A lot of the chatter on sports talk radio, the Internet, on Twitter, etc surrounding the fallout from Riley Cooper's use of a racial slur has focused on whether or not the Philadelphia Eagles should simply cut ties with the now controversial receiver. Today, Chip Kelly put that speculation to rest by stating he never even considered cutting Cooper and that his status with the Birds is not in question.

From CSN's Geoff Mosher:

Chip: "There has never been any question of cutting Riley."

Chip: "he understands the weight of the situation, the magnitude of the situation. This is not something you just put aside."

Chip said he has "divorced" football from the issue when asked if Coop's roster spot in jeopardy bec. of missed time.
