Titans rookie White brawls with teammate at practice
Associated Press


CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -- Rookie running back LenDale White got into a brawl Thursday morning with a teammate at the Tennessee Titans training camp.

The rookie out of Southern California, who fell to the 45th pick in the draft overall in April, started clashing with the defense on a running play. He was walking back toward the huddle when bumped.

White walked back, and safety Donnie Nickey pushed back at the rookie with his helmet. A recording by a television cameraman picked up linebacker Keith Bulluck yelling that White had spit in Nickey's face.

A few plays later, White couldn't catch an outlet pass from Matt Mauck when hit by rookie Cortland Finnegan.

Nickey ran upfield and shoved White in the back. White elbowed safety Vincent Fuller amid more pushing and shoving. Nickey threw at least one punch before a group of players were separated, and he walked off, took off his helmet and threw it on the ground.

That prompted an angry response from coach Jeff Fisher. Practice ended a few plays later, and Fisher called the team together on the field for a brief speech before letting them leave.

"It's hot out -- last day out here," Bulluck said. "We're just getting after it."

White, who dropped into the second round after questions about his weight and inability to run before the NFL draft because of a torn right hamstring, has been working behind Chris Brown and Travis Henry in the rotation at running back.

White walked by reporters as he left the practice saying: "No comment, no comment, no comment."

Nickey, a three-year veteran out of Ohio State, also declined to comment.

Well, it is good to see players showing a bit of intensity. LenDale might want to save it for the other teams next time, though.

Yea no doubt without even playing a down in the NFL yet. LenDale White is a football God. I'm so tired of hearing about how the Steelers passed on LenDale White. For some people they have to get over it. There is nothing you can do about so stop talking about it.

That's team chemistry (or lack thereof.) The Steelers have a different sort of environmant... that wouldn't have happened here, I don't think.

I'm not glad that we didn't pick him but something tells me this wouldn't have happened at Latrobe.

That being said...disgrace is not progress. I'm extremely (fill in the blank). He's a touchdown machine.

Holmes and LenDale must get a grip on reality...more so Holmes...please!

i heard he spit on the dude,

I think we are jumping to conclusions...I heard he had a mouthful of cheetos and was just trying to congradulate his team mate on making a nice play...:sofunny:

What should worry Titans fans more than this fight are the whispers that White has shown up to camp with a poor work ethic and a poor attitude.

But after being exposed to the USC media machine the last three years, I'm not all that surprised.

He spit on someone...I guess we are looking at the Sean Taylor of offense.

I am glad we didn't pick him up.Holmes is working with the team and getting better.White is spitting on and fighting with teammates.

I guess that clown will never learn. That was crazy how the guy was hitting White with his helmet. I guess if someone spit of me I would be pretty outraged as well. Nice job Lendale.
