Titans rookie Blount punches teammate at practice
By Chris Chase

A player on the other side of the line of scrimmage was once again on the receiving end of a punch from running back LeGarrette Blount. This time, though, it was a member of Blount's own team.

The Tennessee Titans rookie running back took a swing at teammate Eric Bakhtiari after a testy practice on Wednesday night during which numerous Titans players scuffled with one another, according to The Tennessean.

Blount was the ball carrier on one play and had his helmet ripped off as the action was whistled dead. He stormed away to the end zone while other players pushed and shoved, seemingly avoiding any conflict. But when Blount walked back to the scrum, defensive end Eric Bakhtiari whispered something in his ear, Blount gave him a shove and then punched him in the facemask, a scene very similar to what happened last September when he was at Oregon and he clocked Boise State linebacker Byron Hout after the game.

Blount immediately apologized to Titans coach Jeff Fisher, saying he promised to put this behind him. Fisher accepted the apology.
