It's hot up at Eagles training camp up in Lehigh and intersquad scuffles are commonplace when guys are fighting for not only starting jobs but also roster spots.
The above photo features rookie lineman Danny Watkins going at it with Moise Fokou at this past Saturday's practice.
Reporters asked Watkins about the skirmish following practice but the rookie didn't want to make much of it.
"I'm not going to talk about it too, too much. What happens on the field stays on the field. It's good to see there's lots of energy, so that's good," Watkins said.

Dealing with injuries in their crease, the Los Angeles Kings called the Flyers to check in on the availability of bad goalie Steve Mason, according to Sportsnet's Elliotte Friedman.
Kings starter and otherwise really good goalie Jonathan Quick is out up to three months with a groin injury, while backup Jeff Zatkoff is currently on injured reserve with a groin injury too.
Before eventually brining in former Predators and Coyotes goaltender Anders Lindbach, Los Angeles called around the league to see if any teams might be able to help them find a replacement for Quick. Mason was one of the potential candidates, Friedman said, but Mason's $4.1 million cap hit couldn't fit into their cap situation. Plus, the Flyers don't have any cap flexibility, either.
Mason is 4-2 with a 2.77 goals-against average and .901 save percentage in six games this season.
Get this guy season tickets! (Just kidding, we don't endorse this kind of behavior and almost don't find it funny at all)
A man who if you were kind of drunk could almost look like Larry Bird's second cousin was ejected from the Wells Fargo Center on Wednesday night for showing a bit of negative emotion directed at Oklahoma City Thunder star Russell Westbrook.
