Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper missed a couple of plays on the final drive of the game on Sunday due to a rib injury. As a result, his status for Week 3 will be a major question mark for the new few days.
On Tuesday, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked about Cooper’s status while on 105.3 The Fan. It’s pretty evident that it’s too early to tell if Cooper will be active on Sunday against the Philadelphia Eagles.
“I don’t know today,” Jones said. “I’m hopeful those ribs can get comfortable enough for him to play by the weekend, but I don’t know.”
This response from Jones coincides with what Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy told reporters on Monday afternoon.
“We’ll see Wednesday how he feels,” McCarthy said. “I would probably put it in the classification of bruised [ribs].”

Cooper has been very productive through the first two games of the season, hauling in 16 passes for 163 yards and two touchdowns.
With Michael Gallup already out of action due to a calf strain, the last thing Dallas really needs is for Cooper to miss an extended period of time. That would put a ton pressure on CeeDee Lamb to carry the receiving corps.
The Cowboys should have an update on Cooper after Wednesday’s practice.
