VIDEOS: Jets Coach Hospitalized After Getting Smacked During Jets-Bucs Fight

With training camp well underway, the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers got together for a joint practice.

As is usually the case, competitive fire between the two sides boiled over and many scuffles broke out during the session.

According to reports, the practice was marred by an astonishing “six or seven” scuffles, leaving fans riled up over the intensity of the clashes.

The aggression didn’t come without its consequences, however.

New York Jets assistant coach Tony Oden found himself caught in the crossfire and collapsed on the sideline after being inadvertently struck during a skirmish.

Oden was swiftly attended to by medical staff and transported from the field on a cart.

Thankfully, Jets Head Coach Robert Saleh later confirmed that Oden’s condition was stable and he’s expected to be perfectly fine. 


The tension-fueled joint practice featured many scuffles, which should lead to an interesting preseason matchup when the teams face off on Saturday.

The Jets have been the talk of the offseason after acquiring four-time NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers in a blockbuster trade with the Green Bay Packers.

Meanwhile, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are adjusting to the post-Tom Brady era.

With the legendary quarterback having retired (again), the Bucs are determined to prove that they can still compete at a high level, despite the absence of Brady.

Baker Mayfield is expected to be Tampa Bay’s starting quarterback when they kick off the season. Needless to say, he has pretty big shoes to fill. 

How do you think both teams will do this season?

Does Rodgers have a fifth MVP left in him?
