Rams' Cooper Kupp: Takes contact without issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp (knee) popped right back up off the turf after taking a hit in Sunday's practice, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

Head coach Sean McVay noted Kupp has gotten better with each day of training camp, and the wideout added that it felt great to take his first real hit since tearing his ACL last November. Kupp remains on track to play Week 1, but it will be important to monitor his progress leading into the season. His return should provide a notable boost to the Los Angeles offense.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Practice reps scaled back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp's practice reps were limited Thursday, Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic reports.

The Rams and Chargers held a joint practice, which coach Sean McVay used to see how the other side would proceed. Afterward, he said, "I think, given the way that the Chargers were so professional about how they practice -- and I like to think it was the same for our guys -- I think you can expect to see him [Kupp] get some work on Saturday when we revisit these guys." As such, Kupp is expected to ramp up his workload in the second session between the two teams. It's no surprise McVay is taking it easy on Kupp as he goes through the final stages of his recovery from a torn left ACL. In the end, the aim is for Kupp to reach Week 1 ready to roll as the primary option out of the slot for quarterback Jared Goff.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Deemed to have no restrictions
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McVay said Kupp (knee) doesn't have any restrictions at the start of training camp, Omar Ruiz of NFL Network reports.

Despite suffering a torn ACL in Week 10 and undergoing surgery Nov. 16, Kupp has progressed enough that he's received clearance for all activity. Maybe this shouldn't be a surprise, considering he was healthy enough to partake in team drills during the offseason program. In any case, the Rams likely will exercise caution with Kupp during the preseason slate to avoid any unnecessary contact.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Will avoid PUP list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams won't place Kupp (knee) on the PUP list to begin training camp, Steve Wyche of NFL Network reports.

That's not to say Kupp has completed his recovery from the torn ACL that ended his 2018 campaign Week 10, but the team must feel confident that he'll get through training camp and the preseason unscathed. His showings during both will be key to determining his level of fitness for Week 1, when, if cleared, he'll return to his role as a safety valve for Jared Goff out of the slot. In 23 regular-season appearances to date, Kupp has posted a 68.4 percent catch rate en route to 4.4 receptions for 62.4 yards and 0.5 touchdowns per game.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Appears in team drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp (knee) took part in team drills that were at less than 100 percent speed Tuesday, Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic reports.

Kupp participated in individual drills last week, but this is the first mention of him making an appearance during the team drills portion of OTAs. The fact that the session was less than full speed likely played a role in Kupp's ability to partake, though it's an encouraging sign nonetheless. Coming off a torn ACL and subsequent surgery last November, Kupp is aiming to be ready for the start of the 2019 regular season.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Goes through individual drills
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp (knee) was limited to individual drills on the sideline at the start of OTAs on Monday, ESPN.com's Lindsey Thiry reports.

Kupp said he's happy with his progress but doesn't want to speculate on a target date for a return to practice. He's rehabbing from Nov. 16 surgery to repair a torn ACL and has been running in some capacity since at least mid-March. Coach Sean McVay said in April that he hopes to have the third-year wideout at close to 100 percent by Week 1. Kupp will be a little more than eight months removed from the surgery when the Rams open training camp in late July.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Aiming to be healthy by Week 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McVay said on The Rich Eisen Show that Kupp is "doing good" in his rehab from a torn ACL in his left knee, with the aim to have him operating at close to 100 percent by Week 1.

Almost exactly five months removed from the injury and subsequent surgery, Kupp is on pace with his rehab by all indications. He even began running at the Rams' facility in mid-March, according to Clarence Dennis of the team's official site. There's a belief Kupp will be ready to participate in training camp in late July and early August, but the real test will be in-game reps at some point in the preseason. After he was lost for the season Week 10, Jared Goff surpassed 300 yards passing just twice in nine games (as opposed to six times in the first 10 contests). A healthy Kupp should revitalize the aerial attack.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Expected back for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McVay indicated that the Rams believe Kupp (knee) will be healthy enough to participate in training camp this summer, Myles Simmons of the team's official site reports. "I would just say that it's something that we're going to monitor this offseason, but we fully expect him to be ready to go for training camp," McVay said Thursday at the NFL Combine.

Kupp is currently about four months removed from tearing his ACL in Week 10 of last season and will be about eight and a half months removed from the injury by the time training camp rolls around. Given the speed at which modern athletes are recovering from these kinds of injuries, it's not a huge surprise that Kupp will be ready to go when camp opens. While it's possible the coaching staff could take it easy on him to begin with, Kupp appears on track to be an option for QB Jared Goff once the 2019 regular season opens.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Avoiding setbacks so far
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp (knee) said he hasn't dealt with any setbacks in his recovery from a torn ACL, Sam Farmer of the LA Times reports.

Dr. Neal ElAttrache, who performed the surgery Nov. 16, said the procedure was "pretty straight forward" while also cautioning that not every player returns to his previous form. The 25-year-old wide receiver does have youth working in his favor, and it doesn't hurt that he had a solid track record of durability dating back to college before he ran into knee problems during the 2018 campaign. Kupp has mostly avoided the media throughout his rehab process, but he's still been around his teammates trying to help with preparation for games. He'll be 10 months removed from the injury when Week 1 of 2019 rolls around.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Officially moved to IR
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rams placed Kupp (knee) on injured reserve Monday, Clarence Dennis of the Rams' official site reports.

The move is merely a formality after Kupp sustained a torn ACL during the Week 10 win over the Seahawks that required season-ending surgery. Kupp's procedure went according to plan, so the Rams will hold out hope that he'll make a full recovery and have a shot at returning shortly before the 2019 season gets underway. In a corresponding transaction, the Rams activated Pharoh Cooper (ankle) from IR to bolster their return game and provide an additional healthy body at receiver.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Undergoes ACL surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McVay confirmed Kupp (knee) underwent successful surgery Friday to repair a torn ACL, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

McVay didn't offer a specific timeline for Kupp's recovery from the procedure, but noted that doctors detected no additional structural damage in the wideout's left knee. That seemingly bodes well for Kupp's odds of being available for the start of the 2019 season, though the lengthy rehab process could keep him sidelined for the first few weeks of training camp and the preseason. As for the rest of the current campaign, the Rams will likely prepare Josh Reynolds for a regular role in three-wideout sets on the outside of formations, while Robert Woods shifts inside to fill Kupp's usual duties in the slot.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Diagnosed with ACL tear
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp has been diagnosed with a torn ACL, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Testing confirmed the Rams' fear of a season-ending injury. The talented second-year wideout will hope to make it back for Week 1 of 2019, while Josh Reynolds figures to step in as the No. 3 receiver in an offense that almost exclusively uses three-wide sets. The Rams could alter their strategy to account for Kupp's absence, potentially using more formations that keep tight ends Tyler Higbee and Gerald Everett on the field at the same time. Kupp injured the same left knee in which he suffered an MCL sprain four weeks prior.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Torn ACL feared
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp (knee) will undergo an MRI on Monday, but the team fears he suffered a torn ACL in Sunday's game versus the Seahawks, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports.

Kupp went down in the fourth quarter with a non-contact injury that saw him clutching his left knee. Of course, Kupp only returned last Sunday from a two-game absence due to a sprained MCL in that same knee. Given that connection, Rams coach Sean McVay didn't surprise many people when he said after the game that Kupp's outlook appeared grim, and now the wideout's season could be in jeopardy. The results on Monday's MRI should determine Kupp's fate, but the signs so far don't look good.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Knee injury outlook not good
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rams coach Sean McVay said, "I don't think it's very good" when asked about Kupp's knee injury suffered in Sunday's game against the Seahawks, J.B. Long of ESPN Los Angeles reports.

Kupp was forced out during the fourth quarter of Sunday's contest with what appeared to be a non-contact injury. As Kupp was down on the field, he was seen holding his left knee, which recently kept him out for two games while nursing a sprained MCL. While his situation will be updated as more news becomes available, the early indications surrounding his status are not positive.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Injures knee, doubtful to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp is doubtful to return to Sunday's game against the Seahawks due to a knee injury, Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site reports.

Kupp went down in a heap in the fourth quarter with what Simmons believed to be a non-contact injury. Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reported Kupp was clutching at his left knee, which he initially hurt last month and rested with a pair of absences. Shortly after walking to the locker room, the Rams made the "doubtful to return" announcement, an ominous sign for the coming days. Kupp will be examined to determine the extent of the issue.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Scores touchdown in return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp (knee) caught five of six targets for 89 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 45-35 loss to the Saints.

Kupp returned from a two-game absence due to a knee injury and made his presence felt. He finished second on the team in catches and receiving yards, doing most of his damage on a 41-yard touchdown reception to tie the game in the fourth quarter. Kupp's presence was surely missed while he was out, as he now has 527 yards and six touchdowns through six full games this season. He appears to be fully over the injury and should be in line to produce next Sunday against the Seahawks.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Officially cleared for return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp (knee) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game at New Orleans, Josh Katzenstein of The New Orleans Times-Picayune reports.

Kupp followed limited practices Wednesday and Thursday with a full session Friday, erasing any doubt about his ability to return from a two-game absence. He'll re-enter the lineup with a favorable matchup against slot cornerback P.J. Williams, who was utterly overmatched against Minnesota's Adam Thielen last week. The Saints defense has given up 10.4 yards per target on passes to wide receivers, yielding 13 touchdowns and 1,650 yards in seven games this season.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Still on track to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Coach Sean McVay reiterated Friday that Kupp (knee) will return to game action Sunday in New Orleans, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Kupp got an endorsement from McVay earlier in the week and then managed limited practice participation Wednesday and Thursday. Another update on Kupp will come later Friday when the Rams release their final injury report.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Remains limited Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp (knee) remained limited at practice Thursday.

Coach Sean McVay hasn't wavered from his assertion that Kupp will return from a two-game absence for Sunday's showdown at New Orleans. "I know he's feeling good and confident and excited to be back out there," McVay told Myles Simmons of the Rams' official site. So far, individual drills have been the extent of Kupp's activity, per Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com. Having said that, Kupp likely doesn't need many reps to be able to reincorporate himself into the Rams' dynamic offense.

Rams' Cooper Kupp: Limited at Wednesday's walk-through
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Kupp (knee) was limited at Wednesday's walk-through practice, Rich Hammond of the Los Angeles Daily News reports.

Coach Sean McVay declared earlier in the week that Kupp is expected to return for Sunday's game at New Orleans, per Gary Klein of the Los Angeles Times. Earning a limited tag, even if it occurred at a walk-through, is a positive step as Kupp aims to get past a sprained MCL in his left knee. His workload the next two days will go a long way toward determining his Week 9 availability. If Kupp returns, he likely will push Josh Reynolds out of the starting ranks and into a lighter-usage depth role.
