled sessions. It began on the first play with a fight between Jets safety Oliver Celestin and Giants tight end Jeremy Shockey and included a heated argument between Jets defensive coordinator Donnie Henderson and Giants coach Tom Coughlin, several minor skirmishes and two sideline-clearing brawls.
On the second play of a nine-on-seven drill pitting the Giants offense against the Jets defense, Celestin shoved Shockey in the back. Shockey retaliated by throwing a punch, which led Jets linebacker Jonathan Vilma to grab Shockey from behind. Then safety Erik Coleman jumped into the pile.
"The next thing I know," Shockey said, "everybody's fighting."
BRONCOS: Quarterback Jake Plummer and defensive lineman Mario Fatafehi each hurt a knee, though Plummer later returned. Coach Mike Shanahan said Fatafehi likely hurt ligaments in his left knee. The early prognosis was that he would miss 1-3 weeks.
PANTHERS: Cornerback Ken Lucas pulled his hamstring on the second play of Carolina's scrimmage and sat out the rest of the workout. Coach John Fox did not know the extent of the injury.
RAIDERS: Quarterback Rich Gannon ended an 18-year career, retiring after missing most of last season with a broken vertebra in his neck. The 2002 NFL MVP has signed with CBS Sports as a game analyst. Gannon guided the Raiders to the 2003 Super Bowl against the Bucs before spending much of the past two seasons injured.
RAVENS: Receiver Mark Clayton signed a five-year, $8.2-million contract, ending a five-day holdout. Clayton was the 22nd overall pick.
REDSKINS: Coach Joe Gibbs apologized for a remark he made during the team's Fan Appreciation Day. Asked about the Cowboys as fans screamed questions at him Friday, he jokingly said: "I know we don't have any Dallas people here. They're the ugliest people in the world."
STEELERS: Running back Duce Staley is scheduled for an MRI test today to make sure there is nothing wrong with his aching right knee. Staley needed fluid drained off the knee after one day of practice, a condition that sometimes can indicate a problem that requires arthroscopic surgery.
TEXANS: Running back Domanick Davis got a new five-year deal, scrapping his league-minimum contract. Davis had 2,200 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns in two seasons. He was in the last year of a three-year contract that paid $360,000 annually.
TOKYO - Michael Vick and Peyton Manning gave the Japanese fans what they wanted, playing into the second quarter and showing why they are two of the NFL's best quarterbacks.
Vick displayed some of his trademark scrambling in the preseason opener, gaining 10 yards on his only run in the Falcons' 27-21 win over the Colts.
He was 4-for-7 for 51 yards.
Manning threw a 2-yard touchdown to Troy Walters at 6:45 of the first quarter, giving the Colts a 7-0 lead. He was 6-for-8 for 36 yards with one interception.
Vick's replacement, Matt Schaub, threw two touchdowns in the first half and was the MVP.
