The Oakland Raiders are expecting wide receiver Amari Cooper to sit out on Sunday against the Dallas Cowboys due to an ankle injury.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal‘s Michael Gehlken, Cooper missed practice Wednesday and Thursday after he aggravated the injury in the Raiders’ 26-15 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 14.

This will be the second game the two-time Pro-Bowler has missed this season. He missed a week 13 matchup against the New York Giants after suffering a concussion and ankle injury on a hit from Broncos’ Darian Stewart the week before.

Thus far this season, Cooper has grabbed 42 catches on 86 targets for 499 yards and five touchdowns.

Expect Michael Crabtree, tight end Jared Cook, Seth Roberts and Cordarrelle Patterson to step up against the Cowboys’ 23rd-ranked passing defense on Sunday.

Kickoff for the Sunday night game at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum is set for 5:30pm PST.
