Frank Clark ejected from Seahawks practice after fight with Germain Ifedi

The Seahawks' practice got heated Thursday when one player was ejected and another was hurt.

Defensive end Frank Clark and right tackle Germain Ifedi exchanged some angry words during a drill, which led to Clark punching Ifedi.

The hit led to a brief brawl between some of the teammates before coach Pete Carroll managed to calm everything down.

Ifedi was not wearing a helmet when Clark punched him in the face and needed to be tended to by trainers. Clark was taken to the locker room by an assistant coach, and eventually Ifedi followed.

"I'm disappointed we had a couple guys get after it today," Carroll said, via ESPN. "There is no room for fighting in football. It is not part of this game, not supposed to be part of this game. And we frown upon that very heavily, so real disappointed that that happened today. We have to learn and get better and be right."

Before Clark and Ifedi's fight, offensive lineman Will Pericak and defensive tackle Rodney Coe also got into a scuffle.

"It's not OK, and it shouldn't be part of it," Carroll said. "You can't do it in a game. You get ejected — just what you saw happened. Somebody can get hurt, which you saw happen. So we've taken a big stance against it and are really disappointed that it happened on Day 4 here."

As for in Ifedi is seriously injured, Carroll said he was all right, but remained tight-lipped on any details.
