The Cleveland Browns star Amari Cooper is set to return from injury against the Houston Texans in his team’s wild-card round clash on Saturday. The wide receiver sat out the last two games as he recovered from a heel injury.

“It’s getting better every day,” Cooper confirmed on Wednesday. “I’m running around now. Just a typical injury that you have to work through.” He added that he could have played in Sunday’s 31-14 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, however, the Browns opted to rest most of their starters since they had already clinched the No. 5 seed in the AFC playoffs.

Named to his fifth Pro Bowl of his career as well as his first since being traded to the Browns in 2022, Cooper has enjoyed a strong season, making 72 receptions and a career-high 1,250 receiving yards. On December 24, he set a Browns’ record of 265 receiving yards as his team beat the Houston Texans 36-22. He also scored two touchdowns.
