Report: Amari Cooper Likely out for the Rest of the Preseason

Dallas Cowboys Wide Receiver Amari Cooper is likely out for the remainder of the preseason according to ESPN’s Todd Archer. He is currently dealing with a form of plantar fasciitis that has kept him out of practice since August 6th.

The three-time pro bowler changed life in Dallas last season as the team went 7-2 in it’s final nine games after he was acquired to win the NFC East. Cooper isn’t worried about any long term effects, though, as this is something he’s familiar with.

“I’m not worried about it at all, because I know if it does linger, it doesn’t matter,” Cooper said. “I had 1,000 yards when I played on plantar fasciitis before.”

The Cowboys host the Houston Texans this Saturday in what is known as the “dress rehearsal” game before the regular season. Starters normally play about a half of football to get the juices flowing for when games really count in September. Ideally, the plan would be for Cooper and Dak Prescott to get a rhythm of sorts before the season starts but that will have to wait until the team prepares to take on the New York Giants on September 8th.

However, the good thing here is this issue doesn’t seem to be serious and Cooper will be ready for the start of the 2019 season.
