It has been reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter that wide receiver Cooper Kupp sustained an MCL sprain on Sunday against the Denver Broncos:

During the game, Kupp was horse collar tackled by Broncos safety Darian Stewart. After the injury, Kupp was carted off the field but did return to the game. He tried to play with the injury but was removed from the remainder of the game as a precaution according to Head Coach Sean McVay.

Currently there has not been a timetable set for Kupp’s return, though an injury of this magnitude typically sidelines players for multiple weeks:

The Rams will more than likely move Josh Reynolds into the rotation. Woods will more than likely play more snaps in the slot with Reynolds handling the outside work. It will be interesting to see if the Rams decide to increase tight end Gerald Everett’s workload since he is more of a receiver than blocker at this point of his career and this could be the best chance for his snap count to increase.

Next up the Rams will play the San Francisco 49ers.
