It's been more than a month now since a video of Riley Cooper using the N-word at a Kenny Chesney concert hit the Internet. And surprisingly, Cooper has been able to keep a really low profile throughout Eagles training camp, despite all of the outrage that surrounded him and Philadelphia as a whole following the release of the video. But Cooper's name is back in the news now following a fight that took place between him and his Eagles teammate Cary Williams during practice this morning.
There's been no word yet as to why the fight took place between Cooper and Williams. So we're not going to jump to any conclusions and assume that it had anything to do with Cooper's use of the N-word earlier this summer. But multiple sources have reported that the fight was broken up by Michael Vick, who was very supportive of Cooper in the aftermath of the racist video being released. Cooper was also said to be "visibly distraught" after the incident, according to Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Jeff McLane, which leads us to believe that this was more than just your average training camp fight. But we'll just have to wait to see what Cooper and Williams have to say about it later.
There is now video of the Cooper/Williams fight. Watch it here, courtesy of Comcast SportsNet Philadelphia:
