Doss breaks up knife fight before preseason game

T. Doss broke up a knife fight at a local Baltimore restaurant (Getty).Posted by Josh Katzowitz

A few hours before the Ravens played the Redskins in their preseason game last Thursday, Baltimore rookie receiver Tandon Doss was hanging out at Five Guys restaurant, presumably filling his intestines with greasy burgers and fries.

But then, Doss saw two men fighting another man, and apparently, he felt like he had to get involved. Even if it was gameday, and even if he didn’t know why the men were fighting each other.

"I mean, it was two dudes on one," Doss told the Baltimore Sun. "I was trying to help the situation out. I broke it up. ... I saw the guy on the ground bleeding, and I saw a guy on top hitting him. So I stopped it."

Doss officially broke the news on his Twitter account, and when someone asked him why he had behaved like a good Samaritan on game day, he responded, “wat day it is I'm not gonna sit there and let someone get jumped. [I don't know] where ur from but we don't do that in Indy."

Doss, though, is lucky. According to police, the two attackers were former employees of the Five Guys, and one of them had a knife and tried to injure the restaurant’s manager. The manager is OK, and the two suspected attackers are being sought.

But we’ll leave you with what Doss wrote in his own words after he played hero for the day that sums up this whole affair. “Jus had to break up a fight at five guys. Baltimore is too ratchet!!!"

His college education may not be evident in his Twitter account, but then it *is* Twitter.

Nevertheless this man displayed not only tremendous courage but also, as some other poster said, admirable morals. These days most people would have just sat back and watched that 2-on-1 fight without compunction...and then told the 2 attackers how to escape as well.

Don't rag on this guy about his vocabulary when he's shown more courage than *you* ever will.

A young NFL player with morals?  And a receiver at that!  Wow, good for you Mr. Tandon Doss, good for you.  Guys like Talib and Britt could learn a thing or two from you.  Good to see some young guys were still brought up right.  And I've been to Baltimore it is "ratchet!".

Well since Doss was the hero and no one ended up dead, he obviously didn't learn his knife fighting skills from teammate Ray Lewis!
I kid I kid.

Who is Goss? Was he there with Doss?

Good for you Rook!  Don't know the details, but it sounds like he probably saved this guy's life.

I don't care how u type on your twitter acct, that was a bold move and after all the stupid crap players did during the lockout (and every offseason) this is a refreshing story.

Kudos on being at Five Guys, love that place!

I jus b getin burgers wen dey start figtin. dont no were u from but we dnt play dat in Indy. All these paid athletes want to be hood so badly. Grow up, write like you are not an ignorant hood rat, and have some self respect. The way he talks he must have had experience breaking up knife fights between mommy and daddy. I'm sure not, but thats how he wants to represent himself. HEY ROOKIE, GO WATCH SOME MORE MUSIC VIDEOS

Brave move by Doss. Probably did something that I wouldnt of done. Dont know if that makes him more brave then stupid or the other way around. I always say if it doesnt involve me or a family member or good friend I leave it alone. Just a good thing for Doss and the Ravens that it didnt go the wrong way for him.
