Rams’ Cooper Kupp Suffers Ankle Injury

The Los Angeles Rams may be without their top receiver after Cooper Kupp suffered an ankle injury early in the fourth quarter during the Rams 27-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, according to ESPN’s Sarah Barshop.

“I just know it didn’t look good. It didn’t sound good” Rams head coach Sean McVay said of Kupp following the game. Kupp did not speak to the media.

Kupp was hurt while attempting to catch a pass from quarterback John Wolford, appearing to grab his right ankle following the play and was eventually helped to the bench by the team’s medical staff.

“He’s arguably the best receiver in the league,” Wolford said. “He’s a great leader for us and we’ll definitely feel an impact to him not being out there, but guys got to step up and we’ve got to rally if he’s not able to go. We don’t even know the extent of the injury yet, though.”

Kupp had been riding an incredible season thus far, entering Sunday’s game with 72 receptions, for a pace of 153 over a 17-game season.
