3 Cowboys Starters Given Good Report, Set to Play Against Rams

The Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams will be starting their 2020 seasons against each other this Sunday night. Thankfully, the Cowboys will not be without three of their starting players who’ve been dealing with injuries in training camp. WR Amari Cooper, CB Chidobe Awuzie, and S Xavier Woods were all confirmed as being ready to play against the Rams.

The confirmation came today from Head Coach Mike McCarthy in one of his routine press conferences.

Amari Cooper, Chido Awuzie and Xavier Woods should be full go for Sunday against the Rams, per Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy

Dallas will already be without OT La’el Collins and LB Sean Lee this week and the next two after as they started the season on injured reserve. Per the COVID-19 rule changes this year, they will be eligible to return in Week 4.

Obviously, adding their top receiver, corner, and safety to that list would’ve been a huge blow for Dallas. But McCarthy’s announcement today bring a major sigh of relief to Cowboys Nation.

Sure, the chance to see CeeDee Lamb in a starting role would have been interesting. But Cooper is a proven number-one and it will be just as nice to see all of top-three receivers out there giving the Rams’ secondary fits.

With a lot of turnover already in the secondary, being without Awuzie and Woods could have been a disaster. But their presence will be stabilizing and take pressure off less experienced player like rookie Trevon Diggs and new starting safety Darian Thompson.

What do you think?

  1. I would much rather see CeeDee as a #3 then have to start him as a #2 right out of the gate. Hopefully, Coop’s 2019 road woes won’t be an issue. With La’el out Dak is gonna need to be able to get rid of the ball quickly. Hello tony Pollard and Blake Jarwin!

    • Yeah, i wouldn’t be surprised to see Blake Jarwin have the most receptions this week. The Rams linebackers aren’t that good and Jarwin might be able to use his athleticism to beat their safeties. Lamb will also have a big game in his debut.

  2. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t concerned about Cooper ALREADY having injury issues. Due to injuries he was never right last yr The drafting of Lamb might turn out to be have been more a necessity than a luxury. Hope I’m wrong and our 100 mil dollar WR isn’t chronically an injury problem.
