The Dallas Cowboys officially activated the receiver from the reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, and he's listed as questionable for Thursday Night Football.
Cooper, who is unvaccinated, missed the past two games -- both Cowboys losses -- after testing positive for COVID-19.
While Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was optimistic Cooper would return this week, coach Mike McCarthy threw cold water on the assumption the star wideout would be back, saying Tuesday that Cooper was "still not feeling the best." In the end, Jones ended up being right.
The anticipated return of Cooper is a big boon for a flagging Cowboys offense. With CeeDee Lamb, who missed last week with a concussion, also expected back, the Dallas passing offense should be a near full-force against the Saints.
