Rams HC Sean McVay said Monday that he's "hopeful" that WRs Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp will be cleared from their concussions for this weekend's game against the Broncos. “They felt good today. They didn’t have any symptoms or things like that,” McVay said. “We’ll go through the standard operating procedure, and if everything checks out — with our guys and with the doctors that are part of that process — then we’re hopeful to get those guys this week, get them back for this game this week.” We'll keep an eye on Cooks and Kupp's progress this week. Josh Reynolds and KhaDarel Hodge are next in line if either or both of those guys can't play on Sunday.
The Texans have traded the 57th pick in the NFL Draft to the Rams for WR Brandin Cooks and a 4th-round pick in 2022. Cooks joins the trio of Will Fuller, Kenny Stills and Randall Cobb atop Houston's WR depth chart and should be the best bet to lead the group in targets. His departure from the Rams leaves room for WR Josh Reynolds to capture more playing time -- barring a significant WR addition in the upcoming draft. The Rams also cut Cooks' playing time in the 2nd half of last season, preferring to get more TEs on the field.

Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) is expected to return for Monday night's game against the Ravens, HC Sean McVay said. Cooks has been out since sustaining the 4th documented concussion of his career and his 2nd this year back in Week 8. He averaged 6.3 targets, 3.9 catches and 57 yards across the first 7 games of the season. We'll track his status throughout the week.
Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) is out for Sunday night's game against the Bears. He returned to a limited practice last Friday, but this early rule-out suggests he's not close to gaining full clearance. With Cooks sidelined last week, WR Josh Reynolds played 95% of the Rams' offensive snaps and saw 5 targets.
Rams WR Brandin Cooks (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Friday. “Part of the advice is just keep a normal rhythm and routine for him, staying active, avoiding some of those collision-type things," HC Sean McVay said. "This has been part of the advice that wanted to follow, and it’s part of the plan to hopefully getting him back on the field.” Cooks is out for Sunday's game against the Steelers but seemingly has a shot to be cleared for Week 11.
