It's not really training camp until a fight breaks out.

That's what happened Sunday at Philadelphia Eagles camp during a 2 hour and 40 minute day at the practice field.

In a Philadelphia Daily News report, linebacker Ryan Rau punched offensive guard Danny Watkins in the back of the head while the guard was on the ground.

That led to the entire offense taking Watkins' back and created a "large pile."

"I don't care who it is; I'm not going to let anybody push me around," Rau said.
