Los Angeles Rams legendary running back and Pro Football Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson said he is no longer welcome on the team's sidelines during games after a dispute with coach Jeff Fisher.
"I won't be at the Coliseum as long as Fisher is coaching," Dickerson told ESPN on Monday. "I'm a man of my word, and if I tell you something, I'm going to do it."
Dickerson, 56, said Fisher told him that players feel "uncomfortable" with him because of his criticism of the team, and Dickerson told AM 570 in Los Angeles that a member of the Rams front office told him he is no longer welcome on the sidelines.
Fisher denied the rift between the two at his media session Monday.
"I don't know where that's coming from," said Fisher, who said he had "a really good conversation" with Dickerson last week.
"I'd welcome him in the building. I'd love to have him come in. I'd love to have him come to practice. I'd love to have him come in the meetings."
Dickerson spent the first five seasons of his storied career with the Rams from 1983 to 1987 during their first stint in Los Angeles, rushing for 7,245 yards and 56 touchdowns.
The six-time Pro Bowler totaled 13,259 rushing yards and 90 touchdowns in his 11 seasons with the Rams, Indianapolis Colts, Oakland Raiders and Atlanta Falcons.
Dickerson holds the NFL's single-season rushing record with 2,105 yards in 1984.
