There’s trouble in Hollywood! On Tuesday, Cooper Kupp joined his teammates for a two-hour workout at UC Irvine. Approximately thirty minutes into the workout, he was reportedly walked off of the field by members of the training staff and taken inside for an MRI. It is unclear what prompted Kupp to walk off of the field, but Los Angeles Rams Head Coach Sean McVay suggested that the wide receiver “came up a little bit in a red zone route.” The results of the MRI are unknown to the public just yet, but McVay said that Kupp may be ready “for scrimmages in a few weeks.”
“Obviously, we’re much better when he’s here, and we hope he’s going to be OK,” McVay continued.
“If he’s not, we’ll see what happens, but the practice had to go on.”
Kupp was a key component of the Rams’ Super Bowl LVI title. In 17 games, he caught 145 passes for nearly 2,000 yards and 16 touchdowns. One season later, he missed eight games due to a high ankle sprain. Similarly, he missed eight games in 2018 due to a torn knee ligament. At this time, it is unclear what the extent of Kupp’s injury is and if it will keep him out of regular season action this year.
