Sean McVay: Cooper Kupp’s ankle injury “didn’t look good”

Rams receiver Cooper Kupp had to exit Sunday’s loss to the Cardinals early in the fourth quarter with an ankle injury.

He was announced as doubtful to return and did not see the field again.

Head coach Sean McVay said after the game that he didn’t have a definitive update on Kupp, as he hadn’t yet spoken to the team’s medical and training staff.

“I just know it didn’t look good. It didn’t sound good,” McVay said in his press conference.

Kupp was injured on a high, incomplete pass with 14:24 left in the contest. Kupp went up to try and catch it and when he came down had his ankle rolled up on by a defender on the ground.

Los Angeles’ best offensive player, Kupp entered Week 10 with 72 catches for 813 yards with six touchdowns. He’s also taken nine carries for 52 yards with a TD.

But with quarterback Matthew Stafford out while in concussion protocol, Kupp didn’t have the same level of production with backup John Wolford. Kupp finished the game with three receptions for -1 yard, a career-low.

The 3-6 Rams will play the Saints in New Orleans next week.

  1. Big Rams fan here. Mcvay lost a super bowl where the d gave up 13, and he has a back up an whonreninds him of himself.(short, not very athletic) and he got his best player it’s. Mcvay isn’t that competent. He coaches scares. . I hope he goes sooner than later.

    What???

  3. I bet the Rams wish they had them picks because they’re gonna be rebuilding for a long, long time.

  4. Kupp is the one player that if they lose him, they may not win another game. Stafford is replaceable, Kupp is not.

    This should be the final nail in the 2022 season, if it wasn’t clear before tonight.

  5. “eff them picks” rarely ends well.

    As a fan of a team that traded its first round pick this year (and is now 3-7) to a team that is currently 8-0, I think I should know…

  6. This is what happens when a team sells its soul To get one title. They are doing a beautiful job of defending it!
