A Massive Fight Broke Out at LSU's Practice, Involving Multiple Players

A brawl broke out at LSU's practice on Monday, involving many players. Head coach Brian Kelly wasn't happy about it.

A fight involving multiple teammates broke out Monday during an LSU Tigers football practice.

The team had moved from inside to outside, where the weather was hot — and the emotions were, too.

The fight started small but escalated, eventually involving players including linebacker Harold Perkins Jr., wide receiver Malik Nabers, cornerback Denver Harris, safety Major Burns and wide receiver Kyren Lacy, according to The Advocate's Wilson Alexander.

Nabers and Lacy were kicked out of practice immediately, and Perkins wasn't allowed back after participating in field drills.

Following the situation, head coach Brian Kelly got the team together and addressed it.

Reporters caught up with tight end Mason Taylor and defensive end Sai'vion Jones to discuss it.

"I feel like scuffling is something that always happens with football if you're passionate about it," Jones said. "If you're not having a scuffle, do you really want to play football?"

While not a great scene, it shows that there's a level of fire and competitiveness with the Tigers, and it appears they're putting the incident behind them.

Whether this becomes a lingering issue remains to be seen, but the season begins in less than a month against Florida State.
