Cooper is still in concussion protocol Tuesday, Matt Schneidman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Cooper was forced to leave in the first half of Sunday's game against the Seahawks after suffering a helmet-to-helmet hit that resulted in a concussion. Reports also surfaced this week that Cooper is on the trading block, but if the wideout's concussion is a serious one, it could delay any inevitable transactions for the Raiders.
Jay Glazer first reported that Cooper was being dangled on Fox NFL Sunday, but the sought-after compensation previously was unknown. If the Raiders are dead-set on landing a first-rounder, it'll be a hard sell for interested parties in advance of the trade deadline Tuesday, Oct. 30. Since opening his career with back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons, Cooper has been hit-or-miss, accumulating 100-plus yards four times while falling short of 40 yards on 12 occasions in 20 games the last two years. He's also tending to a concussion at the moment, so there's no telling when he'll gain clearance to play.
Cooper (concussion) has been ruled out for the remainder of Sunday's contest against the Seahawks.
Cooper was held without a catch before sustaining a helmet-to-helmet hit during the first half of Sunday's tilt in London. His absence could allow for Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts to see additional targets from quarterback Derek Carr as the Raiders play from behind.

Cooper accompanied training staff to the locker after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit during the first half, so he'll need to clear the league's concussion protocol in order to have a chance at returning Sunday. If he remains sidelined, Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts would handle a majority of the snaps at wide receiver.
Cooper headed to the locker room during Sunday's game against the Seahawks after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit, Vic Tafur of The Athletic reports.
Prior to exiting the game, Cooper did not catch a pass. If he's unable to return to action Sunday, added looks would be available for fellow receivers Jordy Nelson, Martavis Bryant and Seth Roberts.
