Other teammates have also voiced their opinions:
Head coach Chip Kelly said that he was "appalled" at Cooper's comments, but also said that the receiver was never in danger of being released from the team.

It's a very delicate situation that we all understand. Somehow we've all got to find a way to get past it." Hopefully, this will blow over at some point and that it doesn't divide the team.
