Amari Cooper Injury Updates

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) isn’t listed on the final Week 2 injury report. He was limited on Thursday but put in a full practice on Friday. We’ll keep an eye on the ankle, but Cooper is a must-start in Sunday’s likely shootout vs. Atlanta.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper was added to Thursday's injury report as limited with a foot. ESPN's Todd Archer, meanwhile, hears that Cooper is dealing with a foot injury. Either way, his participation level in Friday's practice now needs to be closely monitored ahead of Sunday's game vs. Atlanta.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final Week 1 injury report. His matchup on Sunday night vs. CB Jalen Ramsey and the Rams is a fair concern, but the hamstring isn’t.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper is listed on the Week 1 injury report with a hamstring but was a full participant in Wednesday's practice. So, barring a setback, he'll be ready for Sunday night's opener against the Rams. Cooper figures to see plenty of CB Jalen Ramsey in that one.

Cowboys QB Dak Prescott suffered an AC joint injury in his throwing shoulder in the 1st quarter of Sunday's win over the Rams. Prescott never left that game but attempted just 20 passes over the final 3-and-a-half quarters. HC Jason Garrett said Wednesday that an MRI revealed no structural damage to the shoulder but that Prescott is "not very functional at the moment." Garrett also stopped short of guaranteeing that Prescott will play against the Eagles this weekend, although ESPN's Ed Werder reports that Prescott is expected to play. We'll keep a close eye on the situation over the next few days -- but we just moved Prescott and his WRs down the Week 16 Rankings.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper told reporters that he'll get an x-ray Friday after taking a helmet to the knee late in the loss to the Bills. Cooper briefly returned after the injury but seem hobbled. He's dealt with a bunch of lower-body injuries throughout this season. We'll update his status when we learn more.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (knee, ankle) is active for tonight’s game against the Vikings. He’s been playing effectively through injuries all season, and we haven’t heard anything about him being limited tonight. Cooper remains a WR1 with upside.

The MRI on Cowboys WR Amari Cooper's knee revealed just a bruise, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. Cooper is expected to practice Friday and played Sunday night against the Vikings. The knee adds some risk, but Cooper has been playing well through injuries most of the season.

David Helman of the team website reports that Cowboys WR Amari Cooper won't practice Thursday because of the knee injury he sustained Monday night. Helman says he thinks "that's more about the short week than anything" and that the Cowboys are "optimistic" that Cooper will be able to practice Friday and play Sunday night. We'll obviously be watching this situation closely. Let's hope Cooper doesn't enter Sunday as a question mark, given the late kick. If he's ready, Cooper has been a monster in home games since arriving in Dallas.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper is dealing with a knee injury that he originally suffered in practice last week and aggravated in Monday night's win over the Giants, according to ESPN's Todd Archer. Cooper was able to play through it vs. the G-Men, scoring a late 45-yard TD. And Archer confirms that Cooper is expected to play against the Vikings on Sunday night. We'll keep an eye on him.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (quad) is active for tonight’s game against the Eagles. He only got in a limited practice on Friday and won’t be at 100%. Cooper made it through just 3 snaps before aggravating the quad injury last week. Tonight’s matchup is awesome, but Cooper comes with plenty of risk in fantasy lineups. WR Randall Cobb (hip, back) is also active.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Cowboys WRs Amari Cooper (quad) and Randall Cobb (hip, back) are expected to play against the Eagles tonight. It's a surprising turnaround for Cooper, who seemed unlikely to play most of the week until returning to a limited practice on Friday. It's safe to assume that he won't be at 100% tonight, though, and we saw last week that he's at risk of aggravating the quad injury. Consider Cooper a risk/reward WR2 for Week 7. OTs Tyron Smith (ankle) and La'El Collins (knee) are also expected to play tonight, per Schefter, so QB Dak Prescott's stock is on the rise.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (quad) returned to practice on Friday after sitting out the previous 2 days and is listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game against the Eagles. Cooper told reporters after Friday’s workout that he expects to play. We’ll look for an update on his status on Sunday morning. If he ends up active, Cooper will be a risk/reward fantasy play in a plus matchup at less than 100%. He made it through just 3 snaps before aggravating that quad injury last week. WR Randall Cobb (hip, back) is also listed as questionable for Sunday night’s game.

ESPN's Todd Archer hears that Cowboys WR Amari Cooper's availability for this Sunday night's game against the Eagles is "in serious question." Cooper is reportedly in significant pain with his quad bruise. Considering it's an aggravation of an injury originally suffered in Week 5 -- and that Dallas has a Week 8 bye -- it might make sense for the team to hold Cooper out this week. We'll keep an eye on him.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that Cowboys WR Amari Cooper has been diagnosed with a thigh bruise. "There is no indication of long-term damage," Rapoport adds. It's relatively good news -- but the injury was still enough to keep Cooper from returning to Sunday's loss to the Jets. Consider him iffy for this weekend's game vs. the Eagles.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper exited in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Jets with a quad injury. ESPN's Todd Archer reports that this is an aggravation of an injury Cooper suffered in last week's loss to the Packers. He's officially questionable to return to this one.

Update: Cooper has been ruled out.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) was limited in practice all week but isn’t listed on the final injury report. An MRI on that ankle came back clean, and we’ve heard nothing to suggest it’s a real concern. Keep Cooper locked into fantasy lineups for Sunday night’s showdown with the Saints.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (foot) put in a full week of practice and isn’t listed on the final injury report. Despite missing most of August, Cooper is ready to rock for Sunday’s opener against the Giants. He’s a strong fantasy play.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects WR Amari Cooper (foot) to return to practice on Monday. He's been sidelined since the 1st week of August. “I don’t see it impacting us at all,” Jones said of Cooper's injury. “I’m just glad he’s got his health in the place that it is relative to his foot ... I think he’s well ahead of when he stepped on the field with us last year as to what we’re trying to do offensively." Cooper's ADP has dropped into the late 3rd round. He's a fine pick at that price.
