ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - The temperatures at Dove Valley were warm and the tempers hot.
Pro Bowler Elvis Dumervil jawed with third-year receiver Matthew Willis during a passing drill Tuesday after the linebacker took exception to Willis blasting cornerback Alphonso Smith following a fumble recovery.
No hard feelings, though, and no apologies were necessary. This is simply all part of the feistiness and grind of camp.
Dumervil says, "We're all family, but on the defensive side we're more close," adding that "When we're out there on game days, we're family. But on the practice field, they're the other guys."
By the time Dumervil walked off the field after practice, the incident was all but forgotten. Cooler heads prevailed.
