Amari Cooper returns to practice Friday, will play Week 15 vs. Ravens

We break down the news that Amari Cooper has a core muscle injury. What it means for Week 15 and beyond.

Thursday update: Cooper was able to practice on Thursday and has been removed from the injury report. He likely isn’t 100% with his core muscle injury, but he will play.

The Cleveland Browns have yet to have wide receiver Amari Cooper as a participant in practice this week. He was on a bike on Wednesday, per Mary Kay Cabot. And he was listed as not participating on Tuesday on their estimated practice report. He’s listed as dealing with a hip injury, but the injury is a core muscle injury.

Cooper did say that he will need to manage the core muscle injury, but believes he will play on Saturday against the Ravens. It sounds like he might not be 100% for this matchup.

Fantasy football implications for Week 15

If Cooper can’t go, Donoan Peoples-Jones, who has played well of late, would be the lead receiver along with tight end David Njoku.
