This punch won't be so costly for LeGarrette Blount.

The rookie running back capped off a feisty night practice for the Tennessee Titans with a short punch to the helmet of defensive end Erik Bakhtiari a few moments after having his helmet ripped off.

Blount had just returned to the Titans on Wednesday night after being excused since Sunday for personal reasons. He was carrying the ball in a drill near the goal line when his helmet came off, and he kept his feet moving toward the end zone.

The play ended with some pushing and shoving, then Blount threw a right into Bakhtiari's facemask.

Blount was suspended for most of last season with Oregon after he decked a Boise State player after a game.
