Lost in all the madness of the Dallas Cowboys losing back-to-back games was the fact that Pro Bowl wideout Amari Cooper suffered a knee injury.

Dallas remains in first place in the NFC East, but the issue with the historic franchise is that it hasn't beaten a team over .500 this season. That trend continued on Thanksgiving against the Buffalo Bills.

In the fourth quarter of yesterday's game, Cooper took a direct hit to his left knee. It didn't look great upon first glance, but the latest update on him is quite encouraging.

According to Cowboys reporter Todd Archer, the MRI results for Cooper did not show any structural damage to his knee.

Cooper's status for next week's game against the Chicago Bears is unknown at the moment.

It's been a productive season for Cooper, who has 64 receptions for 971 yards and seven touchdowns. However, the talented wide receiver has dealt with a plethora of injuries.

The Cowboys are trying to hold off the Philadelphia Eagles from winning the NFC East, but that task will be much tougher if Cooper does miss any period of time.

Since the next game for Dallas falls on a Thursday again, the team should have an update on Cooper in the coming days.
