Jon Harrison and Kelcy Quarles kicked out of Indianapolis Colts practice for fighting

Published 1 Comments

The Indianapolis Colts have had an incredible off-season ahead of the new NFL year.

The Colts have become genuine Super Bowl contenders and favorites for the crown after managing to add wide receiver Andre Johnson and running back Frank Gore to what was an already explosive offense.

But it seems like the franchise for which everything is going right have some problems, with Chuck Pagano unhappy with infighting during practice.

According to a report from Stephen Holder of the Indy Star, the past two days at Colts camp have produced various scuffles between players and the head coach Pagano finally snapped, kicking two players out of practice.

Center Jon Harrison and defensive tackle Kelcy Quarles got into it after a play and started fighting before they could be broken up and Pagano decided enough was enough and removed them completely from practice.

"If that happens in a game, you're gone, right?" Pagano said after the session. "They throw you out. That's what happens. They're not available to play anymore. Hopefully we get the message and we compete at a high level but don't go over the line with it."

That was the second fight in two days, with Saturday's practice featuring a fight between defensive tackle Art Jones and guard Lance Louis, who thankfully escaped the wrath of Chuck.

However, Pagano sent out a stern warning to the rest of his players. They've been warned.

""We can't tolerate it," Pagano said. "We're not going to tolerate it. If it happens in a game, you're done."
