Saints lose rookie wide receiver Brandin Cooks for a month with broken thumb
Brandin Cooks broke his thumb in Sunday’s loss to Cincinnati and is out about a month, according to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport.
He has 19 catches over the last four weeks, and 55 grabs for 550 yards on the season. He’s also added 73 yards on the ground with four total touchdowns. He gives coach Sean Payton a ton of different options for playcalling, which now won’t be available over the next month. This effectively ruins Cooks’ chances for Offensive Rookie of the Year in this epic year for rookie wideouts.
