Jimmie Ward and DeAndre Hopkins trade punches during 49ers-Texans joint practice

Tempers are already flaring during the first joint practice between the 49ers and Texans in Houston on Wednesday morning.

49ers cornerback Jimmie Ward and Texans wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins came to blows after Ward’s physical coverage during a drill led to Hopkins’ helmet being knocked off. Ward then appeared to get an extra shot in before the two began trading punches, and were soon rolling to the ground as players and coaches from both teams tried to break up the skirmish.

The two teams will practice again tomorrow before their preseason matchup on Saturday evening
