The play that caused Cooper to need an X-Ray occurred around the 7:05 mark of the fourth quarter. The Cowboys were in need of a relief option for Dak Prescott and Cooper managed to make a catch short about 7 yards off the line scrimmage. However, he was met immediately by a defender that was aiming low for the takedown.
Cooper has dealt with ongoing injuries to his knee and ankle throughout the 2019 season. However, he has often played through those injuries and has managed to be a very productive receiving option for Prescott.
While Cooper didn’t record a touchdown against the Bills, he still totaled 8 receptions for 85 yards. On the season, he has racked up an impressive 64 receptions and 971 receiving yards along with 7 touchdowns. He has accomplished that despite failing to record a single catch against the New England Patriots in Week 12.
The presence that Cooper has provided the Cowboys since being traded by the Oakland Raiders has been nothing short of incredible. Many criticized Dallas at the time for giving up a first-round pick for him, but the backlash has proven to be very wrong. He has proven to be a great primary receiving threat.
Updates regarding the results of Cooper’s X-Ray are expected to come on Friday.
