This is surprising news for the Cowboys.

Sometimes, Cowboys reporters just drop injury news on an unsuspecting public out of the blue. That is what has happened today as it’s being reported that star receiver Amari Cooper had to have an MRI on his right ankle. There are conflicting reports about the results as of now. Calvin Watkins made it seem like a precautionary thing and that Cooper was fine.

David Moore gave it a little more sense of seriousness with his tweet.

Moore notes that the team doesn’t have results yet, so that leaves the situation up in the air. A player might get an MRI even though the team doesn’t think anything is seriously wrong, but the fact that there is an underlying issue that even calls for an MRI is somewhat troubling. At no point after the Dolphins game did the club or Jason Garrett indicate there was an injury to Cooper, so it’s unclear when something happened that caused the team to order an MRI.

Ed Werder notes that the Cowboys aren’t concerned.

Cooper ended up being limited at today’s practice. The rest of the Cowboys report had some interesting news.

Xavier Woods returned to practice although he was limited, as did Tavon Austin. Zack Martin was also limited with his back issues and linebacker Luke Gifford got his first practice session of the season even though he was also limited.
