Earlier today, TMZ Sports reported that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and former linebacker Aldon Smith -- who was released by the team today after being arrested last night -- had been involved in a fight during the team's practice on Tuesday. TMZ claimed that it got so heated that "players had to pull them apart."

Beat writer Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, who covers the team religiously, says that there have been no on-the-field altercations that he has seen.


TMZ had claimed that the fight had been over over Smith's ex-girlfriend.

However, Matt Maiocco did remember that the media was not allowed at the team's walk-through. So if anything did happen, it would have been there.


Then the rumors got really interesting...


Take it for what it is worth.
