New York Giants offensive line coach Bobby Johnson expressed regret Tuesday for pushing linebacker Cam Brown during a brawl at practice Monday.

According to reports from Giants camp in East Rutherford, N.J., Johnson entered a fracas at Monday's practice to push Brown off center Jon Feliciano as he tried to drag Feliciano out of a melee. It triggered Feliciano into throwing a punch toward Brown.

"The incident (Monday), I take full responsibility," Johnson said Tuesday. "I'm remorseful. It can't happen. It won't happen again."

Johnson is in his first season as the Giants' offensive line coach. He spent the past three seasons in the same role with the Buffalo Bills and followed Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to New York when Daboll accepted the Giants' head coaching position.

Brown is entering his third season in the NFL, all with the Giants. New York selected him in the sixth round of the 2020 draft. He has 21 tackles and a forced fumble across 27 career games. Feliciano, 30, has seven seasons of NFL experience, playing 34 games (31 starts) with the Bills over the past three seasons.
