Riley Cooper rejoins Eagles after sensitivity training

Posted · Add Comment

Wide receiver Riley Cooper has rejoined the Philadelphia Eagles today after being excused from team activities after a video surfaced of him using a racial slur in anger toward an African-American security guard at a Kenny Chesney concern this summer.

He'll practice with the team today after being away from the team since Friday to undergo sensitivity training and counseling.

Cooper recently informed the team that he received threats on Twitter prior to the release of the video, and the Eagles told NFL security.

Cooper was fined for conduct detrimental to the team and admonished in statements by owner Jeffrey Lurie.

Quarterback Michael Vick has said he forgives Cooper, who is white, but other teammates, including running back LeSean McCoy, said it will be tough for them to respect him going forward.
