Cowboys WR Amari Cooper expected to play vs. Vikings

The Dallas Cowboys are up for a tough fight against the Minnesota Vikings and will need all of the reinforcements they can get. Fortunately for them, Amari Cooper should be able to suit up and play today.

Adam Schefter reported that the wideout is likely to be available on Sunday night.

Cooper has been limited in team practices over the week due to the injuries he sustained on his knee and ankle. While the contusion on the knee is still far from fully recovered, it gives the fans a lot of relief that they will be able to see their wideout play without any problems.

However, it wasn’t like his return to the active roster was left in any doubt. The MRI results looked encouraging enough to have team owner Jerry Jones gushing about his wide receiver’s current bill of health.

“His MRI or his assessment of where he is right now would give him a total clean bill of health if we were drafting him tonight or if we were signing him tonight,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “So, let’s get that straight.”

Cooper has been a revelation for the Cowboys this season. He’s been one of Dak Prescott’s favorite targets, notching 701 receiving yards and six touchdowns on eight starts. He will be turning on the afterburners as well against the Vikings, and it will be up to the defense to try and stop the good times from rolling for him.
