Dallas Cowboys have placed wide receiver Amari Cooper on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list.

He will not play Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs and might not be available for the Thanksgiving Day game against the Las Vegas Raiders on Nov. 25.

If vaccinated, Cooper will need two negative test results 24 hours apart to be activated before a 10-day quarantine period is up.

Without Cooper, the Cowboys and quarterback Dak Prescott will lean on CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Cedrick Wilson at receiver. Noah Brown and Malik Turner are the top reserves.

The loss of Cooper will be huge for a Cowboys offense in what is expected to be a shootout against the Chiefs.

Cooper was second on the team with 44 catches for 583 yards and five touchdowns this season.
