What a difference a day makes.

This is definitely true when it comes to Riley Cooper. On Wednesday afternoon, a video came out that showed Cooper using a racial slur to an African-American security guard.

This incident happened on June 8th at the Kenny Chesney concert. But it took weeks for a news outlet to release the video, which spread like wildfire throughout to the national news outlets.

Today, Cooper was at practice, where he was practicing with his teammates. Some of these players had to deal with this racial slur throughout their life.

Cooper was also requested to seek counseling by the Eagles.

“In meeting with Riley yesterday, we decided together that his next step will be to seek outside assistance to help him fully understand the impact of his words and actions,” said the Eagles in a statement. “He needs to reflect. As an organization, we will provide the resources he needs to do so.”

Regardless of the comment, Cooper is still on track to start in Jeremy Maclin’s spot on Week 1. He became the favorite to start in Maclin’s place once Jeremy went down on Saturday with his torn ACL.
