Raiders WR Amari Cooper ruled out Sunday vs. Giants

The Raiders have ruled Amari Cooper out of Sunday’s home game vs. the Giants, leaving Oakland without its top two wide receivers this weekend.

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.
