The Dallas Cowboys are reeling following their 26-15 loss to the Buffalo Bills today. Unfortunately, it looks like things could very well get worse before they get better.

Cowboys star wide receiver Amari Cooper suffered a knee injury in the fourth quarter. But the Cowboys are going to have to hope that it isn't as bad as it looked.

They'll find out soon enough though. According to Jane Slater of NFL Network, Cooper is scheduled to get an X-ray on his knee tomorrow.

Judging by the hit and the look on Cooper's hit after the impact, it certainly doesn't look good.

Cooper had eight receptions for 85 yards - leading the team in both categories - in the loss to Buffalo.

But as much as Dallas may be struggling against the NFL's elite right now, things won't get any easier if Cooper isn't 100-percent in the weeks to come. Or if he has to miss any games at all.

The Cowboys don't even get the benefit of an extended week to rest and recover. Their next game will be in exactly one week when they take on the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.

Can the Cowboys even win the necessary games to win the division without Cooper in the lineup?
