3 injured cowboys need to return to the field immediately
The Dallas Cowboys looked unlucky for the second time in three weeks, and even though they’re still 8-3, the team needs these guys to recover now.
In what was supposed to be a marquee game for Week 11, the Dallas Cowboys forgot to do their part against the Kansas City Chiefs. Dak Prescott played one of his worst matches in recent memory, the rest of the attack followed, and although the defense was good, it didn’t matter because they lost, 19-9.
Not all was lost to Dallas as they moved up to 7-3 on the season and remain firmly in control of the NFC East at this point. However, this team has become increasingly restless and cracks are starting to appear due to this fact, even if that was not the only reason for the loss on Sunday.
Simply put, the Cowboys need to be healthy, but, in particular, they can really use those three players in the squad.
Cowboys: 3 injured players Dallas needs to get back on the field quickly
3. Amari Cooper, WR
Talking about Amari Cooper is tough because we know why he’s out, and most urgently, when he’ll likely be able to get back on the field.
The Dallas Stars receiver missed the Week 11 game due to a positive COVID-19 test as well as the fact that he is not vaccinated. Because of the latter part of this, he’ll also be out of the Thanksgiving game against the Raiders. And based on what we saw against Kansas City on Sunday, that could be a bit problematic.
The offense was totally lost from start to finish against the Chiefs and it’s hard not to believe that Cooper wasn’t a big part of that. He’s a clear leader in that unit, helps protect, is ready to do the dirty work, and create teammates with the respect he commands from opposing defenses.
To make matters worse, CeeDee Lamb left losing the road on Sunday with a concussion. This is a tough spot for the Cowboys offense going forward, and as such, they should hope and pray to get Cooper back on the field as soon as possible. It is clear that this team would struggle – albeit to varying degrees – without him.
