Cooper signed a contract with Washington on Monday.
Cooper's spot on Washington's 53-man roster comes following the placement of starting guards Shawn Lauvao (knee) and Brandon Scherff (pectoral) on injured reserve. The 2013 first-rounder will provide much-needed depth to the Redskins' offensive line, and could slot into the starting rotation during Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.
Cooper (knee) participated in team drills during Sunday's practice as he saw his first 11-on-11 action of training camp, Matt Barrows of The Athletic reports.
Cooper will continue being eased back into action after coming off the PUP list last week, as the 49ers won't rush him back from an MCL injury. He'll compete for the starting spot at right guard upon his eventual return to full strength, but his availability for Thursday's preseason opener doesn't look too promising as he just took 11-on-11 snaps for the first time Sunday.
Cooper (knee) has been cleared from the PUP list and will be eligible to return to practice, Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group reports.
Cooper began training camp on the PUP list as his recovery from an MCL injury remained in progress, but the offensive lineman has progressed enough to return to the practice field.
Cooper is still in the process of rehabbing an MCL injury that required surgery in January. It isn't clear how long the offensive lineman will be sidelined in training camp, but there at least doesn't seem to be any concern that his absence will extend into the preseason.
