Redskins TE Chris Cooley expects to have to manage pain all season in his surgically repaired knee, but he plans on participating in practices during the week.
He takes pride in his durability, having rarely missed a practice in more than five seasons before he broke his leg during a game in 2009.
Cooley is ranked down our list at 29, but he's getting attention in drafts with an ADP of the 14th round. Playing with pain is a sign to look in another direction for a backup TE. He's most likely going to miss time at some point this season.
