- Story Text: They may represent the same city, but Los Angeles' Rams and Chargers were anything but friendly when their joint-practice on Wednesday (August 9) descended into fisticuffs. Fighting broke out as Rams cornerback Trumaine Johnson reacted to a push by Chargers receiver Dontrelle Inman as Inman was thrown a pass from Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers. Video footage from the practice showed the all-out brawl that followed.
Rams Coach Sean McVay praised the players for 'regaining their poise and finding a way to get through this practice.'
Starting this fall, the Los Angeles area will have two National Football League teams in a potential boost to the region's leisure and tourism industry. The nation's second-largest city had no NFL team from 1994 until the St. Louis Rams moved and began playing there last year.
