Cooper Kupp uncertain for Week 1

Rams HC Sean McVay hinted that WR Cooper Kupp (hamstring) might not be ready for the season opener. “It’s just tricky,” McVay said. "There’s a difference between ‘return to play’ and ‘return to performance’. We want ‘return to performance’ for Cooper Kupp, and we know how special of a player, how special of a person he is. We want to make sure that we’re smart with that and getting him back to feeling like the Cooper Kupp that we all know — and that he is able to play the way he is capable of, whenever that is. Whether that’s Sept. 10 or not, we’ll continue to monitor that and control what we can control.” Kupp was sidelined for about three weeks with his initial hamstring injury. We don't know how this setback compares in terms of severity, but it wouldn't be surprising if he was out a similar length of time. For now, we've trimmed one game off Kupp's projections. See where he lands in the WR rankings.
