Raiders rule out Amari Cooper

All signs this week pointed to the Raiders being without wide receiver Amari Cooper for Sunday’s game against the Giants and the team confirmed that will be the case on Friday.

Cooper has been ruled out for the game as a result of the concussion and ankle injury he sustained in last Sunday’s victory over the Broncos. Cooper left the game after a big shot from Broncos safety Darian Stewart that earned Stewart a $24,308 fine from the league despite Cooper’s coach Jack Del Rio saying that Cooper ducked his head into the hit.

Cooper’s absence leaves the Raiders without their top two wideouts as Michael Crabtree will be serving a one-game suspension. Adding to their list of worries at the position is Cordarrelle Patterson, who was listed as questionable to play due to a hip issue. Patterson has been limited in practice this week.

Cornerback David Amerson and right guard Gabe Jackson are also listed as questionable for Oakland, which can move to 6-6 with a win. That will be enough to keep them in arm’s length of the Chiefs if the Chiefs win or leave both teams with the same record if they win while the Chiefs lose.

  1. Genoa will get hurt the first series and it will go something like this ,,,,,,,Geno drops back around his own 28 yard line reads his professions nobody is open ,,protection is breaking up fast he pulls it down runs to his left headed for the sideline with a gain of around 5 yards as he turns around to go back to the huddle he pulls up lame ,,,bet the house !

    theyll be fine. crabtree is better at moving the chains anyways
    You realize Crabtree won’t be moving the chains cause he’s suspended. Raiders only hope is NYG have already packed it in and provide little effort.

  3. Big Blue’s wideouts have a combined total of fourteen (14) TDs through 12 games.
    Raider’s wideout depth chart has a combined total of seventeen (17) TDs.

  4. Watch for more 2 TE sets by the Raiders. The Giants are horrible covering TEs,. Hope that Seth Roberts quits dropping balls and Holton stretches the field. Add a strong run game with short passes to the RBs and the Raiders should pull this off. Now that I wrote the blueprint, Todd Downing will go 180 degrees from it and find a way to almost lose this game.

    I’d like to see the Jill’s lose another 4 straight SBs, The streak will continue

  8. 10 SB appearances between the Raiders and Giants and they are both a shell of their former greatness. The Raiders haven’t had a winning season in almost 15 years. The Giants just benched a 2X SB champion.

  9. Remember when the Bills were good? I know, it’s been awhile. But I do remember them losing 4 superbowls in short order. At least they still have that one they won right? Nope, they don’t have any rings. But the Bills sure do appear on a whole of other teams rings as the biat_s who lost to the champs. Good times.
