Could Amari Cooper’s injury be more than we’ve heard?
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Amari Cooper has been dealing with a heel bruise for over a week now, we didn’t see him in the preseason game at San Francisco for this reason (he might not have played if totally healthy, to be fair).
Jason Garrett continues to update Cooper’s status as “day-by-day”; like all bruises, a heel bruise theoretically takes time to heal (no pun intended).
What if it’s more than a heel bruise, though? Could that be why he’s been sidelined for so long (it hasn’t been that long). Appearing on 105.3 The Fan on Tuesday morning, the mothership’s Mickey Spagnola reported that it was “more of a ligament thing.”
#Cowboys insider Mickey Spagnola - @spags52 tells @1053SS and I on @1053thefan that the Amari Cooper heel injury is “more of a ligament thing” than a bruise. That’s concerning.
