Ravens rookie wideout Tandon Doss had an interesting day before the Ravens took on the Washington Redskins.

The Ravens’ fourth-round draft pick said he broke up a fight that ended in someone being cut with a knife.

Baltimore police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi told The Baltimore Sun the fight occurred in the Five Guys restaurant at the Inner Harbor around 4:30 p.m. between two men, one whom police believe was angry about getting fired.

The Five Guys manager suffered a minor cut on his chin.

“I saw somebody start fighting and I broke it up. That’s all it was to me,” Doss said after the Ravens’ 34-31 victory.

The Ravens receiver said he wasn’t concerned about his own safety amid the dispute.

“It was two dudes on one; I was just trying to help the situation out, [so] I broke it up,” he said.

Doss remained humble when asked if he felt like a hero.

“I mean, I saw a guy on the ground bleeding, and I saw [another guy] on top of him hitting, so I just had to stop him,” said Doss.

Hours after the action, Doss helped the Ravens by catching two passes for 28 yards. He owns six receptions for 65 yards through three preseason games.
