Washington Commanders corner Danny Johnson was injured in a fight with Mark Andrews.
The Baltimore Ravens tight end body slammed during practice.
Since the start of joint practices across the NFL, it seems like there has constantly been fighting going on across the NFL.
Teams competing in these practices have been fighting.
Some teams have even had issues among themselves.
The worst of it this week seemingly came from the joint practices between the Washington Commanders and the Baltimore Ravens.
One scuffle between the two teams saw punches thrown.

While we hadn’t heard much about that incident since the clip of the body slam made its way around the internet, it turns out, there may have been some major repercussions for one participant in the fight.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, Johnson suffered a rotator cuff injury as a result of his scuffle with Andrews.

Johnson has been with the Commanders since they picked him up as an undrafted free agent back in 2018 and he has been a regular rotational player for the team over the last couple of years.
Johnson has played a little bit under half of the team’s snaps over each of the team’s last two seasons and even grabbed his first career interception last year.
This is unfortunately a risk that you run when you let players fight at camp with no threat of consequences.
Hopefully Johnson avoided any kind of a major injury as he works to maintain his role for the Commanders’ defense.
