Backus and White Fight at Lions Practice

Lions training camp continued with a fight breaking out between offensive tackle Jeff Backus and defensive end Dewayne White.  The two practice against each other regularly and the incident started yesterday morning when White shoved Backus under the chin while on the rush.  Backus then took White to the ground and started punching him.  Teammates and coaches jumped in to break things up.  White and Backus both wrote off the incident as just a part of training camp.  Head coach Rod Marinelli said he was not happy about the fight because it showed a lack of self control.
