Aaron Donald brandishes helmet in Rams-Bengals brawl

CINCINNATI — A brawl between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Los Angeles Rams ended Thursday’s joint practice session early, with Rams’ Aaron Donald repeatedly swinging his helmet at Bengals players before being thrown to the ground.

The player threw his fist and helmet during the brawl leading up to the final free-for-all with Donald, the defensive lineman who was hurled to the ground after shaking his helmet.

Bengals coach Zach Taylor downplayed the event, stating:

Midway through the second day of joint practice, things took a turn when Cincinnati offensive lineman Rael Collins blocked Donald as quarterback Joe Burrow completed a long pass to Jamar Chase. It became unstable. On the next play, Collins got into a brawl with linebacker Leonard Floyd, ripping off the defender’s helmet and throwing it.

Collins was involved in another brawl before the final sideline clearing battle.

The Bengals and Rams, who played in the Super Bowl in February, will face off in the preseason finale on Saturday night in Cincinnati.

In 2019, the Browns’ Myles Garrett was suspended for six games after using a helmet to smash Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head during a regular-season game.
