The Atlanta Falcons are their end Fourth day of training camp Two separate fights broke out on the field early Saturday morning, resulting in defensive tackle Jalen Dalton being asked to leave, according to multiple reports.
Dalton, who was released by the New Orleans Saints in May, was ejected from practice after taking a swing at offensive tackle Jermaine Ifedi after a drill, The Athletic reported. Moments later, Anthony Rush knocked center Jonathon Harrison to the ground after being hit from behind.
But Rush made light of the situation after a short session.
“It was all about lunch. They took away all the forks and stuff, so I had to eat with my hands. I didn’t like that very much,” Rush said, according to the outlet. “I had to get the last piece of roast chicken, so I’m not too happy about that.”

ESPN’s Michael Rothstein reports that the head coach is Arthur Smith “not happy” Dalton after the incident, but he later praised the team’s competitiveness in his comments to the media.
“Nobody’s really done anything that dumb,” Smith said. “I love having guys you have to pull behind rather than push. They’re competitive as hell. We’ve had the pleasure of working with these guys, it’s unbelievable.”
