According to NFL.com, the Philadelphia Eagles have fined wide receiver, Riley Cooper, for his racist comment that was captured on video at a Kenny Chesney show
The blog, Crossing Broad, has the video of Riley saying 'I will fight every n**** here'. Yikes.
There's also VIDEO of Riley Cooper fighting outside the concert which may have led to racist comments once he got inside the show.
He's apologized for the racist comment on Twitter....

Michael Vick has forgiven Riley and commented on what his brother tweeted...
"I just spoke to Riley inside the bubble during the walk-through for about 15 minutes. [Coach Chip Kelly] allowed me to say a few words to the team. He allowed all of us to have open dialogue for five minutes on how we wanted to move forward. I think we cleared the air. We all have an understanding that the most important thing for this football team is to move forward as of right now."
"I don't agree with what my brother's saying," Michael Vick said. "Riley's still my teammate. He just stood in front of us as a man and apologized for what he said. Somewhere deep down you've got to find some level of respect for that. ... My brother has to not show a certain level of ignorance himself."
