Riley Cooper and Cary Williams got into a scuffle at practice that required several players including Michael Vick to step in and separate the two.

Williams had to be forcibly pulled away. The fiery cornerback then walked to a separate field and strolled up and down by himself.

Cooper looked visibly distraught and stayed out of one-on-one drills that involved receivers and defensive backs until DeSean Jackson came over to him. Jackson eventually walked over to Williams and had a conversation.

Cooper was embroiled in controversy in late July when video surfaced of him saying the n-word at a concert. Several players were upset by what he had said although many stood behind the fourth-year receiver. Cooper took a leave of absence to seek help.

Williams was one of the players that said he had problems with what Cooper said but that he was willing to welcome him back into the fold once they spoke. The sixth-year corner has gotten into several dust ups during his career including a brief scrum with a Patriots wide receiver when the Eagles had New England at the NovaCare Complex for two days of scrimmages.

The altercation began after the two were matched up in one-on-ones. Williams and Cooper got into each other's face and then a few players stepped in and tried to break it up. They were clenched together for several moments until cornerback Brandon Boykin was the first to step in.
