Rams drop to 3-6 leaving McVay searching for non-existent positives to draw from
The Los Angeles Rams drop yet another game by a double-digit margin, losing to the Arizona Cardinals 27-17, all but wrapping up any hopes of a postseason appearance for L.A. Not only did the game end any chance of defending the Rams’ Super Bowl championship, it comes with the heavy loss of Cooper Kupp suffering a leg injury. Head coach Sean McVay addressed Kupp’s injury, as well as his lack of answers on how to fix the Rams multitude of issues.
No official update on Kupp, but it doesn’t look good
“I don’t have anything on Cooper right now. I just know it didn’t look good. It didn’t sound good. I haven’t had any dialogue with Reggie (Scott, Vice President of sports medicine and performance), but well obviously have further updates later on.”
All eyes will be focused on the status of Cooper Kupp, after the Super Bowl MVP was knocked out of the game with a leg injury. His right leg was trapped awkwardly, after leaping for an overthrown John Wolford pass. With the Rams’ playoff hopes all but gone, there should be no rush to get Kupp back to action with any urgency. Saying this is bad news is possibly the understatement of the season. Kupp was already the Rams sole bright spot on offense. One has to wonder where McVay will find any consistent offensive production moving forward. Early reports indicate Kupp avoided a catastrophic injury, but he must have further tests to confirm extent of injury. Not that this is a fix, but it’s time to see what preseason darling Lance McCutcheon has to offer.
