Update: Cooper Kupp and David Edwards are INACTIVE vs Packers.
Rams WR Cooper Kupp is INACTIVE against the Packers.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) January 16, 2021
Rams LG David Edwards is also INACTIVE today.— Lindsey Thiry (@LindseyThiry) January 16, 2021
What is the status of LA Rams receiver Cooper Kupp? That may not be known until actives around announced around one hour prior to LA’s 1:40 p.m. PT kickoff against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday. But even if Kupp is active, reports are that he will not be at full strength.
Rams’ WR Cooper Kupp is considered a “true game-time decision” for today’s Divisional Playoff against the Packers due to the bursitis in his knee, per source. Rams do not expect to decide on his status until pre-game warmups.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 16, 2021
So, uh, Cooper Kupp is walking *pretty* gingerly— Cameron DaSilva (@camdasilva) January 16, 2021

This runs contrary to the report by NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo following last Saturday’s win over the Seattle Seahawks in which he said that “All indications are nothing major for Rams WR Cooper Kupp. Knee contusion. Should be fine.”

NFL Network’s Peter Schrager, who works directly with the Rams, tweeted that “it is not sounding too likely we see him today. If he does somehow go, he’s not close to 100%...”
Latest on Rams WR Cooper Kupp... He is going to give it everything he can in pregame warmups...but it is not sounding too likely we see him today. If he does somehow go, he’s not close to 100%...— Peter Schrager (@PSchrags) January 16, 2021
More on @NFLonFOX Kickoff pregame show at 230 EST.
The Rams got good news on Aaron Donald and Jared Goff this week, but it appears that those early reports about Kupp’s knee could have been false.
I’ll update Kupp’s status as updates become available.
