PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Riley Cooper, who left the Philadelphia Eagles for three days in training camp after a video of him making a racial slur surfaced on the Internet, got into a scuffle with Cary Williams at practice Thursday.

Williams was covering Cooper, broke up a pass from Michael Vick and both players went to the ground. Cooper got up and shoved Williams first. Williams responded with a couple punches and had to be forcibly restrained by teammates, including Vick.

Cooper walked away after Brandon Boykin stepped in to separate the players. Williams then took his helmet off, screamed at Cooper and started walking toward him before Vick stepped in and grabbed the fiery cornerback by his jersey. Williams yelled at Vick, and an assistant coach led the quarterback away. DeSean Jackson eventually calmed Williams, who is no stranger to fights.
