The Dallas Cowboys training camp practice with the St. Louis Rams was canceled Tuesday after a violent brawl broke out.

KTVT-TV reporter Keith Russell later tweeted out a video from the practice, saying the fights "resembled gang wars."

The Cowboys have been involved in three sideline brawls in less than a month, including one that broke out among its own players, Dez Bryant and Tyler Patmon, according to Bleacher Report.

The latest violent incident took place Tuesday in Oxnard, California, where the Cowboys were having a joint practice with the Rams. A reporter for KXAS-TV in Dallas captured the brawl on video and later tweeted it out:

The apparent punch was captured on video from another angle by Scout.com writer Nate Latsch:

The Dallas Morning News' Joe Machota was able to get a closer look at what exactly went on leading up the all-out brawl. Zoomed-in video appears to show Bryant getting punched with his helmet off. A short time later, Rams wide receiver Daniel Rodriguez can be seen tossing Cowboys safety J.J. Wilcox's helmet off to one of the spectators as teammates continue fighting just feet away.

Bryant didn't appear to be injured when a security guard later caught up with him to return the earring that he lost at some point during it all.

As for who exactly may have started the feud, Latsch suggested it was rookie running back Todd Gurly, based on this photo:

NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent later tweeted out a reminder to players on Tuesday afternoon, writing, "no matter how emotional the game becomes, players should not resort to fighting."

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said after the second fight broke out earlier this month that brawling among players is nothing out of the ordinary.

“That’s training camp. That’s not new. That’s been happening at our training camp for years and years and years," Jones said.
