FOXBORO, Mass. — The New England Patriots won’t suit up in full pads until Saturday, but Friday’s training camp practice still got a little chippy.
Cornerback Cyrus Jones and wide receiver Chris Hogan were involved in a mini dust-up at the Patriots’ second training camp practice of the summer, with Jones seemingly taking exception to Hogan making a catch on one of the back fields at Gillette Stadium.
Jones downplayed the incident after practice.
“It’s football,” Jones said. “It’s an emotional game.”
Don’t expect any bad blood between the teammates moving forward.
“You’ve got to (forget about it and move on). You can’t dwell on stuff like that,” Jones added. “It’s part of the game.”
Jones, a second-round draft pick in 2016, is entering his second season with the Patriots after a disappointing rookie campaign. Hogan, who’s also entering his second season with the Pats, spent his first four years with the Buffalo Bills before joining New England.
