Riley Cooper has run a comeback pattern, and few people might have predicted it would come this quickly.
The humiliated Philadelphia Eagles receiver is returning to the team just four days after announcing he planned to step away from the NFL to work on personal issues.
On Tuesday, the Eagles tweeted: "WR Riley Cooper has returned from his excused absence and is scheduled to practice with the team today."
A video surfaced last week of an apparently intoxicated Cooper using a racial slur for black people while at a country music concert in June. When the video came to light and went viral, Cooper apologized profusely, saying he was "ashamed and disgusted" about his behavior. He was fined by the Eagles and agreed to work with behavioral specialists.
