Cowboys Place Amari Cooper on COVID-19 List, Ruled Out for Sunday Against Chiefs

The Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper will not play on Sunday against the Chiefs as the franchise placed him on the COVID-19 list.

Cooper, 27, sits second on the team in receiving yards (583) and touchdowns (5) behind CeeDee Lamb, who has 726 yards and six touchdowns. The Cowboys were hoping to get their full slate of receivers on Sunday after getting Michael Gallup back last week.

With Cooper's absence, Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott will rely on Lamb, Gallup and Cedrick Wilson and Malik Turner—who caught two touchdowns against the Broncos two weeks ago—to make plays down the field.
