Ryan Punishes Team For Fight

A day after a 20-player brawl highlighted a chippy practice, Jets coach Rex Ryan had his players run a series of sprints Tuesday as punishment for a few minor scuffles on the field.

With most of the media off to the side speaking with team owner Woody Johnson, , linebacker Demario Davis and running back Terrance Ganaway– both rookies — got into it after Ganaway was a little too physical on a play. Ryan immediately called everyone over to tell them to be physical, but smart and not selfish.

There was another skirmish a few minutes later involving cornerback Antonio Cromartie and rookie wide receiver Stephen Hill, with Cromartie threatening to punch him. Moments later, Cromartie and tight end Dustin Keller got into it.

“Apparently, someone didn’t get the message,” Ryan said, referring to Cromartie, and Ryan immediately called the team together. He shouted at his players and then had them run gassers — sprints from sideline to sideline — for at least 10 minutes.

The Jets have one more day of practice in Cortland before their preseason opener Friday at Cincinnati.
