The Los Angeles Rams had to beat the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday without star receiver Cooper Kupp, for the most part, as he left in the first half with an ankle injury. However, the worst fears were put to rest and he has been diagnosed with an ankle sprain, per reports, and according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter is ‘day to day’. That means that Kupp could return as soon as Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, now a must-win for the Rams to keep their suddenly real playoff hopes alive.
Rams’ WR Cooper Kupp will be considered day to day with the sprained ankle that he suffered Sunday, per sources. Given Kupp’s history with ankle injuries, the Rams will be careful with him as they determine whether he can play Sunday vs. the Cardinals.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 20, 2023
Kupp missed the first four games of the season but returned from ‘tight rope surgery’ to miss the minimum amount of time possible. The Rams have benefited from the breakout rookie campaign of fifth round pick Puka Nacua with or without Kupp on the field. Kupp has 375 yards and one touchdown in six games this season, but most of that came in his first two games back.
