Cowboys WR Amari Cooper officially questionable for Week 10 vs. Vikings
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver has been battling nagging foot and ankle injuries all season. Now, he has a knee issue on top of that, and he is listed as questionable for his team’s Week 10 matchup with the Minnesota Vikings as a result, per Kevin Patra of NFL.com.
Cooper sustained the knee injury during the Cowboys’ win over the New York Giants last Monday. The wide out was seen limping on the sideline early in the contest, but he finished out the game and managed to log four catches for 80 yards and a touchdown.
If Cooper is unable to go on Sunday night, it would obviously be a devastating blow to a Dallas offense that has relied heavily on him this year.
In eight games this season, Cooper has totaled 42 catches for 701 yards and six touchdowns, by far the most production of any Cowboys pass-catcher.
The 25-year-old initially arrived in Dallas midway through last season after coming over in a trade with the Oakland Raiders. Through nine contests with the Cowboys in 2018, Cooper caught 53 passes for 725 yards and six scores. On the season overall, he hauled in 75 receptions for 1,005 yards while reaching the end zone seven times en route to the Pro Bowl.
Cooper, who played his collegiate football at the University of Alabama, was originally selected by the Raiders with the fourth overall pick of the 2015 NFL Draft.
He made the Pro Bowl in each of his first two seasons in Oakland.
The Cowboys are 5-3 thus far in 2019 and hold a slim half-game lead (one in the loss column) over the Philadelphia Eagles for first place in the NFC East.
