Cooper (illness) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday and appears on track to play in Thursday's game in New Orleans, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

After missing the Cowboys' last two games while he completed a 10-day quarantine following a positive COVID-19 test, Cooper reported back to the team facility Monday and looks on track to get in at least some practice activity Wednesday now that he's officially been added back to the 53-man roster. Though Cooper is expected to play Thursday, his workload could be scaled back given that he reportedly dealt with virus symptoms for over a week and hasn't been on the field for nearly 12 days. If Cooper looks good in his return to practice, he could still handle his usual role, in which case quarterback Dak Prescott will have a healthy receiver trio of Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup for just the third time this season.
