Receiver Amari Cooper left the game on the Cowboys’ final drive, missing two plays. Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Cooper is dealing with a rib injury.

“We’ll see Wednesday how he feels,” McCarthy said, via Rob Phillips of the team website. “I would probably put it in the classification of bruised (ribs).”

The Cowboys have an extra day this week, with their home opener on Monday night against the Eagles.

Cooper caught three passes for 24 yards Sunday and has a league-high 16 receptions for 163 yards and two touchdowns through two games.

McCarthy said starting defensive tackle Carlos Watkins (knee) and defensive end Dorance Armstrong (ankle) are dealing with injuries from Sunday.

The Cowboys will see the return of defensive end Randy Gregory on Wednesday. He has spent more than a week on the COVID-19 reserve list after testing positive for the virus despite being vaccinated.

  1. Rib injuries are extremely painful. It hurts to breathe, sneeze, laugh, cough, and you can’t sleep on them either. So let’s stop sitting in our lounge chairs and mocking these players just because their bones aren’t broken & they didn’t need surgery.

  2. There are at least 15 QBs that would play through this without even mentioning it. They might grab a flack jacket for the next game, but wouldn’t Diva Out. Too many talented WRs in Dallas for this primadonna to not show himself to the door or backup role. DaVante Adams would eat this guy for lunch and then eat his lunch. SMH.
