PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown and cornerback Ike Taylor say there’s no bad blood following a scuffle in practice on Sunday that forced general manager Kevin Colbert to play peacemaker.
Brown and Taylor got into it after Taylor broke up pass intended for Brown toward the end of practice. When the players got to their feet, punches were thrown. Taylor took a direct hit to his right eye, and the swelling was still visible on Tuesday.
Brown says he took Taylor out to breakfast on Monday — the team’s off day — and talked for over an hour to iron out any differences.
The fight marked the second time Brown and Taylor mixed it up during camp. Brown attributed the fights as just another part of training camp.
