Riley Cooper Rejoins Team

WR Riley Cooper will be back at practice on Tuesday

WR Riley Cooper will be back at practice on Tuesday

After being excused from all team activities on August 2 for using a racial slur, WR Riley Cooper is all set to rejoin the team. He will participate in Tuesday’s practice, where the #2 receiver job is still waiting for him. So long as the players accept him back, Cooper should have no trouble at all reclaiming his starting position. That’s not necessarily a given, though.

Cooper’s interactions with his teammates will undoubtedly be awkward, tense, and in some cases, hostile. None of the Eagles have forgotten about his comments, even after he paid a fine and went through sensitivity training. Not all of his teammates are prepared to forgive him, and Cooper could still be released if his presence proves too disconcerting in the locker room.
