Philadelphia Eagles player Riley Cooper is back at practice after a brief leave of absence from the team, following a racial slur he made in a video that went viral.
The embattled wide receiver said that he's spoken with each of his teammates individually, asking them not to forgive him, but to judge him by his future.
"I talked to everyone individually," he said. "I told them, 'I don't want you to forgive me, because that puts the burden on you. I want it all on me.'"
"I told them that and I told them I apologize. They could tell it was from the heart, they know I'm not that kind of person. It feels good to have support."
He added that he felt that "100 percent" of his teammates supported him, something he sensed on the field in his return to Eagles training camp.
