The hit that knocked Amari Cooper unconscious, gave him a concussion and led to an ankle injury last Sunday will keep him out another week.

The Oakland Raiders have declared Cooper will be out for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Media.

In addition to Cooper being unavailable for this game, Oakland will be without its other starting wide receiver, Michael Crabtree. After an appeal this week, Crabtree’s two-game suspension for fighting with Aqib Talib was knocked down to one game.

Needless to say, the Raiders will look a bit different than usual on offense without these two starting receivers. Thankfully for the Raiders and their fans, the Giants are coming into this game with some issues of their own after Eli Manning was unceremoniously pushed to the sideline so that Geno Smith could play.

The Raiders and Broncos had one of the least entertaining games of last weekend, and it’s looking like fans in Oakland might once again be subject to a stinker.
