Amari Cooper Returns To Practice Thursday

Thursday, September 21, 7:47 PM

Cleveland Browns wide receiver Amari Cooper (groin, shoulder) was able to practice in a limited fashion on Thursday after being held out of Wednesday's session. Cooper was questionable to play on Monday night in the loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers due to a groin issue, but he suited up anyway and played well catching seven of 10 targets for 90 yards while playing over 70 percent of the offensive snaps. He may be a little beat up early in the year, but he should be able to suit up this Sunday at home against the Tennessee Titans, where he should continue to serve as quarterback Deshaun Watson's go-to target. The Browns could throw the ball a bit more moving forward, too, now that Nick Chubb (knee) is done for the season.

DeVonta Smith On The Week 3 Injury Report

Thursday, September 21, 7:35 PM

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith (hamstring, thigh) was included on the team's first injury report for Week 3 and was listed as a limited practice participant on Thursday. The fact that he's practicing at all in the first session of the week is a sign that his injury isn't serious, but it's something for fantasy managers to watch heading into the Week 3 game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Monday night. As long as the 24-year-old is able to play this week, he'll need to remain in all starting fantasy lineups. Smith has gotten off to a great start through two weeks in 2023, catching 11 of his 15 targets for 178 yards and two touchdowns against the New England Patriots and Minnesota Vikings.
