Michael Irvin, a former Cowboys legend, expressed displeasure at Amari Cooper’s decision not to get vaccinate. Irvin met TMZ reporters in New York City, and didn’t hesitate to share his thoughts when asked.
Irvin stated, “I’m absolutely crazy about it.” “Are you joking?! A guy I know makes $21 million sitting at home, not playing. It’s crazy.”
After Cooper was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 roster , the Dallas Cowboys were unable to play Cooper against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday. Cooper will be absent from the Cowboys’ Thanksgiving Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders as he is not vaccinated. He must be out of the game for at least ten days per NFL protocol.
Cooper would need to only return two negative COVID-19 tests if he was vaccinated.
Irvin stated that you must try to minimize any issues that could affect your game or the Super Bowl. COVID is just one example. To try and mitigate the issue, you should get vaccinated.
Cooper has 44 receptions for 583 yards and five touchdowns this season. He is second in yards, touchdowns, targets, receptions, and touchdowns to CeeDee Lamb.
Due to COVID-19 protocols, Cooper is not the only one out . The Cowboys’ assistant strength and conditioning coach Cedric Smoak, and wide receivers Robert Foster as well as TJ Vaher will also be available for Thanksgiving.
Dallas holds a stronghold on the division thanks to their 7-3 record, but the 5-5 Raiders want every win possible.
Jerry Jones , Cowboys owner, commented about Amari Cooper’s decision not to get vaccinated Tuesday morning. He pointed out the negative effects that not being vaccinated can have for a team.
Jones stated via Jon Machota, The Athletic. This is a classic example of how it can affect a team. Individually, you can’t win anything. This is what popped us. We were able to see the light.
