Tempers Flare At Pats/Bears Joint Practice [VIDEO]
For the second consecutive day the New England Patriots and the Chicago Bears got into a scuffle at the joint practice between teams. Another Pats player was ejected as Bryan Stork was sent off the field, this time around for taking a swing at Bears’ linebacker John Timu. Malcolm Butler was ejected on Monday for getting into an altercation with another Chicago player. Tom Brady wet 4-8 in 11 on 11 drills and Week One starter Jimmy Garoppolo went 4 for 9 in the drills.

One of the marquee moments of the practice for New England was when wide receiver Julian Edelman beat former playoff hero Tracy Porter so badly on a route that the latter gave up on the play halfway through.
Both teams will have one last joint practice on Wednesday in shells and shorts before the second pre-season game of the year gets underway on Thursday night.
You can hear the match-up with the Bears coming up on Thursday with the pre-game coverage beginning at 5 p.m.
