Seahawks' Clark ejected for punching teammate

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

Seattle Seahawks defensive end Frank Clark was ejected from the team's practice on Thursday after punching offensive lineman Germain Ifedi. "If players fight in a camp practice, coaches often get upset but write it off as a rite of summer".

Training camp fights aren't uncommon, but that doesn't make them a good idea. Clark reportedly decked Ifedi in the jaw and forced him to miss the rest of practice. Clark was taken to the locker room by an assistant coach, and eventually Ifedi followed. It started with Rodney Coe chucking Will Pericak over a water cooler and it ended with Clark throwing a flying punch at a helmetless Ifedi. "There's no room for fighting in football". Carroll said he was "disappointed" with Clark's actions and confirmed that Ifedi was forced to leave practice with an injury. There isn't any video footage of the fight, but according to writers who were on the scene, Clark hit Ifedi with a fairly devastating punch. "That's not part of this game, not supposed to be part of this game".

But if Clark isn't on the field Friday, that will speak to how serious the Seahawks believe his punch was. "We frown upon that very heavily, so we're real disappointed that happened today". "There's nothing we can do about it right now but take time to assess and figure out what this all means". You can't do it in the game; you get ejected, which is just what you saw happen. You can't see much. I think you have to find that line.


"I don't know, it depends on the moment, so I don't really know", Bennett said. Sometimes we go a little overboard. I think we may have crossed that line today. "Sometimes you in life you don't want to be vulnerable because it doesn't show that you're a man, but in this case, it's important to be vulnerable and let him know you made a mistake and you'll never cross that line again".

"I know fighting, to the point where you're hurting each other, that's the line I think we draw, " he said.

"Yeah, you have to set that tone", Bennett explained.
