Riley Cooper excused from Eagles training camp

Riley Cooper to seek counseling

PHILADELPHIA - Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper has been excused from all team activities so that he can seek counseling. The move comes in response to Cooper's racial slur at a concert in June, made public thanks to a viral video.

Cooper has issued an apology to both the media and his team mates. Some members of the team have forgiven him. Others have lost all respect for him.

The Eagles have made it clear that they want Cooper to complete the counseling and sensitivity training before he returns to the Eagles. No timetable has been set as to when that will happen.
