Hug it out

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

The Vikings are going to battle with themselves in preparation for Sunday's meeting with the Bears at Soldier Field.

DE Erasmus James and RB Chester Taylor got into a scuffle in the locker room following Wednesday's practice that prompted a team meeting called by coach Brad Childress.

Taylor's right eye is reportedly black, the result of a punch thrown by James. The upshot of the whole deal is James is now on the injury report with a shoulder problem. No one knows if it came from the altercation. Things reportedly ended when Taylor heaved a chair at Taylor and inadvertently hit LT Bryant McKinnie. That's the kind of accuracy you expect from QB Tarvaris Jackson, if anyone.

Football fights are not uncommon, but they usually happen on the field during practice. Bears DT's Alfonso Boone and Tank Johnson got into a brush-up in a meeting room during training camp in 2006. Back in 2001, DT Carl Powell came racing back onto the practice field to go after fellow DT Keith Traylor after practice was over.
