With the Philadelphia Eagles down a wide receiver in Jeremy Maclin, Riley Cooper is going to be covering that spot. However he'll have to do some damage control before hand. 

A tape was recently released that showed Eagles' wide receiver Riley Cooper yelling a racial slur at a security guard at a Kenny Chesney concert. Now Riley is speaking out about the incident, and apologizing for what he said.

His quarterback, Michael Vick, is coming to his aide. After Vick's brother Marcus issued a 'bounty' on Cooper's head, Vick said he does not agree with what his brother tweeted.

The question now: How will Cooper's other teammates react to what he said?
