After missing the first five games as he recovered from a broken collarbone, Riley Cooper made a strong return to the lineup. The wide receiver had become one of the Eagles' best special teams performers last season and made his first mark Sunday when he delivered a key block on Boykin's first kick return - a 30-yarder that was his longest of the season at that point.
Cooper was also the fourth receiver when the Eagles split that many wide, replacing Damaris Johnson. Cooper finished with two catches for 18 yards.
Cooper would be a replacement for DeSean Jackson or Jeremy Maclin if they weren't able to play, which would keep Jason Avant in the slot.
