New Cowboy Cooper starts working with Prescott
3:19 PM ET
FRISCO, Texas — Amari Cooper is one practice in with the Dallas Cowboys, albeit a quick one lasting about an hour, and he’ll be spending the team’s bye week trying to learn the offense instead of getting to know his new city.
The Cowboys will have a brief practice Thursday and will not get back to a full practice until Nov. 1 as they prepare for the Nov. 5 game against the Titans on Monday Night Football. Cooper and quarterback Dak Prescott said they will get together on their own to go over the offense.
“I’ve been playing football all my life. You just have to be a good learner, and I think I’m that,” Cooper said two days after the Cowboys gave up a 2019 first-round pick to the Oakland Raiders for the receiver. “I’m already adjusting and picking up the system pretty well.”

Cooper said he and Prescott got in some work during Wednesday’s practice, including a couple of reps in the 11-on-11 periods
“I really like the way he throws the ball,” Cooper said. “It’s a good ball.”
