BATON ROUGE - LSU says an apparent Tuesday brawl involving star running back Leonard Fournette and another player is an instance of locker room antics taken out of context.

Video of the "fight" between Fournette and offensive lineman Garrett Brumfield surfaced on social media on Wednesday afternoon and was quickly picked up by TMZ Sports. LSU team spokesman Michael Bonnette says what is captured in the video is merely an "intense game of slap boxing" or horseplay that was captured out of context.

After the video ends, Bonnette notes that the players "hugged it out" and went about their days with no animosity toward each other.

No injuries were reported in connection with the incident, according to Bonnette.

Fournette has yet to make a media appearance since LSU fall camp started this week.
