Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Jason Avant has revealed that he and his teammates are putting the race scandal involving Riley Cooper behind them.

Cooper hit the headlines after a video emerged of him uttering a racial slur at a concert in June, which sparked a furious reaction from some of the Eagles players

However, after time apart and several apologies from the 25-year-old, most of the players and staff in the organisation are ready to move on.

Avant told reporters: "Our guys are definitely over it."

Philadelphia face the New England Patriots in their pre-season opener on Thursday.
