Video: Fight Nearly Breaks Out At Midfield Before NFL Game

Eric Reid is held back by teammates.

The fireworks started early today in Philly. There was nearly an altercation during the coin toss.

Going off reports from those covering the game, it seems like Carolina Panthers safety Eric Reid was angry about something during pregame. It carried over to the coin toss.

Reid had to be separated from the Eagles players, most notably Malcolm Jenkins.

We'll have to wait until after the game to get more clarification about what happened. However, there's a chance this might have stemmed from some off-field beef.

Reid and Jenkins have butted heads over the NFL Players Coalition and differing opinions on protesting/dealing with injustice.

It should be fun getting more info on this post-game.
