Two relatively new Patriots were ejected from the team’s Saturday practice for fighting. On a humid day in Foxboro, Pats rookie defensive tackle Malcom Brown and newly acquired guard Ryan Groy reportedly exchanged blows following a play from scrimmage.


“[Fighting] is not tolerated here,” Pats safety Duron Harmon told “We know that. It’s something we try to refrain from doing.”


Groy, in his second year in the NFL, was traded from the Bears to New England earlier this month in exchange for linebacker Matthew Wells.
