Rams receivers Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp cleared from concussion protocol
In the days leading up to the Week 6 matchup against the Denver Broncos, there has been plenty of questions surrounding the health of two of their top wide receivers Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp.
The Rams’ duo had each been placed in the concussion protocol after hits they suffered in last Sunday’s 33-31 win over the Seattle Seahawks. However, it appears that the two have shown enough to be back in the fold to play against the Broncos as they have cleared the process, according to Charean Williams of Pro Football Talk.
The Rams will have receivers Brandin Cooks and Cooper Kupp on Sunday. Both have cleared concussion protocol, the team announced.
This is a significant boost for the Rams as they have been a key part of their potent passing game that has headlined their offensive attack. Kupp has quickly emerged as dynamic receiving threat behind his ability to be a vital weapon in the red zone, third-down situations, and a strong possession asset. He is off to a blazing start that he has 30 catches for 438 receiving yards and five touchdowns that has put him on pace for 96 receptions for 1,402 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns.
Meanwhile, Cooks has proven to that missing piece to the passing game that has shown he is much more than just a deep-ball threat. He has added another dimension to the offense that has helped them take it to another level as he notched 26 catches for 452 receiving yards and a touchdown. This has set up the projections to be 83 receptions for 1,446 receiving yards and three touchdowns.
These two have been two big factors in the offense that has helped make the Rams the first team in league history through the first five games to have three wide receivers with more than 400 receiving yards. With both of them back in the fold, it could see them factor in greatly to Sunday’s game against the Broncos.
