I guess William Green and Joey Porter got into a fight in the pregame, and they are not going to play today.

Here's the story from CBS sportsline -

CLEVELAND -- Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker Joey Porter and Cleveland Browns running back William Green were ejected before Sunday's game for fighting during warmups.

About 45 minutes before the opening kickoff, the players exchanged several punches near midfield as the teams were going through drills. TV replays appeared to show Green spitting at Porter, whose back was to the camera.

Green's lower lip was bloodied from the confrontation.

Browns fullback Terrelle Smith also threw a few punches but was not ejected.

Both Green and Porter had their helmets off when they began swinging wildly at each other before they were broken up. It was unclear what triggered the fight.

Already the NFL's most heated rivalry, the game was spiced up earlier this week by Browns defensive tackle Gerard Warren, who threatened to go after the head of Steelers rookie quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

Warren was warned by the league on Friday to watch himself or face a suspension.

Green is the Browns' leading rusher with 441 yards. He had 27 yards on three carries in Cleveland's loss to Pittsburgh on Oct. 10.

James Harrison started in Porter's spot at right outside linebacker.

Nah, they were from the other team, but it's still quite stupid.
