Philadelphia Eagles’ Riley Cooper Gets into Fight with Teammate Cary Williams

It doesn’t seem things are back to normal for Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper. The player who uttered a racial slur on camera earlier in the summer, recently got into two brawls with his teammate cornerback Cary Williams on Thursday morning in practice.

The wide receiver made national headlines early in training camp when a video clip hit the web showing him using the N-word during a conflict with a black sercurity guard at a June concert. At the time it happened, Williams was one of several African-Americans on the team who spoke up about what Riley said on the video.

According to ESPN, the fight started when Williams was covering Cooper in a non-contact drill. The two locked up and threw fists until they were separated by cornerback Brandon Boykin.

Cooper reportedely walked away from the fight and Williams pursued him after dramatically throwing his helmet to the ground. Quarterback Michael Vick grabbed Williams to calm him down.
