Cole Not Suspended, Accepts Punishment

Trent Cole's involvement in a fracas at the end of the Eagles-Giants game last Sunday night will not result in a suspension, the defensive end confirmed.

"I will be playing Sunday," Cole said.

Cole apologized for his actions and said that he will accept whatever repercussions are placed upon him by the league. After Darren Howard forced a fumble on a sack of Eli Manning with less than 30 seconds to go in the game, Trent Cole was called for an unnecessary roughness penalty and disqualified from the game for throwing two punches at Giants' offensive lineman Shaun O' Hara.

"It was a situation that got ugly and got out of hand, and now I have to pay the consequences for my actions and I'm going to move forward," Cole said. "Whatever punishment the NFL deals to you, you have to take it. I don't think they're going to be unfair about it ... I'm the one that was out there tussling and fighting."
