It's not believed any players were injured in either melee. These fights are relatively standard affair for joint practices. Players have been going head-to-head against teammates for a while, and there's likely a lot of pent-up aggression ready to be released.

What makes this more interesting is that both teams are jockeying for their fanbases in Los Angeles. If this practice is any indication, neither side is going to give up without a fight.
