According to NFL.com, Breeland had an argument with coaches, took off his cleats and had a confrontation with multiple teammates as they were trying to calm things down. Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said earlier in the day that Breeland was going to hit the injury report before Monday’s game.

“I wanna appreciate the Vikings for the opportunity they game no hard feelings no love lost,” Breeland tweeted later Saturday.
