News of Cooper’s absence isn’t a surprise. He suffered a concussion and a sprained ankle on the same play during the Raiders’ 21-14 win over the Broncos last Sunday, thanks to a violent hit by Denver safety Darian Stewart. Cooper lost consciousness after the shot, before coming to and being helped off the field.
Stewart was fined $24,000 by the NFL for the hit on Cooper.
The Raiders will also not have Michael Crabtree for Sunday’s game against the Giants. Crabtree will be serving a one-game suspension handed out by the league for brawling with Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib.
