WCPO reported that things got heated during 11-on-11 drills. Bengals offensive lineman La’el Collins was seen throwing a helmet and minutes later, a bigger fight broke out.

A video shared to social media showed Rams Pro Bowl defensive tackle Aaron Donald swinging at least one Bengals helmet.

“Emotions run high,” Taylor said. “We’ve been working together for two days now and that’s just some really competitive guys getting into it a little bit.”

The teams, who faced off in Super Bowl LVI, will play each other in their final preseason game on Aug. 27 at 6 p.m.
