If two guys were going to start throwing down at practice, smart money would have picked Tuesday's two culprits: Marc Colombo and Jay Ratliff.
However, coach Wade Phillips said he had another player pegged to be the first instigator of training camp.
"I thought [Keith] Brooking really because I’ve been around Keith and he normally is the guy in the first fight," Phillips said. "That’s why I was glad he wasn’t."
As for best training-camp fights, Phillips didn't have to think too hard about it.
"When I was with Buddy Ryan because he encouraged them, although nobody was fighting Reggie White or anybody. I think it was more when you're working with another team. We went to Detroit with Buddy Ryan with the Eagles and we went up to Detroit and worked out with them. It was pretty much a fight. It wasn't much workout. Special teams, they had them blocking punts. We were supposed to be working together and they were blocking punts. It seemed like every drill was a fight. We didn't get much out of it."
