Dak Prescott, the Dallas Cowboys’ quarterback, commented on teammate Amari cooper not being available for Sunday’s game and his vaccination status. In their 19-9 defeat to the Kansas City Chiefs, Cooper was not with them. Cooper must wait at least ten days following his positive COVID-19 testing because he is not vaccinated.
“Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott stood by Amari Cooper, wide receiver,” said Michael Gehlken of Dallas Morning News on Twitter.
“That’s my teammate. Prescott stated, “That’s my brother.” “I will continue to support him and back him. This is everyone’s decision.
Dak Prescott is not disappointed about Amari Cooper being unvaccinated. Dak defended Amari, said even though he is vaccinated he could still miss two games if he got COVID-19.
“That’s my teammate. That’s my brother. I will continue to support him.”

After the Cowboys failed to score a touchdown this season, Prescott defends his receiver. Cooper’s absence was evident, even though the offense struggled to make any meaningful progress. CeeDee Lamb, wide receiver, was also absent at halftime due to a head injury.
As the Chiefs scored just three points in halftime, the Cowboys were without their primary receivers.
Prescott’s comments seem to confirm what many Cowboys players already stated this season about team chemistry. This season, the Cowboys are emphasizing team and trying to be one of the best teams in the NFL.
The Cowboys will be playing the Las Vegas Raiders in a traditional Thanksgiving game on Thursday. Cooper will likely be available for at least the matchup, as it takes place during his mandatory 10-day quarantine period. This will be Cooper’s first misses in a back-to-back game.
Cooper’s health is also under question for the Cowboys’ game against New Orleans Saints. Cooper’s status is also in question for the Cowboys’ Thursday night football game. If Cooper does not get cleared by that time, Cooper will continue to be absent.
Cooper is once again one of quarterback Dak Prescott’s most favorite targets this season. Since arriving in Dallas via trade, Cooper has been a staple wide receiver. He has 44 catches for 583 yards and five touchdowns this year. Prescott has been more successful than CeeDee Lamb so far.
Dallas will now be able to turn to Lamb and the recently returned Michael Gallup over the next two weeks. Cedric Wilson should be the third wide receiver, while Cooper is still out of action.
