Cowboys get good news on Amari Cooper’s knee

The Cowboys star receiver seems okay.

NFL: Buffalo Bills at Dallas Cowboys Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Amari Cooper has had a season full of injuries but somehow manages to keep playing. Not just keeps playing, but doing it at a high level. Fortunately for the Cowboys, it appears that Cooper will continue being able to play.

Cooper took a helmet to his knee late in the fourth quarter against the Bills that sent him somersaulting and landing hard on the ground. He stayed down for a while and the injury looked as if it could be serious. Cooper was actually able to return to the game at the end, but he still needed to have his knee checked out after he was limping post-game.

Cooper had an MRI on Friday and it’s been reported there was no structural damage to his knee. If the Cowboys are going to have any chance of turning things around during the last part of the season, Cooper is going to be a big part of it. He has 64 catches for 971 yards and seven touchdowns on the year, and is the legitimate number one receiver in the Cowboys arsenal.

It’s been remarkable how Cooper has fought through so many lower body injuries so far this season. It appears he’ll continue doing so.
