Riley Cooper Returns to Practice, Meets the Media on Tuesday
Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper returned to practice on Tuesday after being excused from team activities for sensitivity training for a racial slur he used at a country music concert in June.
It's been less than a week since a video showing Cooper using the slur on tape was released online.
Cooper has met the media on three separate occasions and has appeared contrite in his apologies to teammates, fans and his family.
Cooper caught two touchdown passes today from quarterbacks Mike Vick and Nick Foles in scrimmages against the Patriots who are in town this week leading up to Friday's first preseason games.
"It felt good to get back out there today and get some high fives and a chest bump from Jason Avant," Cooper told the media.
Cooper was fined an undisclosed amount and sent to sensitivity training for his actions, but the embattled receiver would not divulge what the therapy included.
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly also said today that he expects Cooper to be in uniform for Friday's game.
