Brooking fought teammate during practice?

1/12/2010

Cowboys linebacker Keith Brooking didn't deny he got into a fight during a practice this season with a secondary player.

Brooking was asked during an interview Tuesday on ESPN 103.3 FM's "Galloway and Company" if he got into a fight as reported by NBC's Cris Collinsworth.

"I will not clarify that," Brooking said. "My name's Bennett and I ain't in it."

Brooking did say he didn't fight with cornerback Orlando Scandrick.

"That's crazy," he said. "I don't know how we found that out."

Brooking has been one of the Cowboys' fiery leaders on and off the field and has earned respect from several of his teammates after just one season with the team.
