Rams HC Sean McVay says ‘good chance’ Cooper Kupp will return vs. Saints
Cooper Kupp has become one of the most important pieces of the Los Angeles Rams’ offense this season, but has missed some time lately due to injury issues. A couple weeks back, Kupp went down with a knee injury that has forced him to miss two games. It doesn’t sound like it will be much longer before he gets back on the field with his team.
According to a report from Vincent Bonsignore of The Athletic, head coach Sean McVay said that there is a “good chance” that Kupp will return to the field for the Rams in Week 9 against the New Orleans Saints.

Throughout the six games that he has played with the Rams this season, Kupp has caught 30 passes for 438 yards and five touchdowns. Those numbers show exactly how valuable he has become for the Rams.
Jared Goff has been having a breakout season, with Kupp becoming one of his favorite targets. Joined by Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods, Kupp is exactly the kind of possession receiver that Goff needs.
Todd Gurley has been arguably the MVP of the NFL throughout the first eight weeks of the year. He has taken a ton of pressure off the passing game with 169 carries for 800 yards and 11 touchdowns. Gurley has also caught 31 passes for 351 yards and four touchdowns on the season.
Los Angeles looks like the best team in the NFL so far this season. They have a great offense and a defense capable of making big plays. There is certainly enough star power on the roster.
Expect to see Kupp’s return take the Rams’ offense to yet another level. They have played well without him, but his return to the field will just give opposing defenses an even bigger headache.
