LP Cruz, with Blogging With the Boyz, considered Cooks’ injury as a surprise, as the Cowboys did not report the injury after their Week 1 blowout of the New York Giants:
“Wide receiver Brandin Cooks was a surprise DNP as he was withheld from practice with a knee injury. This is a surprise considering the Cowboys didn’t have any new injuries to report following their game against the New York Giants.”
Cooks didn’t have a major role in the Cowboys’ 40-0 win over the Giants. But he and the passing game weren’t needed after the Cowboys scored their first two touchdowns on defense and special teams. Cooks finished the game as the Cowboys second-leading receiver with 22 yards on two catches.
The Cowboys might need Cooks to have a larger role in the offense against an elite New York Jets defense with Sauce Gardner in the secondary.
