Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp will not play in Sunday’s regular-season finale against the Cardinals after testing positive for COVID-19.
Kupp had already been placed on the COVID-19 reserve list, but it was unclear whether that was because he tested positive or had been exposed to someone who did. But Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports that Kupp had a positive test and has been ruled out for Sunday.
The winner of the Cardinals-Rams game clinches a wild card berth. If the Cardinals lose, they are eliminated from playoff contention. If the Rams lose, they would still make the playoffs if the Bears lose to the Packers.
