Joint practice ends after Redskins, Texans start brawling

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) The joint portion of the final practice involving the Washington Redskins and Houston Texans came to an end Saturday when a series of fights broke out.

The teams had just started working against each other when the first skirmish occurred. When more followed on subsequent plays, the head coaches decided to break the teams apart. Each team worked on its own field for the rest of the session.

Redskins defensive lineman Chris Baker said one of the fights started when a Houston offensive lineman tried to ''clean him off the pocket.'' Baker says when he removed his helmet and confronted the player, the player hit him and a brawl ensued.
