Cowboys WR Amari Cooper Placed on COVID List, to Miss Week 11 Game
The Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott will be deprived of one of their deadliest guns when they travel to Kansas City for their game of the week 11. Wide receiver Amari Cooper has been placed on the reserve list. / COVID of the team, according to the team site.
The timing of the roster change means he will be permanently ineligible to play on Sunday. And due to the short week before the Thanksgiving game, Cooper is in serious threat of missing out on this contest as well, in which he was set to face his former team of Raiders. Cooper’s vaccine status, which is not known, could even impact his availability for the Cowboys’ Week 13 game in New Orleans.
Cooper is currently second on the team in receptions, yards and touchdowns. As one of the few current Cowboys players to have attended a game at Arrowhead Stadium, Cooper had shared some tips with his teammates this week for dealing with the harsh and noisy environment.
“It’s different from other places. It’s quite noisy there. Cooper said. “It will be a challenge for us, certainly with the noise.”
“It just depends on how you can handle it as a team. I think we handled it pretty well as a team, especially with Dak acknowledging the blitz, able to get into the right situations and get the ball out on time and all. We handled it well. I don’t think we’ve faced a team that has done as much blitz as them, so again that will be another challenge for us from that aspect as well.
CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson will now be Prescott’s top three pass-catching targets in what should be a high-scoring affair.
