FF Today's Take:We wish him the best. Chiefs ESPN Nation reporter Adam Teicher tweeted earlier in the day that a MRI "showed a mass in his chest" and that while there has been no definite diagnosis, Kansas City thinks he has lymphoma. From a football perspective, the Chiefs may have to reinsert Marcus Cooper as a starting corner after moving Ron Parker from safety a few weeks ago.
Cooper, De'Anthony Thomas injured at practice-- Thu Sep 4 12:30 pm --
Chiefs may be without starting corner and key returner
The Chiefs could be without two key players in Sunday’s season opener against the Tennessee Titans.
Starting cornerback Marcus Cooper suffered an ankle injury and rookie running back/punt returner De’Anthony Thomas strained a hamstring late in Wednesday’s practice, coach Andy Reid said on Thursday morning.
Neither player was expected to practice on Thursday.(Kansas City Star)
FF Today's Take:The Chiefs have had a slew of injury issues this preseason and can't afford to lose yet another key piece in the secondary. If Cooper is out, there may be some hidden gems for fantasy owners in the Titans passing game this week. Kendall Wright, Nate Washington and Justin Hunter would get a bump in value.
