Rams HC Sean McVay says Cooper Kupp’s injury vs. Seahawks is ‘not good’
The Los Angeles Rams managed to bounce back from their Week 9 road loss to the New Orleans Saints by taking down the Seattle Seahawks at home on Sunday, 36-31. However, they can’t be too ecstatic over the win, as they probably had just lost wide receiver Cooper Kupp for the rest of the season.
Cooper left the Seattle game in the fourth quarter after going down with what seemed to be a non-contact knee injury and did not return. Rams head coach Sean McVay expressed his concerns about Kupp’s status following the conclusion of the contest, via Adam Schefter of ESPN.

In another update, Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network said that the Rams fear that Kupp suffered a torn ACL, would likely wipe out his availability for the rest of the season.
#Rams WR Cooper Kupp suffered a knee injury today and sources say the initial concern is that it is a torn ACL. He’ll have an MRI tomorrow, but this explains why coach Sean McVay said it was “not good.” A potential big loss for a top team.
Kupp, who had 39 receiving yards on five catches and eight catches before exiting Sunday’s contest, will be a big loss for the Rams’ offense if he gets ruled out for the rest of the season. Kupp entered Week 10 third on the team in receiving yards (527) with a team-pacing six touchdown receptions. His rapport with franchise quarterback Jared Goff has played a key role in making Los Angeles’ passing attack as one of the deadliest in the NFL.
