I have a photo uploaded in an album that I want to set as the cover photo for my Profile. Is there a way to do so without downloading the photo and upload it again?

When I open the photo, under the "Options" I see, "Set as Profile Photo" but there is no "Set as Cover Photo".

Is this possible?

Yes there is. Visit your profile page, click on the Change Cover link at the bottom left of your cover image, then Choose from Photos....
