Check below for updates from the second joint practice between the Patriots and Lions in Detroit. As the tweets rolled in from Patriots beat reporters in attendance, we relayed them to you all in one place.

Monday’s session featured more big plays from the Pats’ rookie receivers. The intensity ramped up on Tuesday, to the point that it actually led to some scuffles.

Read below for a full recap of tweets from camp…

Live Updates

— Practice has ended and the Patriots are doing their customary post-practice hill runs. Brady went 12-for-21 with an interception in competitive team drills, per Jeff Howe. He did, however, hit Braxton Berrios and Phillip Dorsett for touchdowns in competitive periods.

— Harry returned to practice after spending some time working on his leg on the sideline with trainer Jim Whalen. He went back in and did some blocking drills, and also got testy with a fellow rookie, Lions CB Amani Oruwariye.

Fight fight fight! Patriots OL James Ferentz and Lions DT P.J. Johnson (not Kevin Strong, as was reported) apparently weren’t thrilled with each other and it caused a brief fracas. This stuff tends to happen in these joint practices.

— Harry appears to be shaken up, according to multiple reports. He’s working with a trainer after limping off the field. Multiple reports indicate a right hamstring issue.

— Apparently, Harry made yet another highlight reel catch. This can’t be stressed enough: Harry’s talent is undeniable. His goal is to understand the offense and earn Brady’s trust as quickly as possible. But he will definitely make some circus catches as a rookie.

— N’Keal Harry has made his daily circus catch. Reports say he leaped in the air and snagged the ball with one hand on a throw from Jarrett Stidham.

— Sounds like Chase Winovich wants to put on a show for his family and the Michigan fans in attendance.

— Patrick Chung update: The safety arrived late to practice in a red non-contact jersey.

— The Patriots’ first team-offense in an early walkthrough includes Jakobi Meyers and Phillip Dorsett at wide receiver, Sony Michel at running back, Matt LaCosse at tight end, and Dan Skipper at left tackle.
