The New York Giants got a little feisty in their evening practice Saturday and it may have cost them a player.
In an evening filled with scuffles, free agent offensive lineman Cliff Scott appeared to hurt his left knee when defensive tackle Dave Tollefson threw offensive tackle William Beatty into Scott's knee.
Coach Tom Coughlin immediately stopped practice and screamed at the team in the wake of the injury and the scuffles that preceded the injury.
Scott was taken off the field on a golf cart. The extent of his injury was not immediately available.
The feistiness started after tight end Mike Matthews made a hard hit on linebacker Bryan Kehl on a running play.
On the next play, fullback Madison Hedgecock threw a downfield block on Kehl that knocked him off his feet. Several defenders said something to Hedgecock on his way back to the huddle.
Several plays later, Hedgecock and Kehl wrestled with each other after a play, and then they did it again several plays later.
Scott, who spent most of last season on the Giants' practice squad, was hurt shortly after that.
