Status murky for Week 3
Cowboys president Jerry Jones expressed uncertainty about Cooper's (rib) availability for Monday's game against the Eagles, but he's "hopeful" the star wideout will be ready to play in the Week 3 matchup, Todd Archer of ESPN.com reports. "I don't know today. I'm hopeful those ribs can get comfortable enough for him to play by the weekend, but I don't know," Jones said Tuesday during his radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan Dallas.
Cooper came away from this past weekend's 20-17 win over the Chargers with a bruised rib, though the injury didn't prevent him from playing all but two of the Cowboys' 60 offensive snaps. According to Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News, head coach Mike McCarthy said Cooper's injury originated from the Cowboys' season-opening loss to the Buccaneers, so the wideout's status for Week 3 may ultimately come down to a matter of pain tolerance. Even if Cooper suits up for the Cowboys' first divisional game, he'll likely have his practice reps managed to some extent Thursday through Saturday.
