Cooper (quadriceps/ankle) caught all five of his targets for 106 yards in Sunday's 37-10 win over the Eagles.
Cooper was held out of team activities until late in the week while nursing two separate lower-body injuries, but he was able to heal up in time for an important primetime matchup against a divisional foe. Dallas was in control of the contest from start to finish, so the 25-year-old had to make due with just five targets (tied for the lowest mark in a full game this season). Cooper maximized those targets, reaching the century mark for the third time this season. The star wideout's fantasy owners were not only rewarded with an unlikely start and strong stat line, but the Cowboys' upcoming bye week will give the receiver plenty of time to fully heal up before a soft matchup against the Giants on Monday Night Football in Week 9.
Cooper (quadriceps/ankle) is active for Sunday's game versus the Eagles, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Cooper played three offensive snaps before an early exit in last Sunday's defeat to the Jets due to what was termed a thigh bruise. His ensuing practice reps were restricted by ankle and quadriceps injuries, resulting in just one limited showing Friday. After that session, there was a belief that Cooper would suit up this weekend, which has come to fruition. Cooper and Michael Gallup will serve as the Cowboys' top two wide receivers ahead of Randall Cobb, who also is available after sitting out Week 6 with a back issue.
Cooper (quadriceps/ankle) is expected to play Sunday night against the Eagles, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.
Cooper received the questionable tag after working as a limited participant Friday, but his status never truly appeared in doubt. The 25-year-old was limited to only three snaps in last week's loss to the Jets due to the bruised quad, but it doesn't look as though he'll miss additional time. Fellow WR Randall Cobb (back) -- who is also questionable -- is also expected to play Sunday.
Cooper (quadriceps/ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Cooper will carry an injury designation into the weekend after turning in a limited practice Friday, which amounted to his only reps of the week. Despite his minimal activity since exiting the Week 6 loss to the Jets with a bruised quad, Cooper is expected to play Sunday if he experiences no further setbacks before the 8:20 p.m. EDT kickoff, per Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. The same applies to fellow wideout Randall Cobb (back), who is also questionable after managing only one limited practice during the week.
Cooper (quadriceps) was encouraged after Friday's practice and expects to play Sunday night against the Eagles, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Cooper presumably was a limited participant and will likely carry a questionable designation on the final injury report. His optimism meshes with a report earlier Friday from Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, who was told by a source that the wide receiver is on track to play. Heading into a crucial NFC East matchup on the heels of three consecutive losses, the Cowboys will do everything possible to get Cooper on the field Sunday. That said, he may still be treated as a game-time decision ahead of the 8:20 p.m. EDT kickoff.
Cooper (quadriceps/ankle) is expected to practice Friday, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Cooper didn't practice the previous two days, but it appears he'll get some work at the Cowboys' final session of the week. The receiver said Thursday he wasn't sure if he would be able to play Sunday against the Eagles, but Hill relays that Cooper is on track to suit up if he avoids a setback in practice. Cooper's official status for Sunday will be revealed when the Cowboys release their final injury report later Friday.
Cooper (quadriceps/ankle) admitted Thursday that he's uncertain if he'll be ready to play in Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Cooper is listed with two injuries on the Cowboys' official report, but it's the bruised quad he picked up in the Week 6 loss to the Jets that appears to be the greater concern. Though Cooper indicated he was feeling better Thursday, he was a non-participant in practice for the second straight day and was only able to do some running on the side. Cooper indicated he will try to practice Friday, and his activity level in that session should provide a better indication of his status for Week 7.
Coach Jason Garrett said that he doesn't anticipate Cooper (ankle/quadriceps) taking part in Thursday's practice, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Unless Cooper surprises and is able to take part in some light no-contact work, he'll go down as a non-participant in practice for the second straight day. The lack of activity to begin the week doesn't bode well for Cooper's chances of suiting up Sunday against the Eagles, but his involvement in Friday's practice (or lack thereof) will provide a clearer indication of which direction he's trending in.
Cooper didn't practice Wednesday due to ankle and quadriceps injuries, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
A bruised thigh was to blame for Cooper's exit from this past Sunday's loss to the Jets, but it appears the Cowboys are going with the health concerns that he dealt with last week on this week's injury reports. After that game, coach Jason Garrett said the team will take Cooper's situation "day by day," per Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News. Consequently, Cooper's status will be monitored closely as the week goes on to get a sense of his Week 7 availability.
Cooper (thigh) won't practice Wednesday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Coach Jason Garrett already admitted some uncertainty about Cooper's availability for Sunday's game against the Eagles, but Garrett mentioned Wednesday that he still has hope for the wide receiver to practice later this week. Randall Cobb (back) will also miss Wednesday's session, leaving Tavon Austin and Cedrick Wilson to work with Michael Gallup in three-wide sets.
When asked Monday about Cooper's status for a Week 7 game against the Eagles, coach Jason Garrett replied, "(I) don't really know. He has the contusion on his thigh, which obviously bothered him yesterday. ... We'll take his situation day by day," Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Given that Garrett didn't really get into specifics, what Cooper is able to do once the Cowboys return to practice Wednesday will be telling. If he's limited or out this weekend, added snaps alongside Michael Gallup would be available for Tavon Austin and Cedrick Wilson.
Cooper was diagnosed with a thigh bruise after exiting Sunday's 24-22 loss to the Jets, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
While often painful, the injury doesn't typically require a long-term absence, so Cooper could try to make it back for a Week 7 matchup with the Eagles. Listed on the practice report with ankle and quadriceps injuries last week, Cooper was removed from the loss to the Jets in the first quarter, finishing with one catch for three yards on three snaps. His absence freed up extra work for Tavon Austin (93 percent snap share) and Cedrick Wilson (61 percent), with the two players combining for 10 catches and 110 yards on 12 targets.
Cooper (quadriceps) has been ruled out of Sunday's contest at the Jets, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
The Cowboys limited Cooper's practice reps this past week due to ankle and quad issues, only for the wide receiver to presumably aggravate the latter in the first quarter of this game. Cooper joins Randall Cobb (back) and Devin Smith (coach's decision) on the sideline, leaving wide receiver reps to be handled by Michael Gallup, Tavon Austin, Cedrick Wilson and Ventell Bryant.
Cooper is questionable to return to Sunday's road game versus the Jets due to a quadriceps injury, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Cooper was a spectator near the end of the Cowboys' second possession of the contest, standing on the sideline with his helmet off. He was a limited practice participant this week due to ankle and quad issues, the latter of which has reared its head. If he's unable to retake the field, Cooper will end the day with one catch (on two targets) for three yards. Additionally, with Randall Cobb (back) and Devin Smith (coach's decision) inactive, the wide receiver group includes just Michael Gallup, Tavon Austin, Cedrick Wilson and Ventell Bryant.
Cooper (ankle/quadriceps) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Jets, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Fellow wide receiver Randall Cobb (back/hip) is listed as questionable, shaping up as a game-time decision after a pair of missed practices to close out the week. Cooper was a limited participant Wednesday through Friday, so he should be fine for his usual workload Sunday at MetLife Stadium.
Cooper (ankle/quadriceps) was listed as a limited participant in Thursday's practice, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.
Cooper maintained his level of participation from the first practice of the week Wednesday, setting up Friday as an important work day for the wideout as the team evaluates his availability for Sunday's game against the Jets. The ankle injury specifically has been bothering Cooper since Week 4, but he came out of the Week 5 loss to the Packers with an additional issue in tow. Even so, he still posted his best performance of the season versus Green Bay, hauling in 11 of 14 targets for 226 yards and a score.
Cooper (ankle/quadriceps) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Cooper has been nursing a lingering ankle issue since Week 4 but he hasn't missed any time due to the injury. The 25-year-old's quad issue, on the other hand, is a new injury suffered during Sunday's loss to the Packers, according to Todd Archer of ESPN.com. There's not yet any reason to worry that Cooper's availability for the Week 6 matchup with the Jets is in any jeopardy, but the extent of his participation in practice Thursday and Friday will be worth monitoring.
Cooper caught 11 of 14 targets for a career-high 226 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 34-24 loss to the Packers.
While he was a big part of the Cowboys' comeback attempt in the second half, it was a first-quarter catch Cooper didn't make -- that bounced into the waiting arms of Jaire Alexander for the first of three Green Bay INTs on the afternoon -- that set the tone for the game. Cooper has found the end zone in four of five games so far and hauled in at least 80 yards in three of them, giving him a more consistent start to the season than his boom-or-bust performance in 2018.
Cooper (ankle) was listed as a full participant on Thursday's injury report, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports.
Cooper upped his practice reps from Wednesday's limited showing, clearing up his health along the way. On Sunday, he'll look to take advantage of a Packers defense that has allowed an NFL-high 16.5 yards per catch to wide receivers this season
Cooper (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, Calvin Watkins of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Cooper's practice reps were limited last week as well by an ankle injury, but he took the field Sunday night in New Orleans and put up five catches (on eight targets) for 48 yards. On Wednesday, he told Jon Machota of The Athletic, "I'm fine. Healing up. I'm healthy enough to go out there and perform." Because he's already done so once, Cooper wouldn't surprise us if he gets rid of his designation by the end of the week.
