Receiver Amari Cooper left the game on the Cowboys’ last ride, missing two games. Coach Mike McCarthy said Monday that Cooper is dealing with a rib injury.

“We’ll see on Wednesday how he feels,” McCarthy said via Rob Phillips from the team’s website. “I would probably put it in the classification of bruises (ribs).”

The Cowboys have an extra day this week, with their opening at home Monday night against the Eagles.

Cooper caught three passes for 24 yards Sunday and has a league-high 16 receptions for 163 yards and two touchdowns through two games.

McCarthy said starting defensive tackle Carlos Watkins (knee) and defensive end Dorance Armstrong (ankle) are dealing with injuries from Sunday.

The Cowboys will see defensive end Randy Gregory return on Wednesday. He has spent more than a week on the COVID-19 reserve list after testing positive for the virus despite being vaccinated.
