New Orleans Saints rookie Trevor Penning’s day ended early Wednesday.
The 23-year-old offensive tackle was kicked out of training camp practice after getting into a fight with a teammate, the third post-whistle fight he’s gotten into in as many days.
“We don’t have time for that,” coach Dennis Allen said after practice. “I sent two guys out today and we have to do our job. We have to learn as a team how to compete and how to play and how to practice and push ourselves to the limit and yet not take control.” the edge.”
Penning was involved in a fight with defensive lineman Malcolm Roach, according to Pro Football Talk.

Allen confirmed that two were sent to the locker room. The first-year head coach said he had a conversation with the entire team about taking it too far and will talk “with those two players sometime between now and next practice.”
The Saints drafted Penning from northern Iowa with the 19th overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft.
Although Allen previously said he loves Penning’s “warrior,” he said the rookie “went a little overboard today.”
“We’re in the third straight day of practice,” Allen said. “People start to get a little tired and things get a little bumpy. It’s not unusual for something like this to happen during training camp. It’s certainly something we don’t want to happen. It will be addressed and I’ll move on.”
