Rams coach Sean McVay received positive news Monday about the status of injured receiver Cooper Kupp, who left the game in the second quarter and did not return. After further testing, Kupp was diagnosed with a lateral ankle sprain and is considered day to day.
According to McVay, Kupp could potentially play Sunday against the Cardinals. “It’s a real possibility that he would be available,” he said. “I know he’s going to do everything in his power.” The Rams will monitor Kupp’s ankle functionality throughout the week before making a decision on his availability for the game.
In addition to Kupp, rookie receiver Puka Nacua also suffered an injury during the game, injuring his shoulder on a pass interference penalty in the fourth quarter. Like Kupp, Nacua is being considered day to day by the Rams.
The team will also see the return of running back Kyren Williams this week. He has been out 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 and it will be great to have him back on the field again.
