The fight took place about thirty minutes into the practice and their teammates had to break it up. Just moments before the fight took place, Cooper was being covered by Williams and then the two were on the ground.
Judging from the video (CLICK HERE) on CSNPhilly.com, Brandon Boykin was one of the first players to break up the fight. As Cooper walked away, Williams kept running his mouth, apparently using the same racial slur Cooper had used, and Michael Vick restrained Williams.
A Philly.com report by Jeff McLane says that Williams starting running his mouth at Vick and Vick didn't take it too well. He was mad enough that Vick had to be restrained. The CSNPhilly video of the fight shows this.
Cooper was in the media for the wrong reasons during training camp as a video came out of him using a racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert in Philadelphia back in June. Cooper said after practice that the fight didn't have anything to do with that. However, the fact that Williams used the same slur while basically saying "you don't want to mess with me," to put it in G-rated terms, shows that the incident was related.
Both Vick and DeSean Jackson stressed the fact that fighting isn't going to solve anything and isn't going to win them the game on Monday.
Williams doesn't have a clean record either. He has had incidents with Jackson last season, shoved a referee, was thrown out of the Eagles-Patriots practice during training camp for a scuffle with a Patriots receiver, and he also got into it with Carolina Panthers receiver Steve Smith during the preseason game.
