Coaching staff suggest there will be no hangover for the team in their first game of the season.
Eagles coach Chip Kelly denied there will be a feeling of resentment between any players when Philadelphia steps out for their first game of the NFL season on Monday.
Kelly was referring to the fight that took place between Riley Cooper and Cary Williams during practice on Thursday where the pair had to be separated by teammates.
Suggestions have been made that the pair clashed due to the now viral video where Cooper spouts a racial slur.
However, Kelly quickly quashed those claims saying it was a misunderstanding in the heat of practice.
“Do I think that was connected to what happened yesterday?” Kelly said. “No, not at all. No, I don’t.”
Quarterback Michael Vick was forced to step in between the players to separate them and from taking the fight any further.
Vick also declined to go into detail about what was said, adding the team has bigger concerns in the form of the Washington Redskins in their first game of the season.
“What happened in that 10 minutes didn’t affect us for the rest of the practice,” Vick said.
“We all have brotherhood that extends far beyond football. It’s something that happened. We cleared it up. I’d rather not even talk about it.”
Kelly said he was not concerned with the pattern of behaviour from Williams, which also shows multiple fines and an incident of shoving a referee in the Super Bowl on his rap-sheet.
“That was just an agreement I had with (New England coach) coach Belichick that we weren’t going to put up with it when the two teams were practicing because of what we had to get accomplished,” Kelly said.
“We’ve talked about it and hopefully (Williams) understands the ramifications. It’s a team game. Our whole deal that we talk about all the time is that you have to play with emotion and not let emotion play with you.”
