Tempers can flare in the monotony of training camp and lining up against the same teammates without full contact, but Bucs coach Dirk Koetter said he isn't tolerating any kind of fighting during practice.

"You like the aggression, but you can't swing," Koetter said after Tuesday's practice. "You can't swing or you get kicked out."

Koetter said that third-year pro Caleb Benenoch, in line to the be the team's new starting right guard, "got kicked out of practice" on Sunday, the first day in full pads in training camp.

"We had a little fighting incident, so a couple guys got kicked out," Koetter said. "Caleb's a guy that's played for us and he's in a little competition right now, but everybody's in competition. He's doing fine."
