Amari Cooper to miss multiple Dallas Cowboys games, per report
Amari Cooper won’t be suiting up for the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. And the former Alabama wide receiver will be sitting out on Thanksgiving Day, too.
On Friday, Cooper was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which means he will be required to miss Sunday’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, he’s also going to miss Thursday’s matchup vs. the Las Vegas Raiders because he tested positive for COVID-19 and is unvaccinated, according to a report from ESPN’s Todd Archer.
Cooper will have to quarantine for a mandatory 10 days, but Archer reported that Cooper should clear protocols in time to return for Dallas’ Dec. 2 matchup against the New Orleans Saints.
Archer also noted that it’s not believed that the Cowboys currently have any other COVID-19 issues.
Cooper has 44 catches for 583 yards and 5 touchdowns in 9 games this year. He’s currently in his 7th NFL season and his 4th with the Cowboys.
