Rams’ Brandin Cooks, Cooper Kupp ‘on track’ to play in Week 6
The red-hot Los Angeles Rams are hoping wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp will be able to play in Week 6 against the Denver Broncos. Both Cooks and Kupp are listed as questionable with concussions, but returned to practice on a limited basis Thursday.
The Rams are 5-0 on the season, and Cooks and Kupp are a big reason why. Cooks, one of the fastest players in the game, has 20 receptions on the year for 452 yards and one touchdown. He has become quarterback Jared Goff’s favorite deep threat on the team.
Kupp, meanwhile, is Mr. Reliable. The 6-foot-2 wideout has caught 30 balls this season for 438 yards and five touchdowns. Whenever the Rams need a big catch or a third-down conversion, Goff tends to look in Kupp’s direction more often than not.
“[They] should be good to go for Sunday unless there’s any setbacks,” Rams coach Sean McVay said, via Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register.
The Rams have arguably the most explosive offense in the league. Second-year receiver Josh Reynolds would get more playing time if Cooks or Kupp isn’t able to play or perform at 100 percent. Los Angeles looks to improve to 6-0 on the season with a win over the struggling Broncos.
As it stands, Los Angeles is a 7-point favorite on the road in Denver, according to BetOnline.ag. To place a bet on the game or any others, click here and use promo code CLUTCH50 for a 50% Welcome Bonus when you signup with BetOnline.ag!
