Amari Cooper has been recuperating from an ankle injury for the majority of the summer. Last week, though, he received good news: he passed his physical and was formally removed off the physically unable to perform list.
If that hopeful news wasn’t enough to make Dallas Cowboys supporters happy, Cooper’s latest statement should.
Cooper responded, “I feel like I am,” when asked if he was 100 percent on Tuesday. He admits that he still needs to run the entire route tree to ensure he’s fully recovered, but it’s a start in the right direction.
Cooper intends to complete the entire route tree on Wednesday. Cooper might play against the Houston Texans on Saturday, assuming his exercise goes well.
For a known commodity like Cooper, preseason action isn’t required, but it wouldn’t hurt to shake off some rust in August.
Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (ankle) on whether he is 100%: “I feel like I am.” But would need to run the full route tree in order to better gauge. Plans to do so Wednesday and then play in Saturday’s preseason game vs. Texans. pic.twitter.com/WZD0uf3Hj3— Michael Gehlken (@GehlkenNFL) August 17, 2021
The Cowboys boast one of the best receiving corps in the league on paper. After all, Amari Cooper, Michael Gallup, and CeeDee Lamb are a devastating combination.
With so many weapons on the roster, offensive coordinator Kellen Moore will have his work cut out for him keeping everyone pleased. Moore is fortunate in that there is a means to ensure that each offensive weapon is concentrated every week.
“Winning,” Cooper said when asked how Dallas can keep its offensive weapons happy this fall. “That’s how everybody will be happy.”
The Cowboys will start this season on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’ll be quite the challenge for “America’s Team.”
