Less than 48 hours after video of his racial epithet surfaced, Riley Cooper has decided to take a leave of absence from Eagles team activities in order to seek counseling.

This decision comes on the heels of LeSean McCoy's comments yesterday, as well as reports of a conflicted locker room in Philadelphia.

Mike Florio thinks that Cooper's absence is the best thing for the Eagles right now, and depending on how the wide receiver's teammates respond, Florio says Cooper's career in the NFL might be over.
