Grant Paulsen of 106.7 The Fan in D.C. reports that Chris Cooley's shattered left index finger is expected to keep him out for six weeks.
Paulsen, who cites a league source, reports that Cooley will have surgery on Monday. The Skins may or may not decide to keep Cooley on I.R.; his effectiveness has been minimal this season. It's probably good news for Cooley long term because he'll be able to stay off his troublesome left knee. It's better news for Fred Davis in fantasy leagues. Davis won't have to "compete" for targets with Cooley, and should be a top-ten tight end option the rest of the way.Oct 16 - 7:22 PM
