Chip Kelly believes that Riley Cooper has done a good job so far for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly has insisted that wide receiver Riley Cooper has done a good job since being promoted into the first team.

A pre-season injury to Jeremy Maclin has seen Cooper become the second receiver in the team and he has managed just 68 yards from six catches. However Kelly is pleased with his impact.

"Riley's done an unbelievable job," Kelly told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Especially blocking on the perimeter, great red zone target for us."

Cooper has had 16 attempts at catches and has managed one touchdown so far.
