Raiders WR Cooper leaves with leg injury

The Kansas City Chiefs dominated the Oakland Raiders for three quarters on the way to a 26-15 victory Sunday.

Cooper was blocking on an outside run by DeAndre Washington when the ball carrier and a tackler rolled up on the wide receiver from behind. If video of the sequence doesn't do Cooper's discomfort justice, audio certainly will.

Cooper re-joins the lineup along with Michael Crabtree, who is returning from a one-game suspension.

However, the Raiders have more 20-plus yards than any other team in the National Football League since the beginning of 2016 and fans must remember that quarterback Derek Carr has full autonomy at the line of scrimmage this year to check into plays that will be more effective against the defensive set he sees.

Travis Kelce caught 7-of-13 targets for 74 yards in the Chiefs' Week 14 win over the Raiders.

Of course, Cooper isn't the only player on his team who's disappointed this season. He missed last week's win over the Giants with a concussion and a sprained ankle, but cleared the NFL's concussion protocol Wednesday and practiced on a limited basis Friday.

Needless to say, Oakland can ill afford to lose Cooper at this point in the season.
