Many of the Eagles' prominent players weighed in on Riley Cooper's racial epithet yesterday, but LeSean McCoy spoke to the media about the incident for the first time Thursday.

The All-Pro running back, who has been a teammate of Cooper's since the former Florida Gator was drafted by the team in 2010, appeared to have conflicted emotions according to CSNPhilly's Eagles Insider Geoff Mosher. While other players seemed willing to move forward after Cooper's apology, McCoy still has obvious doubts about his teammate, saying that he was "embarrassed" by the video and that he "can't really respect someone like that."
