You can count on two things in NFL pre-season training camps, big names getting injured and fights breaking out.
The latter seems to have grabbed the headlines more in this pre-season, ahead of the 2015 campaign, with several teammates breaking out in to brawls as the tensions rise.
The Dallas Cowboys and Saint Louis Rams got in to one hell of a fight at their joint practice yesterday. In the middle of it, Cowboys star wide receiver Dez Bryant got punched square in the face.

According to a report from The Big Lead, Bryant was apparently talking to team owner Jerry Jones as the fighitng broke out. He ran toward the fight, without a helmet, and wound up with a punch in the face for his troubles from a St. Louis player.
Jason McIntyre thankfully tweeted out a video of Bryant getting his nose busted in.
Bryant, who apparently has seen the social-media reaction to taking knuckles to the nose, sounded off on Twitter.
“I wish I would have cheap shot his ass then all of y’all would have seen the difference,” Bryant said. “You can’t even put that sh-t on world star lol.”
Bryant is right, it was a cheap shot on a player that wasn't wearing a helmet. Pretty poor showing from whoever that Rams player is that threw his fist.
