Dave Campo and Terence Newman appear to be OK.

The two were laughing during the stretching portion of practice on Tuesday. Before practice, Newman said he has no problem with Campo and the two should become the co-feature of a big fight.

But on Sunday there was a problem with Newman and Campo. The two had to be separated after Campo grabbed Newman when coming off the field in the first quarter of the Cowboys-Redskins game.

Newman took offense to that and some other things Campo said, but that’s just part of what happens when guys are emotional.

Jimmy Johnson has coached with Campo in the pros, the Cowboys and in College, University of Miami, and he’s seen his share of sideline disagreements.

“I’m sure there were words [in the past], I don’t recall many of them,” Johnson said. “But I got a kick out of it the other day, watching my old coach, Camps, back from my Miami days and Cowboys days. He’s still feisty even at 62.”

Johnson and Campo shared a laugh before practice on Tuesday.
