Bengals head coach Zack Taylor said the reason for the practice being called early was because things got "a little scuffle" in the final period, and both teams decided there was no need to run the last few plays.

"We got two really good days of work, so was it worth the extra few plays?" said Taylor. No," Taylor said. Donald, 31, three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, is unlikely.

"I don't know who provoked it," Rams head coach Sean McVey said after practice. "I think, in some cases, this teams are defending each other."

"Fortunately, my understanding is that no one has been hurt, and we will move on from that." It's not going to make a big deal than what it is. Not going to look at the fingers. "
