Last month, the Cowboys lost Amari Cooper to a first-quarter injury at MetLife Stadium, a key development in an upset loss to the New York Jets. They avoided a similar fate Monday evening. Cooper not only returned from his knee issue but scored a 45-yard touchdown late, helping to close out the New York Giants in a 37-18 win.
Cooper said via the story that nothing was going to keep him out this time. He added he aggravated the injury during the practice week and left early on Thursday. But there was no MRI or missed practices and he didn't appear on the injury report. It's something to monitor going forward and Cooper may miss some practice time this week as a result.
