ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Nobody got hurt Thursday in several skirmishes that broke out during team drills between Denver's record-shattering offense and Houston's swaggering defense.

Texans talkative safety D.J. Swearinger was once again in the middle of the biggest fracas. Tempers flared when running back Montee Ball was shoved after the whistle. Several players ended up on the ground in all the pushing and shoving that followed, including Denver receiver Emmanuel Sanders.

Texans coach Bill O'Brien took exception to the notion the joint practices were chippy, saying, "I'm from Boston, so when chippy was uses that was with the old big, bad Bruins in the '80s Chippy was a hockey term, not a football term. It was competitive. Two teams going at it."
