The Eagles released a statement on Thursday afternoon updating the Riley Cooper situation. The statement read:

“In meeting with Riley yesterday, we decided together that his next step will be to seek outside assistance to help him fully understand the impact of his words and actions. He needs to reflect. As an organization, we will provide the resources he needs to do so.”

This comes after NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said on ESPN Radio on Thursday morning that league will not take action against Cooper.

The Eagles have fined Cooper.
