Eagles WR Riley Cooper fractures collarbone

The Philadelphia Eagles are going to be without wide receiver Riley Cooper @RileyCooper_14 until at least the start of the regular season. That's because the third-year pro suffered a fractured left collarbone during Saturday's practice. The incident occurred when Cooper went up for a deep pass and came down hard.
"I think it's a bump in the road," Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said. "[Cooper will] recover from it. He's had a good offseason and because he's had that offseason he's gotten a lot of reps ... and gotten stronger and got more knowledge of our system and that will benefit him when he's ready to come back."
Cooper caught 16 passes for 315 yards whille playing in all 16 games last season.

Fantasy Analysis:

No official timetable has been set for Cooper, but he's probably going to be out for six weeks.
Cooper had a few nice games in the middle of last season while Jeremy Maclin was out of the lineup. But with Maclin healthy, and DeSean Jackson seemingly ready to act more like a winner than a whiner this year, Cooper is an afterthought for fantasy owners. Sixth-round rookie Marvin McNutt @McNutt7wr now looks to have the inside track on becoming the Eagles' No. 4 WR behind Jason Avant.
