Over the past two weeks, NFL teams from around the league have reported for training camp as the 2021 season draws near.
One of the common themes in training camps is that tempers run hot. As players fight to make the final roster, sometimes fights break out as roster cuts get a little closer.
Earlier this week, the football world learned that nearly the entire New York Giants team was involved in a brawl. It’s something that happens all around the league, which was clear in Minnesota Vikings camp today.
Two former Ohio State stars, Wyatt Davis and Tuf Borland got into it at practice this afternoon. Davis, a star offensive lineman, reportedly threw a punch at his former teammate, a linebacker.

It appears that Davis and Borland were going at it a few times in practice this afternoon. A video from earlier in the afternoon showed Davis clearing Borland out during a run.

The Vikings selected Davis in the third round of the 2021 NFL draft. While his position on the team might be solidified, Borland, who was an undrafted free agent, is fighting to land a spot on the roster.
It’s clear tensions boiled over during play on Wednesday afternoon. At the end of the day, the current – and former – teammates will likely be friends again by the time they get into the locker room.
