Dolphins WR Landry, RB James had altercation over ‘flicked ear’

Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry and running back LaMike James had an altercation in the team meeting room last week, FOX Sports NFL insider Mike Garafolo reported Sunday.

According to Garafolo, it began when Landry flicked James’s ear on the way into a team meeting. The two, who were competing for kick return duties, jawed at one another until things became physical.

There was some shoving and pushing, according to Garafolo, but  teammates and coaches broke up the fight quickly.

Landry and James, both active Sunday for the Dolphins’ trip to Washington, apologized and vowed to be better teammates.

In August, New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith suffered a broken jaw after getting punched by then-teammate IK Enemkpali over a dispute. Smith is out 6-10 weeks.
