Dolphins cut defensive tackle Gabe Wright after altercation during practice

Dolphins cut defensive tackle Gabe Wright after altercation during practice

Veteran defensive lineman Gabe Wright was waived by the Dolphins on Tuesday, one day after he charged at and blindsided Kenyan Drake while the running back's helmet was off.

Drake, who didn't appear to get injured, according to ESPN, responded by throwing Wright's helmet to the sideline.

"Everyone is getting exhausted of hitting each other", Dolphins offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains told the Miami Herald.

The fight started after another Dolphins running back, Senorise Perry, was repeatedly tackled to the ground and his offensive teammates got fed up, leading to some pushing and shoving. "In camp, that's what happens in the National Football League about this time every year, every team".

New Study Suggests Vaping Is More Dangerous Than First Thought
They also suggested that people can still use it to help them give up on cigarettes because it was proven to have been successful. In order to arrive at the conclusion, researchers devised a mechanical device that mimicked vaping at the laboratory.

Defensive coordinator Matt Burke didn't directly address the fight with reporters Monday, but he said the energy during practice seemed "misplaced".

Wright was fighting to make the Dolphins' 52-man roster after spending the majority of the 2017 campaign on the practice squad.

He played in one game for the Dolphins last season, recording one solo tackle and defending a pass in a 22-16 loss to the Buffalo Bills on New Year's Eve.

He was originially a fourth-round selection by the Detroit Lions in the 2015 National Football League draft.
