Amari Cooper could desperately use an extra week of rest before the start with all the injuries that he has faced this season, but the Dallas Cowboys star insists he does do not want it.
Cooper retired early in the New York Jets ‘defeat in the Cowboys’ loss last week with a quad injury, and it was reported that he was suffering a lot and that he had been injured. he could barely walk on Monday. He did not practice this week, but the veteran receiver said Thursday that he wanted to play against the Philadelphia Eagles Sunday night and that he was preparing accordingly.

The Cowboys have lost three straight games and are extremely injured on offense. They missed fellow newcomer Randall Cobb last week, in addition to offensive linemen Tyron Smith and La’El Collins, and it was an important factor in the loss. With an extremely important division game this weekend, it’s not surprising that Cooper is doing everything in his power to get to the field.
If the bruise at Cooper is just a pain management problem, it would not be wise to bet against him. He already has a huge year with 33 catches for 515 yards and five touchdowns, and this production has been achieved despite other injuries he has been forced to undergo. With an imminent bye in the eighth week, he could choose to do it again on Sunday.
