The Dallas Cowboys are looking to get healthy in order to compete with the top NFL teams down the final stretch of the 2021-22 season. They have been without wide receiver Amari Cooper for the last two games due to COVID-19 issues and his status remains up in the air for Week 13.

The Cowboys are reeling, having dropped three of their last four games. This is an offense that prides itself on a dangerous passing attack and it only makes sense that Dallas fans are anxiously awaiting the return of their Pro Bowl WR.
