Cooper Kupp, a wide receiver for the Los Angeles Rams, sustained an injury on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals. We are currently learning more about the type and severity of the injury.
The Athletic’sJourdan Rodrigue reports that the star Rams receiver appears to have escaped a catastrophic injury. Both Rodrigue and NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport state that Kupp will go through additional testing in the coming days.
The Rams’ defeat to the Cardinals occurred in the fourth quarter when the injury occurred. Kupp leapt and made an uncomfortable landing while attempting to receive a pass. Although his ankle was rolled up, he was still able to move to the bench without placing any weight on it.

Later, cameras captured Kupp moving alone to the changing room. He did, however, obviously limp his way down the tunnel.
If you’re a fan of the Rams or follow Rams head coach Sean McVay, this is undoubtedly fantastic news. In his post-game press conference, he at first voiced concern for the injury.
McVay told reporters, “I don’t have anything at the moment. I simply know that it didn’t sound good and it didn’t look nice.
Rams backup quarterback John Wolford remarked, “He’s possibly the best receiver in the league.” We will undoubtedly feel his absence because he is a wonderful leader for us. However, if he is unable to travel, the team will need to unite.
In place of starting quarterback Matthew Stafford, Wolford began this game. Stafford missed the game after failing to pass the pre-game concussion protocol.
After the Rams acquired Stafford in a trade, Kupp went off last season. Even though Ram’s offence surrounding him has struggled this season, much has stayed the same. Without their finest weapon for some time, that offence is currently in last place in the NFC West.
