The Rams received good news Monday after further testing of Cooper Kupp’s right ankle. Kupp, who left in the second quarter and did not return Sunday, has a lateral ankle sprain and is considered day to day. According to Stu Jackson of the team website, Rams coach Sean McVay said “That was positive news for us.” Kupp could play Sunday against the Cardinals. McVay stated that it’s a real possibility that he would be available.
The Rams will monitor the functionality of Kupp’s ankle this week. Rookie receiver Puka Nacua injured his shoulder on the pass interference penalty he drew in the fourth quarter, and McVay also called him day to day. In addition to Kupp’s potential return, the Rams will also see the return of running back Kyren Williams this week. He has not played since Week 6 when he sprained his left ankle.
McVay expressed his excitement about Williams’ return, stating “It’ll be great to be able to get him back, his productivity, his play energy, his overall presence.” Williams is a guy that the Rams have missed, and his return could greatly impact their offense.
