The injury in question happened during the second quarter during Oakland’s eventual 21-14 win over their division rival.
Cooper was running a slant pattern from the right side of the field and the ball was thrown high from Derek Carr when Broncos safety Darian Stewart arrived and hit Cooper in the neck and head area. Stewart was flagged for unnecessary roughness.
