The New York Giants‘ first day of padded practice at training camp ended abruptly Tuesday when coach Joe Judge angrily addressed and punished his players for a teamwide brawl that included starting quarterback Daniel Jones at the bottom of the pile.
Judge could be heard delivering an expletive-laden tirade at his team after the scuffle, which started when tight end Evan Engram retaliated after a late hit to running back Corey Clement.
After ordering the players to run 100-yard wind sprints and to do multiple rounds of pushups, Judge then gave his fiery address before ending the practice.
Jones said he wasn’t injured during the fight and said the Giants needed to “do a better job of controlling” their emotions and excitement during the intense padded practice.
Jones also said the players “got the message” from Judge and, when asked why he got involved in the brawl, responded that he is “part of the team.”
