(AP Photo/Philadelphia Daily News, Yong Kim) PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia Eagles excused Riley Cooper from all team activities on Friday as the wide receiver deals with repercussions of being caught on video making a racial slur. Cooper has been sent away from the team to get help with his issues, something the player and the team agreed upon. Coach Chip Kelly made it clear after Friday’s practice, however, that Cooper would be back with the team when he’s ready. “There has never been any question of cutting Riley,” Kelly said. “His status with us is not in question.”
