Cowboys WR Amari Cooper: 'Everything is OK' with Knee; Plans on Playing vs. Vikings

Mike Fisher

FRISCO - Amari Cooper has received the results of the MRI on his knee and while he tells reporters he doesn't fully understand all of the medical jargon, the Dallas Cowboys star receiver adds to that "Everything is OK'' and that he plans on playing Sunday against the visiting Minnesota Vikings.

Cooper has contended all week that his knee is "fine,'' and that physically he plans on being a "10'' by the time Sunday night arrives. In the meantime, the MRI apparently revealed nothing more than a knee bruise, and Cooper's plan is to attempt to participate in practice on Friday here inside The Star.

After Cooper's TD contribution in Monday's 37-18 win, the Pro Bowler pledged to be healthy in time for the showdown between the 5-3 Cowboys and 6-3 Vikings. But first, he met with team doctors and sat out practice Thursday.

The Cowboys came into Thursday listing him as "limited'' and hopefully—as he has with recent problems with his foot, ankle and quad—he'll overcome this setback, too.

"Manageable'' is the word Cooper used with reporters to describe his plans for the knee.
