DeAndre Hopkins headed back to the locker room early at a joint Texans-49ers practice after he got in a fight.

The teams were working on one-on-one drills when the Texans receiver got involved in a shoving match with Niners safety Jimmy Ward.

Hopkins’ helmet seemed to be smacked off by Ward, which riled him up and resulted in a shoving match. The pushing escalated to punches before it was broken up.

Hopkins was then ejected from the practice.

The Texans and 49ers will face off in their second preseason game this Saturday.
