Oregon still hasn't sent Blount proposal to Pac-10 office

Oregon coach Chip Kelly said that he hasn't decided whether he will recommend that running back LeGarrette Blount be reinstated for the Ducks' game at Stanford on Saturday.
"There's been no decision made at all," Kelly said on the weekly Pac-10 teleconference.
Kelly said that once he makes his decision, it will be forwarded up a "chain of command": athletic director Mike Bellotti, to Oregon's president Richard Lariviere and then to the Pac-10 office, which will make the final call.
This doesn't necessarily mean Blount has done anything wrong. Kelly said Monday that Blount "has accepted his role. He's done a great job."
