Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper and cornerback Cary Williams got in a fight on Thursday at Eagles training camp, according to Will Brinson of CBSSports.com. The two had to be seperated by teammates, including starting quarterback Michael Vick.

Cooper sparked a huge frenzy of attention after he was caught making racist remarks at a Kenny Chesney concert in late July. The Eagles decided not to remove him from the organization and many teammates, including Michael Vick, supported Cooper after the incident.

Whether the fight at Eagles camp was related to Cooper’s racist remarks was not completely clear, but Williams had previously said Cooper’s remarks were an “elephant in the room” according to Brinson.

Philadelphia will play their first game of the season on September 9th in Washington against the Redskins.
