Chip Kelly: Eagles Not Planning To Release Riley Cooper
Riley Cooper has been excused from all activities with the Eagles while he seeks counseling, after video of him using racial slurs surfaced on Wednesday.
Cooper is taking some time off from the team, but according to Chip Kelly, it’s not permanent.
According to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com, Kelly said Cooper’s leave of absence was not in regards to a future release from the roster.
Chip: "his status with us is not in question."

Kelly also said there was a team meeting without Cooper today, and even though players had an open forum, no one player has told him that they wouldn’t play with Cooper.
