Brandin Cooks will miss Week 10 with a concussion

Rams wide receiver Brandin Cooks traveled to Pittsburgh to meet with a specialist about his concussion over the bye week and head coach Sean McVay said earlier this week that the team considered him day-to-day after that evaluation.

The last couple of days have pushed Cooks’ outlook in the wrong direction, however.

McVay said on Wednesday that Cooks is headed back to Pittsburgh for further evaluation. As a result, he will not be on the field in Pittsburgh on Sunday when the Rams take on the Steelers.

This will be the first regular season game that Cooks has missed since joining the Rams in 2018, but it is his second concussion this season and he’s dealt with four since February of that year.

Cooper Kupp, Robert Woods, Josh Reynolds, Mike Thomas and JoJo Natson will handle the receiving work in Cooks’s absence.

  1. If we were being serious about concussions he’d be done for at least the next month, but it’s all about losing your job for the player, and winning games for the team, so we just act like we’re concerned about concussions

  2. Worrying news. I think Cooks should hang them up and take time to recover his health. Some things are bigger than football…

  3. Dude should retire. That hit in the SB was BRUTAL and he’s had a few since. Hes flush with cash. Time to find something else to do with his time.

  4. Steelers have concussion worries of their own. Every time they put Rudolph out there is a big risk they shouldn’t take.

  5. They’ll put Kupp out wide and Reynolds in the slot and the offense will be practically the same.
