Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper and cornerback Cary Williams got into a heated scuffle at Thursday's practice, and a player close to the incident indicated to The Philadelphia Inquirer that it was directly related to a video that surfaced five weeks ago of Cooper using a racial slur at a June concert.
According to the player, who did not want to be named, Williams used the same slur on Thursday that Cooper used in the video. The player quoted Williams as saying, "I'm not a n- you [mess] with."
In June, Cooper attended a Kenny Chesney concert at Lincoln Financial Field and, by his own admission, got into an altercation with a security guard. During the argument, Cooper said he would "fight every n- here."
