Updating previous reports, Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (foot) is dealing with an intrinsic muscle strain in his foot as opposed to plantar fasciitis, according to Mickey Spagnola of the team's website.
Huddle Up: The foot's intrinsic muscles stabilize the foot much like the core muscles in a person's spine stabilizes and protects the spine. Neither the team nor Cooper seem overly concerned about the injury, so fantasy owners can probably breathe easy ... for now. Nevertheless, expect Cooper to get rest days and be a regular on the injury report this season.

Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday, Aug. 13, he's willing to continue contract negotiations with QB Dak Prescott, RB Ezekiel Elliott and WR Amari Cooper in the regular season.
Huddle Up: This is least promising for Elliott, who has said he won't play this season without a new deal. With Jerry apparently willing to play hardball, drafting the elite running back won't be for the faint of heart.

Dallas Cowboys WR Amari Cooper says he's not a top-five NFL receiver -- at the moment. 'It's something I think I can prove this year, not sure if I've proved it yet, but I plan on doing it this year,' Cooper told USA Today Sports' Trysta Krick. 'I think I definitely have the mentality and skill set to be a top-five receiver, that's no doubt. But have I proven it? I don't know. I really want to set out and prove it.'
Huddle Up: Cooper averaged 5.9 receptions and 80.6 yards and scored six TDs in his nine games with the Cowboys last season, and while he's not expected to be a top-five wideout in fantasy, he is a borderline WR1.
