    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Shaken up late in win

    Amari Cooper caught three of five targets for 24 yards in Sunday's 20-17 win over the Chargers, but he suffered a rib injury on his final catch late in the fourth quarter, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.Cooper's 12-yard grab, in which he split two defenders but took a shot to the ribs as he cut between them, helped set up a 56-yard game-winning field goal by Greg Zuerlein. The receiver's tepid numbers were reflected in a quiet day for the Dallas passing game as a whole, but if the injury isn't serious, Cooper will look to rebound in Week 3 facing an Eagles defense he has averaged over 91 yards a game against in six career meetings since coming to the Dallas Cowboys.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Logs 13 catches in loss

    Amari Cooper secured 13 of 16 targets for 139 yards and two touchdowns in the Dallas Cowboys' 31-29 loss to the Buccaneers on Thursday night.The multi-time Pro Bowler shook off an extremely truncated preseason that was a byproduct of offseason ankle surgery to pace all pass catchers in receptions, targets and receiving yards. Cooper's elite route-running skills were on display throughout the night as he consistently got the best of the Buccaneers secondary, and his five- and 21-yard touchdown grabs both brought the Cowboys within less than a field goal of Tampa Bay. While Dallas ultimately fell just short, Cooper's performance and his clear return to full health are certainly encouraging for fantasy managers who invested some draft capital in him. The 27-year-old will aim to stay hot in a Week 2 road battle versus the Chargers on Sunday, Sept. 19.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Limited snaps in preseason debut

    Amari Cooper (ankle) didn't see a target but got one carry, losing four yards, in Saturday's preseason loss to the Texans.The 27-year-old saw his first action of the preseason and played the first quarter along with the rest of the Dallas Cowboys' offensive starters, and the fact the team was willing to use Cooper on a jet sweep is a strong sign he's fully recovered from his offseason ankle surgery. He also saw one target on the team's third drive that got wiped out by a penalty. Cooper may have to share the spotlight a little more in 2021 with second-year receiver CeeDee Lamb, but Cooper remains more than capable of a big campaign -- depending, of course, on the health of Dak Prescott (shoulder).

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Set for limited action Saturday

    Amari Cooper will suit up for Saturday's preseason contest against the Texans but handle limited reps, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.Cooper is only expected to handle 10-12 snaps during his 2021 preseason debut, per Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News. The Dallas Cowboys activated Cooper from the PUP list Aug. 10 and he resumed participating in padded practice during Monday's session. All signs are that his recovery from January ankle surgery continues to progress as planned.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Plans to play in preseason game

    Amari Cooper (ankle) intends to run the full route tree during practice Wednesday in preparation for Saturday's preseason contest versus the Texans, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.Cooper indicated that he feels 100 percent healthy but will test everything out Wednesday before determining whether or not he will suit up Saturday. Per David Helman of the Dallas Cowboys' official site, Cooper will only play about 10 or so snaps in the contest if he does suit up, so it doesn't sound like he will be heavily involved even if he's given the green light.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Back in pads

    Amari Cooper (ankle) is in pads during Monday's Dallas Cowboys Night practice, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.Cooper opened training camp on the PUP list, the result of residual irritation from January ankle surgery. The Cowboys activated him last Tuesday, but Monday's session marked the first time he donned pads this summer. Per Jon Machota of The Athletic, Cooper proceeded to take part in individual drills, but it's very likely that he's easing into action to avoid any sort of setback.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Not ready to resume practice

    Amari Cooper (ankle) said in a recent interview with 105.3 The Fan Dallas would be ready to begin practicing "within the next couple of weeks," The Dallas Morning News reports.When asked if he would be on the field right away if it were up to him, the wide receiver responded, "No, I wouldn't be out there today. But, as far as the couple of weeks are concerned, it's, you know, just me talking and communicating with the trainers." That timetable gives Cooper a shot at playing in one or both of the Dallas Cowboys' final two preseason games, but it's just as likely the team keeps him out of exhibition action entirely with an eye on getting him ready for Week 1. As yet, there's no sign the ankle issue will cause him to miss any regular-season snaps.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Removed from PUP list

    Amari Cooper (ankle) has been removed from the PUP list, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.Per the report, the move doesn't ensure that Cooper will immediately re-join practice, but in any case, the wideout is expected to be ready for the team's regular-season opener, Jon Machota of The Athletic notes. It remains to be seen if/when Cooper will suit up for any preseason action, but Gehlken relayed Tuesday that the pass catcher is "considered to be in great shape" at this stage.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Looking great in rehab work

    Coach Mike McCarthy said Amari Cooper (ankle) "looks great" and has been doing good work with the training staff, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.McCarthy said he's been getting "extremely positive" reports from the strength and conditioning staff, perhaps hinting at Cooper making it back on the practice field soon. However, team president Jerry Jones said last week that he expected Cooper to resume practicing in mid-August, so we shouldn't expect anything too imminent. Cooper hasn't practiced in any capacity since having ankle surgery in early January, but Jones did mention that he thought the wideout could briefly appear in a game this preseason.

    Cowboys' Amari Cooper: Targeting mid-August return

    Dallas Cowboys president Jerry Jones said Amari Cooper (ankle) should return to practice in mid-August and make at least one brief appearance in the preseason, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports.Placed on the PUP list to start training camp, Cooper is expected to begin practicing at some point in August, with Jones specifically mentioning the week after an Aug. 13 preseason game against Arizona. The 27-year-old wideout had ankle surgery in January, and while a report in early June revealed that he still was dealing with irritation, Cooper apparently is doing better now that another month and a half has passed. The Cowboys otherwise have all their starters on offense healthy for training camp, including QB Dak Prescott, LT Tyron Smith, RG Zack Martin and RT La'el Collins -- a quartet that combined for 47 missed games last season.
