BREAKING: Amari Cooper on COVID List, Maybe OUT for 2 Games

In a potential shootout between high-powered offenses, the Cowboys may now be without one of their top weapons. Wide Receiver Amari Cooper has been placed on the Reserve/COVID-10 list and will miss Sunday's game at the . What's worse, the short turnaround to means he'll likely be out next Thursday against the as well.

Cooper is practically co-leading the receivers in Dallas so fart in 2021. While he's behind in catches, yards, and touchdowns, Amari is close in all categories and has still come up big in several clutch moments through the season.

Thankfully for Dallas, just returned last week and they still have a potent with in the mix. Cooper's absence is hardly a positive but, as we saw from Weeks 2-9, the Cowboys can still get things done even when one part of their three-headed WR monster is missing.

It's unfortunate if Amari misses Thanksgiving Day as it would be his first game against the Raiders since leaving them in the 2018 between then-Oakland and Dallas. The Cowboys sent their 2019 1st-Round pick to the Raiders in exchange for the receiver and got every bit of what they paid for.

Cooper spent three-and-a-half years with the Raiders after being the fourth-overall pick in the 2015 .

Thanks to having Gallup and Wilson to turn to, the blow here may ultimately be more personal for Amari than a hit for the Cowboys. But nevertheless, it appears Dallas will be working without one of their best offensive tools for the next two games.

Do you proofread your posts? Is COVID-10 a new strain of the disease I haven’t heard of? Oh, and evidently Amari farts. Maybe if we all chip in for a package of Gas-X he could play?

Ha it’s good to see that someone other that myself post stuff that has Mistakes in it! Sometimes I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to proofread what I have written before I send it ! By the way if the boys EVER get the whole team healthy and playing together for a few games all I can say is WATCH OUT!!


Obviously not a good thing but WR position is probably our deepest and best position so hopefully this will not hurt much. Having MG back and the emergence of CW may fill this void. Let’s hope.

Did he test positive for this new covid 10 or was he just a close contact?? All I’ve heard is that he has been placed on the list and that’s it!! Nobody has said rather he has tested positive or if he was just a close contact!! Knowing which one it is will help us know if he’ll miss the Thanksgiving day game too or not!! And another thing that’ll help is…. Has he been vaccinated?? That’ll determine how fast he can make it back too!! So can somebody figure this out and give us an update??
