Amari Cooper Expected To Play On Sunday
According to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport, Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper is likely to play today in Kansas City.
Cooper is believed to be dealing with a high ankle sprain and a report on Friday indicated he would be unavailable this week. Later on Friday, Cooper practiced for the first time since injuring his ankle and now it appears he is well enough to play.
#Raiders WR Amari Cooper (ankle), listed as questionable, has impressed his team with how quickly he improved late in the week. Source said he's got a good chance to play vs. #Chiefs, though he'll test it early.

In his first meeting with Kansas City this season, Cooper stuffed the stat sheet with 11 receptions for 210 yards and two touchdowns.
With cornerback Marcus Peters (suspended) out for Kansas City, an already shaky Chiefs defense gets another unexpected headache if Cooper is able to play.
