The Rams received good news on Monday regarding the status of receiver Cooper Kupp, who sustained a lateral ankle sprain and is considered day to day. Kupp left in the second quarter and did not return Sunday.
The Rams coach, Sean McVay, said that this was positive news for the team, as it means that Kupp could potentially play on Sunday against the Cardinals. “It’s a real possibility that he would be available,” McVay said. “I know he’s going to do everything in his power.”
The team will monitor the functionality of Kupp’s ankle this week, while rookie receiver Puka Nacua is also being called day to day after injuring his shoulder during a pass interference penalty in the fourth quarter.
In addition to Kupp and Nacua, the Rams will see the return of running back Kyren Williams this week. He has not played since Week 6 when he sprained his left ankle. According to McVay, Williams’ productivity, play energy, and overall presence will be greatly missed by the team.
