Rams don’t know when Brandin Cooks will play again
The Los Angeles Rams are now expected to be without veteran wide receiver Brandin Cooks for the foreseeable future as the NFC West franchise still doesn’t know when he will play again. Cooks has continued to battle concessions all season long as once again exited prematurely as the Rams recently took on the Cincinnati Bengals overseas in London, England.
“I think for him, just being able to learn about the entirety of what’s going on and maybe have a better understanding of maybe why some of these things have occurred, I think gives him a quieted mind,” Rams head coach Sean McVay recently said of Cooks, via ESPN. “It gives us a good feeling about how we want to progress and move forward with this.”

Luckily for McVay and company, the Rams are loaded on offense and specifically at the wide receiver position. In addition to the oft-injured Cooks, the Rams are also sporting the likes of running back Todd Gurley, quarterback Jared Goff and wide receivers Robert Woods and Cooper Kupp on offense. As a result, the Rams can afford to be without Cooks for an extended period of time, which will allow the veteran pass-catcher to put his health first and not rush back from his latest setback.
“It’s going to be something that we’re going to just really take it a day at a time,” McVay added, via ESPN.
The Rams are currently in third place in the NFC West division despite finding themselves in the thick of the NFC playoff picture.
