This would be a huge blow to the Cowboys receiver group with Michael Gallup already sidelined with a calf strain. Noah Brown stepped in for the drive to join Cedrick Wilson and CeeDee Lamb.
Cooper has been banged up since last season, entering the season working through an ankle injury. Despite this, he went off for 13 receptions, 139 yards, and two touchdowns in the team’s season opener against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Last week, he battled through a rib injury to record three receptions for 26 yards in their victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday Night Football.
Ezekiel Elliott punched in the touchdown for Dallas on the drive Cooper was out, so we’ll see if they go more run moving forward.
