Bills center Eric Wood got into a brawl with undrafted rookie Bryan Johnson during a training camp goal-line drill. Punches were thrown. Helmets were ripped off. Wood, unsurprisingly, was not happy about it. An enthusiastic Buffalo News headline writer described it as “a murderous rage.”
Running back Fred Jackson had slithered into the end zone. The play was over, but the battle was not.
Before the fight could be broken up, tight end Scott Chandler had taken Johnson to the ground. Chandler’s helmet also was torn off. An incensed Wood marched toward Johnson and yelled, “I’ll f—— kill you!”
Johnson, a roster long shot from West Texas A&M, stalked away without his helmet.
This is probably par for the course for training camp in August. Though, it may be worth noting Bills DC Jim Schwartz has a history of players being hilariously undisciplined. See: Haynesworth, Albert and Suh, Ndamukong
