It’s for constructive reasons though.
Riley Cooper is taking a break from the Philadelphia Eagles, despite the beginning of preseason being around the corner, because he angrily blurted out a racial slur.
"Riley Cooper will be seeking counseling and we have excused him from all team activities."
It’s good that he’s taking the necessary steps to learn about why people should NEVER say the n-word.
Cooper has acknowledged that it was wrong, he feels terrible and has been forgiven by many of his teammates, but some players are saying that even with all of this contrition, Cooper will pay on the field.
