Dallas Cowboys cornerback B.W. Webb will not face discipline from the league for tussling with a fan during the Cowboys and Raiders joint practice on Tuesday, the Ft. Worth Star-Telegram reports.
The incident started when Morris Claiborne made a form tackle on a Raiders receiver near the Oakland sideline, during what was supposed to be a non-full contact practice. A few Oakland players took exception to Claiborne’s tackle and a fight ensued. During the fight, a fan reached over the partition and swung a helmet at Webb.
Webb responded by throwing a punch back into the crowd.
Garrett said Wednesday that the team would discuss the matter in-house with Webb.
"Obviously, we’re not for it," Garrett said. "But you know, if you look at the sequence of what happened, Mo Claiborne did a great job of coming up. We talked about the tempo of the drill being thud, and thud is you square up the ball carrier, and you strike him. Sometimes when you strike him, the ball carrier goes down. They certainly took offense to that, and then it boiled over right over there by that fence. That’s just the nature of it. At some point, you have to, as a player, defend your teammate, get yourself in there and make sure he’s going to be OK. Always have your guy’s back. That’s an important part of building a football team. At the same time, poise in that situation is important. I felt we demonstrated both and you kind of move on."
