Defensive lineman Ra'Shede Hagemen, the Falcons' second round pick, reportedly suffered a hairline fracture in his wrist Sunday while engaged in a fight at practice, according to

During pass rushing drills, Hagemen apparently threw a punch at center Joe Hawley. Immediately afterward, he received medical attention.

"I think we're all talking about competing and fighting for jobs, but we're not talking about fighting each other," coach Mike Smith said. "We've got to understand that. It's not what we're about. We're about competing and going out and trying to win a job. But we're not about fighting one another. That's something that happens when it gets hot. Today, it was hot, or hotter than what we've been used to practicing. But we've got to definitely get that fixed."

So, how long could Hagemen miss?

The Falcons on Sunday also lost second-year offensive lineman Terren Jones, who was carted off the field after suffering a reported head injury and who was taken to the hospital by ambulance.
