Video posted to Twitter shows Donald holding a Bengals helmet and swinging it before being knocked to the ground and restrained. Several punches appear to be thrown between the two teams during the fight.

Bengals head coach Zac Taylor said the reason practice was called early was because things “got a bit of a fight” in the last period, and the two teams decided that it was not necessary to play the latest games.

“We had two really good days of work, so was it worth getting a few extra games? No,” Taylor said.

Donald, 31, a three-time NFL Defensive Player of the Year, is unlikely to be suspended because teams, not the NFL, are responsible for overseeing player conduct in practice, including workouts spouses.

“I don’t know exactly what caused it,” Rams head coach Sean McVay said after practice. “I think in some cases it’s teams defending themselves.

“Fortunately, from what I understand, no one was hurt, and we’ll move on. We’re not going to do more than what it is. We won’t be watching finger pointing .”

Donald was not made available to reporters after practice. CNN has reached out to both teams for comment.
