It appears the Cowboys’ wide receiver room will be at full strength for Thursday’s game against the Saints. Amari Cooper has been activated from the Covid-19 list, reports Jane Slater of the NFL Network (via Twitter).
After playing in each of the first ten games of the season, Cooper missed the last two contests – part of the mandatory ten-day isolation period for unvaccinated players. In his absence, Dallas lost to the Chiefs in Week 11 and to Cooper’s former franchise, the Raiders, on Thanksgiving. Cooper’s positive test was one of several that have since been documented throughout the Cowboys organization.
Fellow starting wideout CeeDee Lamb also missed that Thanksgiving matchup, but he is expected to play against the Saints. With Michael Gallup also back from a lengthy IR stint, the Cowboys’ passing attack has the potential to return to its explosive self.
Cooper has registered 44 catches for 583 yards and five touchdowns this season. Having lost three of their last four games, the Cowboys will look to get back on track against the struggling Saints.
