Marrone Upset by Bills Lack of Practice Discipline

By  | 

PITTSFORD, N.Y. (AP) - Buffalo Bills coach Doug Marrone is he's fed up with too many fights and post-whistle shoving matches during practice.

So Marrone cleared the field in the middle of a team drill and ordered players run sprints Thursday after several players got into shoving matches. Marrone then directed his anger at defensive end Jerry Hughes on the sideline.

Looking directly at Hughes, Marrone used several profanities in telling the player to stop complaining. He also questioned whether Hughes still wanted to play for the team.

Marrone spent a few minutes meeting with Hughes following practice.

Hughes referred questions about what happened to Marrone, and added "the head coach took care of it."

Afterward, Marrone said his comments were directed at the team and not Hughes.
