BALTIMORE — Ravens safety Earl Thomas III missed practice Saturday morning, one day after he was sent home from the team facility following a training camp scuffle with fellow safety Chuck Clark, a source confirmed.
Ravens coach John Harbaugh was not available to comment. Assistant head coach David Culley said it was an “organizational decision” that Harbaugh would discuss later.
Clark, who practiced Saturday, had confronted Thomas on the sideline late in Friday’s practice, reportedly over a coverage breakdown. Thomas put up his fists, and the players had to be separated by teammates. After Clark continued arguing with Thomas a couple of minutes later, he left the practice fields and returned to the team facility.
About 90 minutes after the conclusion of Saturday’s practice, Thomas posted the video on Instagram of what he said sparked the confrontation with Clark, calling the play a “mental error on my part.” After the long completion, Clark can be seen throwing his helmet to the ground.
