Dallas Cowboys place WR Amari Cooper on COVID-19 reserve, will miss Week 11 vs. Kansas City Chiefs

The Dallas Cowboys placed wide receiver Amari Cooper on the COVID-19 reserve list, knocking him out of Sunday’s Week 11 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Since the Cowboys play on Thanksgiving against the Las Vegas Raiders, Cooper’s status for Week 12 is in question, as well.

Cowboys wide receiver Michael Gallup was activated off of injured reserve last week and caught three passes for 42 yards in 53 percent of offensive snaps. Gallup’s usage is expected to rise with Cooper up.

Starting wide receiver CeeDee Lamb and tight end Dalton Schultz also could see their targets increase for as long as Cooper is out. Cedrick Wilson will serve as Dallas’ third receiver. Noah Brown, Simi Fehoko and Malik Turner fill out the Cowboys’ wide receiver depth chart.
