Rostering a player in your Fantasy lineup dealing with an injury always comes with some risk, so don't make the final call until you see what SportsLine NFL injury analyst Dr. Brandon Bowers has to say.
Dr. Bowers, a Doctor of Physical Therapy currently practicing in the outpatient orthopedic setting on northeast side of Columbus, Ohio, completed his undergraduate work at Siena Heights University. He earned his doctorate in physical therapy from the University of Toledo.
He is currently employed by Athletico Physical Therapy and treats a high volume of high school and collegiate athletes in the clinical setting. He's worked previously for a host of different websites serving as an injury analyst, publishing weekly columns, appearing on podcasts and radio shows to provide injury content.
He's broken down some of the most notable injuries heading into Week 1 and we can tell you he isn't concerned about Cowboys WR Amari Cooper's foot injury heading into Sunday's showdown against the Giants.
"Cooper appears to have made his recent foot injury a thing of the past ? at least for now," Dr. Bowers said. "Cooper was able to practice on Monday without pain and followed that up with full participation in practice for the Cowboys on Wednesday and Thursday. The nature of his most recent injury was deemed muscular in nature and barring any setback he is on track to play in Week 1 against the Giants."
Dr. Bowers is also breaking down what challenges Stefon Diggs (hamstring) and Devin Funchess (back) face in Week 1, and has an in-depth look at Ezekiel Elliott's injury risk after missing all of Dallas' training camp.
