Fight Breaks Out At Eagles Practice Involving Wide Receiver Taped Using Racial Slur
The elephant in the room has now been addressed.
A fight broke out Thursday morning during the Philadelphia Eagles practice between wide receiver Riley Cooper and cornerback Cary Williams. According to reports, the two began jawing at each other during a non-contact one-on-one drill, which quickly led to a shoving match.
As the shoving began to escalate, teammates had to step in to separate the two players, but Williams continued to pursue Cooper and had to be forcibly pulled away from the field.
Back in July, Cooper made headlines when he was caught on camera using the n-word at a Kenny Chesney concert. Following that incident, Williams, who has lost his temper on the field before, made the following remarks:
"The issue to me is that there is an elephant in the room that needs to be addressed. It's an unfortunate situation for the team to go through this... We're having a tough time. We're at a crossroads."
