Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy said Cooper (rib) will be a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.

Cooper checked out of the Cowboys' Week 2 win over the Chargers for two plays while tending to a bruised rib, finishing the day with an underwhelming 3-24-0 line on five targets. He'll benefit from a longer turnaround for the Week 3 contest with Dallas hosting the Eagles on "Monday Night Football," and the fact that Cooper will be on the field in some capacity for the Cowboys' first official practice of the week bodes well for his chances of starting and taking on a normal workload in the divisional matchup. Cooper would ideally turn in a full practice Friday or Saturday and enter the Week 3 matchup minus an injury designation.
