LA Rams head coach Sean McVay delivered good injury news on Monday when he told reporters that standout wide receiver Cooper Kupp does not have an ankle sprain and he will be ready to play in the season opener against visiting the Dallas Cowboys on Sept. 13.
Kupp departed the Rams scrimmage at SoFi Stadium on Saturday early with leg soreness. The NFL Network reported that Kupp had an ankle sprain, but McVay said that report was inaccurate and Kupp is simply sore.
The team could be cautious with him this week, but it should not get in his way of preparing to face the Cowboys.

McVay also offered a positive injury update on running back Darrell Henderson. He will be monitored with a hamstring injury but he still has a chance to face Dallas in 13 days. So, all in all, Monday was a good day on the injury front for the Rams.
