The Philadelphia Eagles announced today that they’ve excused wide receiver Riley Cooper from team activities to attending counseling after being caught on video saying a racial slur.
#Eagles announce WR Riley Cooper has been excused from all team activities as he seeks counseling for his recent actions.

We reported earlier today that the Eagles might end up cutting Cooper, but that doesn’t seem to be the case right now.
My guess is the Eagles will see how things go when Cooper returns to he team after his counseling.
