The Philadelphia Eagles suffered a blow today as wide receiver Riley Cooper went down with a fractured left collarbone.
Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported the news. Cooper will be on the shelf for some time but reports were the club isn’t planning to make a move at the position, not immediately anyway.
Cooper played in all 16 games last season and 16 catches for 315 yards for an average of 19.7 with one touchdown. He was perhaps more valuable to the club on special teams and that is where his loss could be felt most.
There is no timetable yet for a return for the third-year player from Florida.
