The former Arizona Cardinal keeps battling health issues

Today in the team's first padded practice, former 7th overall selection by the Arizona Cardinals Jonathan Cooper was carted off the Patriots practice field.

Cooper was traded along with a 2nd round pick to the New England Patriots for Chandler Jones in a blockbuster deal earlier this offseason.

According to reports, Cooper's injury isn't ankle-related, but that he's battling plantar fasciitis.

Cooper is in the final year of his rookie contract and was battling for a starting spot on the Patriots' offensive line.  No word on how long his injury will keep him off the field.

The Patriots declined his 5th year rookie option earlier this offseason.
