Many people wanted to throw down with Riley Cooper after video of the Eagles wideout using racial slurs at a June concert hit the internet earlier this summer, but very few believed a teammate would be one of them. Cary Williams and Cooper reportedly got into a scuffle at Eagles practice on Thursday according to Philadelphia media members. The cause of the scuffle is unknown and it was quickly broken up by teammates, including Michael Vick. Williams was one of several teammates who expressed concern about being able to accept the fourth-year WR as a teammate. Check out the tweets below from some folks on the scene.

Vick has to calm him down.— Phil Sheridan (@SheridanScribe) September 05, 2013 These things happen, but Cooper's history certainly raises questions. Unfortunate.— Phil Sheridan (@SheridanScribe) September 05, 2013 Michael Vick holds back Cary Williams as he tries to go after Riley Cooper @Eagles practice. #eagles #nfl http://t.co/VkKQ6iCUFb— David Maialetti (@davidmaialetti) September 05, 2013 Filed under: Headlines, NESN Staff, NFL, Philadelphia Eagles
