Amari Cooper (ankle) is expected to miss Week 15.

Cooper remained sidelined at Thursday's practice. It's hard to see how he suits up after aggravating his injury last Sunday against the Chiefs. A lost season is ending in lost fashion for the disappointing third-year pro.
Dec 14 - 2:48 PM

Amari Cooper (ankle) is not practicing Wednesday.

Cooper played 14 snaps last week against the Chiefs before aggravating his ankle issue. The Raiders were aggressive to play him through the high-ankle sprain. Cooper is unlikely to be a factor the rest of the fantasy season.
Dec 13 - 2:59 PM

Amari Cooper left Sunday's Week 14 game against the Chiefs after aggravating his left ankle injury.

Cooper entered the game listed as questionable with an injury to the same ankle. He aggravated it on a blocking play, getting the ankle rolled up before a pileup, and was down on the ground for several minutes. He was quickly ruled out.
Dec 10 - 2:09 PM

Amari Cooper is officially active for Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Listed as questionable with an ankle injury, Cooper wasn't even worked out by medical staff before the game, suggesting there was never any doubt about his availability for the team. His return will push Johnny Holton and Cordarrelle Patterson back to the bench. Cooper remains a risky WR3 option.
Dec 10 - 11:28 AM

NFL Network's James Palmer reports Amari Cooper (questionable, ankle) will play Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Cooper made a quicker than expected recovery from a high-ankle sprain, returning to practice on Friday and apparently showing enough to get the green light. He's expected to be on a snap count against the team he ripped for a career-best 210 yards back in Week 7. Oakland's receiving corps will be at full strength this week with Cooper healthy and Michael Crabtree back from a one-game suspension.
Dec 10 - 11:12 AM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports Amari Cooper (ankle, questionable) will be on a "pitch count" if he plays Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Cooper is shaping up as a true game-time decision. Luckily, the game kicks off at 1 p.m. ET, so Cooper's status will be known before lineups locks. Even on a pitch count, Cooper will be worth a dart throw for upside-seeking underdogs in the first week of the fantasy playoffs if he suits up. Cooper went for 11/210/2 when he faced the Chiefs in Week 7.
Dec 10 - 8:29 AM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports the Raiders are "holding out hope" Amari Cooper (questionable, ankle) plays in Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Cooper looked good on limited practice reps Friday, giving him a chance to play this week. It sounds like he'll come down to a game-time decision. Cooper has a plus matchup against the Chiefs, but would be a risky play at less than 100 percent.

Amari Cooper (ankle) is questionable for Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Out of nowhere, Cooper, who had been trending towards missing his second straight game, was able to get in a limited practice on Friday. His status is truly up in the air for Sunday's 1 PM ET start. He'll have an inviting matchup if he suits up, particularly with Marcus Peters serving a team-imposed one-game suspension.
Dec 8 - 3:20 PM

Amari Cooper (ankle) was present for the start of Friday's practice.

It's the first time we've seen Cooper on the practice field since suffering a concussion and a high-ankle sprain against the Broncos in Week 12. Cooper has already cleared the concussion protocol so it's just his ankle that's bothering him. Perhaps he'll draw the questionable tag, but we'd still be surprised if Cooper suits up Sunday at Kansas City.
Dec 8 - 2:34 PM

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports Amari Cooper (ankle) is not expected to play Week 14 against the Chiefs.

Cooper hasn't practiced at all this week. The concussion is no longer the issue, but Cooper is believed to have a high-ankle sprain. Michael Crabtree is in a smash spot against the Marcus Peters-less Chiefs defense.
Dec 8 - 11:43 AM

Amari Cooper (ankle) missed Thursday's practice.

Cooper has cleared the concussion protocol, but it appears his ankle will hold him out for the second consecutive game. That would suggest he's dealing with a "high" sprain. Seth Roberts, Cordarrelle Patterson and Johnny Holton will mix and match behind Michael Crabtree against the Chiefs' awful defense.
Dec 7 - 2:46 PM

Amari Cooper has cleared the concussion protocol.

Cooper has recovered from the concussion he suffered in Week 12 but is still working back from a sprained ankle. He was absent on Wednesday and will need to get in at least a limited practice by Friday in order to play Sunday at Kansas City. If he sits, it would open up targets for Michael Crabtree, who is returning from a one-game suspension.
Dec 6 - 7:11 PM

Amari Cooper (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday.

Cooper was removed from the concussion protocol after sitting out last week. He's hoping to return Sunday, but needs to get in at least one practice. Cooper's status will be updated Thursday.
Dec 6 - 5:06 PM

Amari Cooper remains in the league's concussion protocol.

Per beat writer Michael Gehlken, Cooper is also still "nursing" his left ankle injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported Monday that Cooper was "hopeful" he would return Week 14, but that's not looking particularly likely. It's a shame, as the Raiders' passing attack has a mouthwatering matchup in a pathetic Chiefs defense that just got ripped to shreds by Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse. Cooper's status will be updated on Wednesday.
