08:11 AM ET 08.19 | At the end of a practice that was characterized as intense and featured "numerous shoving matches," LeGarrette Blount punched a teammate in the face mask. Blount immediately sought out Jeff Fisher on the field. "I promised to him it was behind me and that was in my past and it just came up again," a dejected Blount said. "I got into a situation where the defense pushed me too far." Blount was the ballcarrier when his helmet was knocked off and several defensive players shoved him. When defensive end Eric Bakhtiari got in his face, Blount punched him. ... Fisher defended Blount, who missed practices on Monday and Tuesday after the death of his grandmother. "I am not disappointed whatsoever," Fisher said.

If he wants to punch something, he should take up boxing or MMA

So... that cheap shot he administered while at Oregon wasn't an isolated incident, it seems?

Sucker Punch? That goofball had it coming! I loved the look on his goofy face as he got jacked. I bet he won't go slappin the other teams shoulder pads after a tough loss again...lesson learned!

A short fuse... you know everyone on the Titans schedule this season will be hoping to get into his head early and often.

Someone needs anger management classes.

August 19, 2010  08:41 AM ET

Well this seems to be a re-occuring theme with this idiot, huh? You would think that he'd have learned his lesson. Guess not. That's why he played for Oregon...

August 19, 2010  08:42 AM ET

A punch thrown at an NFL camp? Inconceivable!

I think its sad, that the first thing you do when you get flustered, is throw a punch. all it shows is you have a weak mind.

August 19, 2010  09:39 AM ET

I wish je would punch Chuck Cecil, on the kisser so he can learn how to teach this guys how to avoid giving out the long pass on 3rd and long!!!! If this keeps on we will look at a 5-11 season and Bud, don't want to pick first he is to stingy to do that!!!!
