Report: Cowboys' Joseph Randle, Dez Bryant argue over comments
Dallas Cowboys running back Joseph Randle and wide receiver Dez Bryant got into a "snit" at practice on Friday over comments Randle made on a jailhouse video, according to Clarence Hill of the Star-Telegram.
Randle was arrested for shoplifting earlier this month and was captured on the video talking about teammates who have had previous run-ins with the law.
Randle also said the following of wide receiver Dez Bryant: "Dez didn't miss no games for smacking his momma."
Brent was convicted of intoxication manslaughter in January for his role in a December 2012 car accident that killed teammate Jerry Brown. He was sentenced to 180 days of jail time and 10 years' probation. Brent was conditionally reinstated by the NFL in September and is eligible to play in Week 11.
Bryant's mom alleged that Bryant grabbed her and slapped her with a baseball cap in a July 2012 argument, but a misdemeanor family assault charge was later dismissed on the condition that Bryant undergo counseling.
At practice, Witten said the following to Randle, according to CBS Dallas/Fort Worth.
“Alright, don’t say another (expletive) word!” Witten yelled at Randle at the opening of the workout. “Alright? Don’t say nothin’ from here on out. Don’t talk about it.”
Randle apologized for the shoplifting incident, saying 48 hours after the crime that it was the "biggest mistake I’ve ever made in my life."
The Cowboys selected Randle in the second round of the 2013 draft. Over eight games this season, the 6-foot, 210-pound tailback has carried 21 times for 143 yards.
Dallas, which is 6-2 and in first place in the NFC East, hosts the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
