Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper has lost the friendship of at least one teammate after a video of him uttering a racial slur went viral this week.

"I can't respect a guy like that," Eagles running back LeSeaon McCoy said on Thursday, via Albert Breer of the NFL Network. He also told Breer that it hurts "losing a friend."

Cooper could be heard using the N-word at a Kenny Chesney concert in video first obtained by Philadelphia sports website Crossing Broad.

Shortly after the video began generating attention on Wednesay, Michael Vick's brother, Marcus, lashed out at Cooper on Twitter, even putting a bounty on him. The Eagles' quarterback told USA Today Sports that he forgave Cooper and doesn't agree with his brother's comments.

The Eagles announced on Thursday that they are setting Cooper up for sensitivity training. The team also fined Cooper, per NFL.com
