The Los Angeles Rams will have a welcomed addition to the wide receiver room as receiver and kick returner/punt returner Pharoh Cooper is rejoining the team from the injured reserve list:

With the recent season-ending injury to WR Cooper Kupp (torn ACL), Cooper might actually get some time at receiver moving forward as opposed to only getting playing time on special teams.
Each team is given two designated to return from IR spots and the Rams have been adamant about using one for CB Aqib Talib, essentially meaning they will have none left.
Cooper was a pro bowl returner in 2017 though he left a bad taste in the mouths of Rams fans with a major blunder (or two) in the playoff game versus the Atlanta Falcons. In three seasons with the Rams, Cooper has registered only 25 receptions for 190 yards receiving.
His addition is interesting because current PR JoJo Natson has done a solid job in Cooper’s place.
