This probably isn't the first time you've heard about current or former Florida Gators getting in trouble in practice. Or getting in trouble in Rio de Janeiro (cough cough Ryan Lochte), but I digress. On Thursday, Jaguars defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. was reportedly thrown out of a joint practice session with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for fighting.
The Jags and Bucs will be playing each other in the preseason this Saturday at EverBank Field at 7:30p.m. EST, hence kind of the point of having the joint practice together. The news of Fowler comes surprisingly very close to the news of current Florida cornerback Jalen Tabor and his teammate being suspended for Florida's opener against UMass for getting in a fight in practice.
We'll see if Fowler misses any game time on Saturday, but my guess is that's highly unlikely.
