(The Sports Xchange) - New York Jets first-round safety Calvin Pryor sustained a concussion in practice, coach Rex Ryan confirmed on Sunday.

Ryan said the rookie was injured in a special teams drill on Saturday while blocking on a kick return.

"Pryor now will go through the protocol, so it is a concussion," Ryan said, according to the New York Daily News. "Apparently it was on a kick when we were doing a kick return drill and he was blocking and the returner kind of got knocked into him and kind of just hit him right. It's one of those things. One of those heavyweights hit you in the chin, the lights go out I guess."

Running back LeSean McCoy and linebacker Trent Cole got into a fight during practice at Philadelphia Eagles training camp.

Linebacker Brandon Graham said Cole nudged at McCoy during a play midway through practice and the two went at it.

"Next thing you know, they're on the ground scuffling," Graham said. "It was just a friendly thing, you know. They're always competing and talking stuff to each other. It was just one of those things."

McCoy said the incident was not a big deal. It was broken up quickly.
