    Getty Cowboys QB Cooper Rush Cooper Rush’s biggest fan inside The Star, it turns out, is the man who cuts his checks. There is a reason Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones re-signed the former undrafted quarterback after he briefly defected to the rival Giants in 2020. The same reason Rush, following last week’s two-touchdown effort, has entered the conversation to become Dallas’ full-time backup behind Dak Prescott. And why he’s now at the center of that conversation, slated to start Sunday’s preseason finale against Jacksonville. “It’s great though to have a quarterback, for instance in Cooper Rush, that understands the game,” Jones said Tuesday on 105.3 The Fan, via the official Cowboys website. Jerry’s name-drop is no insignificant footnote. If Rush were to cement the QB2 job, improbably vanquishing Garrett Gilbert, and if something were to happen to Prescott (again), the organization would feel comfortable leaning on the 27-year-old’s laurels. Cuckoo for Cooper? “We can do everything. We can do our complete portfolio as far as our offense is concerned with Cooper Rush,” Jones said. “He’s a...
    Getty DeMarcus Lawrence DeMarcus Lawrence is a step closer. The star Dallas Cowboys defensive end was removed from the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list on Tuesday after passing his latest physical, the team announced. “Lawrence has continued to count toward the 90-man roster limit because of the Active/PUP designation,” noted the official Cowboys website. “Now he’s eligible to return to practice here in Oxnard.” Lawrence underwent a clean-up procedure on his back earlier this offseason. He was sent to the PUP list at the onset of training camp last month. Shortly after, Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones predicted Lawrence — along with starting wide receiver Amari Cooper (PUP, ankle) — would return following the club’s Aug. 13 preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals. “I bet it’s after Arizona,” Jones said on July 27, via The Athletic’s Jon Machota. “We’ll get some game activity, I think, out of [the players on PUP].” ESPN’s Todd Archer added that Jones expects Lawrence and Cooper to gain “at least a little game action” during the exhibition period prior to Dallas’ regular-season...
    Getty Amari Cooper That Amari Cooper remains on the Physically Unable to Perform list is of little concern to Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy. Speaking Sunday, McCarthy updated the status of the team’s $100 million wide receiver, who’s progressing well in his return from offseason ankle surgery. “Amari, he looks great,” he said, via the official Cowboys website. “Everything’s been extremely positive from the strength staff. I know him and (athletic trainers) Britt (Brown) and Jim (Maurer) were trying to talk about a potential timeline of when he thinks he’ll come off of PUP. We’re still working through that. His weight is as low as it’s been since I’ve worked with him. He looks great.” The latest Dallas Cowboys news straight to your inbox! Join the Heavy on Cowboys newsletter here!

    Getty Amari Cooper Jerry Jones the doctor reacted to Jerry Jones the general manager’s decision to place Dallas Cowboys star wide receiver Amari Cooper on the Physically Unable to Perform (PUP) list at the onset of training camp. Holding court with reporters, Jones revealed following Sunday’s practice that Cooper — along with defensive end DeMarcus Lawrence (PUP, back) — is unlikely to return before the team’s Aug. 13 preseason game against the Arizona Cardinals. “I bet it’s after Arizona,” he said, via The Athletic’s Jon Machota. “We’ll get some game activity, I think, out of [the players on PUP].” According to ESPN’s Jon Machota, Jones expects Cooper and Lawrence to receive “at least a little game action” during the exhibition period prior to Dallas’ regular-season opener at Tampa Bay. The Cowboys’ Aug. 21 home contest versus Houston is likely to be the dress rehearsal for the reigning Super Bowl champs — and thus the likely date for Cooper, if sparingly, to make his 2021 debut.

    Wanda Cooper-Jones was in attendance at a ceremony Monday at the Georgia State Capitol, where Gov. Brian Kemp signed legislation that will no longer allow most residents to arrest people they believe have committed a crime. “Today we are replacing a Civil War-era law ripe for abuse with language that balances the sacred right to self-defense of a person’s property with our shared responsibility to root out injustice and set our state on a better path forward,” Kemp said in Atlanta.

(Photo by Sean Rayford/Getty Images) “Today, in honor of Ahmaud’s memory,” said the governor, “we commit to taking this step forward together.” Kemp applauded Cooper-Jones, who spoke at the event. “Unfortunately, Ahmaud had to lose his life,” she said. “but the change that has been implemented since we lost him shows my family that he didn’t lose his life in vain.” “I didn’t really think we’d get this type of change within this short time...

Ahmaud Arbery’s mother has reached an agreement out of court with the 2:23 Foundation after an ongoing dispute.  As theGrio reported last May, supporters of Ahmaud Arbery, who was ambushed and fatally shot in Georgia by two white men, organized a multi-mile run to raise awareness about his murder and honor him on what would’ve been his 26th birthday.

    CNN’s Anderson Cooper and his fellow panelists had warm praise for President Joe Biden’s first presidential address, calling his remarks on America’s response to the coronavirus pandemic uplifting and inclusive. Cooper kicked off the conversation noting that Biden was America’s commander-in-chief, but “tonight he really was sort of the ‘commander-in-grief,'” mentioning how Biden had taken time at the beginning of his speech to acknowledge the 527,726 American lives that had been lost so far to Covid-19. “And he spoke in great detail about what everybody in this country has missed this past year,” CNN chief political analyst Gloria Borger noted, “how you miss being with your family, how you missed seeing your parents, how you missed seeing your grandchildren.” “And this is Joe Biden,” she continued. “This is what he talks about. This is who he is.” Borger also praised Biden for giving Americans “realistic hope,” telling us the truth, but showing the “light at the end of the tunnel,” and “here is what we, not I, what we have to do together as a country and as a nation to get out of it.” Cooper remarked that America had “grown used...

    NBCUniversal A year after Ahmaud Arbery was chased and gunned down, his mother says she's unable to move on.  "As time passes, I realize that Ahmaud is never coming back," Wanda Cooper-Jones told NBC. Arbery's death was one of several that prompted Black Lives Matter protests last summer.  Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. The mother of Ahmaud Arbery reflected on the death of her son a year after he was killed while jogging through a coastal Georgia town.  Arbery, a 25-year-old Black man was chased and gunned down by a 64-year-old former police officer, Gregory McMichael, and his 34-year-old son, Travis McMichael, on February 23, 2020.

    CNN’s Van Jones celebrated the new tenor of the Biden administration’s relationship with the White House press corps, by fawning over the basic back-and-forth between the two. On Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki held the Biden administration’s inaugural briefing and discussed a number of topics, including the “potentially divisive” impeachment trial of the 45th president. Anchor Anderson Cooper asked for Jones to reflect on what he’d seen in the first hours of the Biden White House — and Jones didn’t hold back in praising the very ordinariness of it all. “It’s just mesmerizing to watch a functional government doing functional government type things,” Jones said, before lapsing into a literal description of a normal press briefing. “I mean, just a press conference and a human and the person said words and the words made sense and then somebody asked a question and then the person answered the question and you’re just crying, just ‘Oh my god!'” Jones’ over-the-top response to Psaki’s run-of-the-mill presser evoked the Trump administration’s initial, combative briefing in 2017, where then-White House press secretary Sean Spicer set the tone for the next...

    Alabama football has undergone a transformation from a power run game to Wide Receiver U. All due respect to the likes of Clemson, USC, Ohio State and others who have previously laid claim to being Wide Receiver U, that distinction now belongs to Alabama. This has been one of the most pleasant surprises of the Nick Saban era in Tuscaloosa. We had a feeling he would bring this former Southeastern blue-blood back to prominence shortly after he returned to the SEC in 2007. However, the defensive-minded head coach has almost unbelievably created a football culture where the country’s best receiving talents can absolutely thrive in.

    A judge has denied bond to the Georgia father and son charged in the killing of Ahmaud Arbery after an unusually long hearing that stretched into a second day on Friday.  Travis McMichael and his father Gregory McMichael, who are White, are charged with counts including malice murder and felony murder in the Feb. 23 shooting of the Black man as he jogged near the coastal town of Brunswick. The killing, captured on a disturbing cellphone video, drew a national outcry.  Gregory McMichael, 65, and Travis McMichael, 34, told police they chased Arbery because they thought he was a burglary suspect and acted in self-defense during a confrontation. Two and a half months passed before the McMichaels were charged, shortly after the state began investigating and the video became public.

    CNN’s  Van Jones sparred with Rick Santorum in a wide-ranging panel discussion where the former Pennsylvania senator tried to claim voter suppression isn’t a real phenomenon and that President Donald Trump hasn’t smeared voters for cheating to defeat him. During the segment on Wednesday evening, Jones started out by attacking Republicans for pushing voter suppression policies. “I do think that what I’m hearing over and over again are folks are feeling like there is a lot of voter suppression,” Jones said. “We feel like you guys don’t want us to vote. You feel like there is a bunch of voter fraud and cheating going on.” “If we’re into voter suppression, we did a lousy job, because there was a record turnout,” a smiling Santorum joked. “When you have to wait in line for nine hours” to vote, Jones noted, “that is voter suppression.” Moments later, Santorum tried to defend the president’s increasingly frantic and conspiratorial rhetoric about an election in which his vote totals are falling further and further behind in several key states. “First off, Trump is not accusing...

    A Missouri man allegedly opened fire on his girlfriend and three children — killing her and her 6-year-old daughter — because their apartment was messy, according to relatives and police. Joseph Jones, 40, was charged Sunday with two counts of first-degree murder in the Saturday shooting deaths of Bernadetta Cooper, 40, and Doryan Bryant, 6, at the Shannon Fox Apartments in Jennings, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reported. Jones also allegedly shot Cooper’s 10- and 16-year-old daughters, who suffered a graze wound and a bullet to the shoulder, respectively, but survived the attack, police said. Cooper’s father, William Wayne, and other relatives told KSDK the fatal confrontation started early Saturday when Jones — who was the woman’s boyfriend of eight months and lived with the family — got upset that the residence was a wreck.

It was plenty. “No,” Cooper responded Friday when asked by reporters if he expects to miss the team’s 2020 home opener against the Atlanta Falcons. The Pro Bowl wideout popped up on Thursday’s injury report, essentially out of nowhere, with the bum foot. It was unclear how or when he was injured; Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones was cryptically evasive, suggesting a possible game-time decision for Week 2. “That’s fair,” Jones said earlier Friday on 105.3 The Fan, via Sports Illustrated. “I would put all of this in normal game day — this is the way it’s always going to be. We’re going to have two or three, as many as a handful that are questionable on gameday and could be that degree of seriousness.” There’s no questionable tag to be had.

    Wanda Cooper-Jones, the mother of Ahmaud Arbery, said President Donald Trump was "compassionate" toward the families of victims of police brutality during a Tuesday meeting associated with his police reform executive order, Newsweek reported. Arbery was killed by civilians, although his death and the way it was handled by local police and prosecutors set a foundation for the racial unrest that occurred after George Floyd's death at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer on May 25. One of the men charged with Arbery's murder was a former police officer. "I was very very emotional throughout the whole conference," Cooper-Jones told Fox News. "[Trump] was very compassionate. He shows major concerns for all families, not just one family but for all families. I can say that President Trump was very receiving. He listened and he addressed each and every family accordingly."
