ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Rams WR Cooper Kupp is expected to miss 6-8 weeks after surgery for his high-ankle sprain. He adds that the team will need to turn things around to "give Kupp any chance to return this year." At 3-6, the Rams will need to make an extreme rebound to have any shot at the playoffs, and they just lost the only offensive player having a good season. We'd bet that Kupp doesn't play another snap in 2022.
Rams HC Sean McVay wouldn't put a timeline on WR Cooper Kupp's return when asked on Friday. But he said the Rams are “hopeful” that Kupp will be back when first eligible in Week 5. Kupp remains worth stashing in all fantasy leagues. We'll keep you updated on his status.
The Rams will place WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) on IR, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. That knocks Kupp out for at least the first four games of the season. Hopefully he's ready to go come Week 5 and the hamstring trouble doesn't resurface. Kupp is certainly worth stashing in all fantasy leagues. Van Jefferson figures to operate as Los Angeles' No. 1 WR with Kupp out. We'll see how the WR corps shakes out behind him. TE Tyler Higbee should also see a bunch of targets sans Kupp.
Rams HC Sean McVay conceded Friday that there's a "definite possibility" that WR Cooper Kupp lands on IR with his hamstring injury. That move would come on Saturday and knock Kupp out for the first four games of the season. It'd be a blow to Kupp's fantasy owners -- but the top priority here should be making sure this hamstring injury is truly behind him before putting him back on the field. Stay tuned.
ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday that Rams WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) has been ruled out for Week 1 vs. the Seahawks. The veteran wideout sustained a setback in rehabbing his hamstring late last week and sought the insight of a specialist in Minnesota on Monday. In speaking on 'NFL Live', Schefter added that Rams HC Sean McVay has not ruled out the possibility that Kupp could be placed on IR. Kupp's absence for Week 1 was a somewhat expected move. The real risk now is that a stint on IR would mean that the fantasy star would miss the first four games of 2023 at a minimum. Managers looking to replace Kupp could look to Van Jefferson, as he's now the presumed Rams WR1. We'll continue to monitor this situation as more information becomes available regarding a potential prolonged absence.
Rams HC Sean McVay said that he'd know more about WR Cooper Kupp's hamstring on Wednesday. Kupp is visiting a specialist in Minnesota to get another opinion on the injury. “You want to be able to just take it a day at a time,” McVay said. “We’re hopeful that this will give some clarity once he goes and talks to these doctors. It doesn’t fall in alignment with some of the things that have ended up occurring relative to the standard strains of the hamstring just based on what’s occurred over the last month and a half.” The last part of that quote is particularly worrisome. At this point, we'd be very surprised if Kupp plays in the opener vs. the Seahawks. And he could miss time beyond that. We'll continue to keep you updated on the situation.
