Kupp caught six of eight targets for 50 yards during Sunday's 37-10 win over Atlanta.
This was the second consecutive poor showing from Kupp. He topped 100 yards in each of the previous four games while scoring four touchdowns during the stretch, so the third-year receiver shouldn't be written off after a couple of disappointing performances. Although there are still definite concerns with the Rams offense -- even with this rebound, 37-point showing in mind -- Kupp projects as a bounce-back candidate heading into Week 8.
Kupp caught four of six targets for 17 yards during Sunday's 20-7 loss to the 49ers.
Kupp led the team in targets yet again, though his middling total of six was easily his lowest of the season. He did little with his looks but was still just eight yards off the team lead in receiving, which is a true testament to how futile the offense was in this one. Kupp was been one of the top wideouts in fantasy over the first five weeks of the season and will enjoy an excellent opportunity to bounce back next Sunday on the road against the Falcons.
Kupp brought in nine of 17 targets for 117 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' 30-29 loss to the Seahawks on Thursday.
Kupp's normally robust workload bumped up another couple notches Thursday, with Brandin Cooks' early exit from the contest due to a head injury certainly playing a part. The third-year wideout also secured his fourth touchdown of the season with a nine-yard scoring grab in the second quarter, and he extended his streak of 100-yard games to four. Now arguably Jared Goff's No. 1 receiver irrespective of official depth chart slotting, Kupp will look to continue his outstanding start to the season versus the 49ers in a Week 6 divisional matchup a week from Sunday.
Kupp caught nine of 15 targets for 121 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 55-40 loss to the Buccaneers.
The 15 targets tied Robert Woods for the team lead in the wild affair. Kupp has now hauled in at least 100 yards in three straight games and seen at least nine targets in four straight, as he re-establishes himself as Jared Goff's favorite receiver following last year's season-ending knee injury.
Kupp hauled in 11 of 12 passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's 20-13 win over the Browns.
Kupp eclipsed the century mark for the second consecutive week, and this time he added two touchdowns to boot. The Rams' slot man has picked up right where he left off before suffering a torn ACL last season, proving to be completely in sync with quarterback Jared Goff, especially when the quarterback needs to find him in the end zone (six touchdowns in eight games last season). Kupp is looking the part of top fantasy receiver through three games, averaging 7.7 receptions on 10.3 targets for 89.3 yards per game early on this year. A matchup against a pedestrian Buccaneer secondary should prove fruitful for the entire Rams' passing unit in Week 4.
Kupp brought in five of nine targets for 120 yards and rushed once for six yards in the Rams' 27-9 win over the Saints on Sunday.
Kupp encouragingly saw just one fewer target than the opener versus the Panthers, and he exploded for his best yardage total since Week 4 of last season on the strength of a spectacular 66-yard catch-and-run sequence in the fourth quarter that left him just inches short of the goal line. The 26-year-old wideout showed off speed and strength on the play via a barrage of stiff arms and broken tackles up the field. Kupp's yardage tally was ultimately a game-high figure and gives him plenty of momentum as he heads into a Week 3 road tussle against the Browns.
Kupp caught seven of 10 targets for 46 yards during Sunday's 30-27 win over Carolina.
After missing the final six games of the 2018 season with a torn ACL, the Rams got Kupp back in the flow early, providing him with double-digit targets for the fourth time in his career. None of those targets led to a completion of more than 10 yards and his 6.57 yards per catch were a career low, but there's likely a fair amount of rust being shaken off by Kupp and the Rams' offense as a whole after sitting out the preseason. Next up will be a NFC Championship Game rematch against the Saints in Week 2.
Kupp (knee) is active as expected for Sunday's Week 1 tilt versus the Panthers.
Kupp will make his return to action after suffering a Week 10 ACL tear last season. The third-year wideout will look to pick up where he left off during his truncated sophomore campaign, when he compiled a 40-566-6 line across eight games before being sidelined.
Kupp (knee) wasn't listed Wednesday on the Rams' initial Week 1 injury report, Lindsey Thiry of ESPN.com reports.
Kupp tore the ACL in his left knee Week 10 last season and underwent surgery Nov. 16. With those dates in mind, he made incredible progress with his recovery, going through individual drills in mid-May and team drills a week later before avoiding the PUP list at the start of training camp. While the Rams predictably held him out of preseason action, Kupp is poised to return to the field Sunday against a Panthers defense that was middle of the pack against the pass (240.4 yards per game) in 2018.
Kupp's post-surgery athletic testing numbers for quickness and agility are better than the times he had before he tore his ACL, Jay Glazer of The Athletic reports.
This should be taken with a grain of salt, as the exact nature of the drills isn't specified, nor is the date when his pre-injury times were recorded. Kupp may be held out for the entire preseason along with the rest of the Rams' top starters, but his participation in practices this summer suggests he's on track for Week 1 at Carolina. His stat line from eight appearances last season prorates to an 80-1,132-12 receiving line over 16 games -- and that includes two contests in which injuries limited him to 36 and 28 snaps.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
