The Rams received positive news on Monday regarding the status of injured receiver Cooper Kupp. After further testing, it was determined that he has a lateral ankle sprain and is considered day to day. Rams coach Sean McVay expressed his optimism about Kupp’s return, stating that he could potentially play against the Cardinals on Sunday.
In addition to Kupp’s injury, the Rams also suffered from another setback with rookie receiver Puka Nacua injuring his shoulder during a pass interference penalty in the fourth quarter. McVay labeled Nacua as day to day as well, but expressed hope that he would be able to return soon.
Despite these injuries, the Rams will continue to monitor Kupp’s ankle and Nacua’s shoulder this week. However, there is good news on the horizon as running back Kyren Williams is expected to make a return this week after missing time due to a left ankle sprain in Week 6. McVay stated that Williams’ productivity, play energy, and overall presence would be greatly missed and he was looking forward to having him back in action.
