Rams coach Sean McVay received good news on Monday after further testing on star receiver Cooper Kupp’s right ankle. Kupp, who left in the second quarter and did not return Sunday, has a lateral ankle sprain and is considered day to day. “That was positive news for us,” McVay said via Stu Jackson of the team website. Kupp could play Sunday against the Cardinals, with McVay calling him a real possibility to be available.
In other injury news, rookie receiver Puka Nacua injured his shoulder on the pass interference penalty he drew in the fourth quarter, and McVay also called him day to day. The Rams will monitor the functionality of both players’ injuries this week, but will see the return of running back Kyren Williams this week. He has not played since Week 6 when he sprained his left ankle. “It’ll be great to be able to get him back,” McVay said. “His productivity, his play energy, his overall presence – it’s a guy that we’ve missed.”
