Rams’ Cooper Kupp Suffers Torn ACL

The Rams’ worst fears have been confirmed. Wide receiver Cooper Kupp has been ruled out for the season with a torn ACL, a source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com (on Twitter). 

Kupp, 25, was in the midst of another strong season with 40 catches for 566 yards and six touchdowns in eight games. Unfortunately, the injury that forced him out of Sunday’s game against the Seahawks will end his season and leave the 9-1 Rams without one of their best weapons.

The third-round pick out of Eastern Washington was a pleasant surprise for the Rams last season as he racked up 62 catches for 869 yards and five scores. This year, before the injury, he was on pace for about 70 catches for 985 yards and ten scores.

The Rams still have plenty of pass-catching ammo thanks to Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods, but each player will attract more attention without Kupp on the field. Josh Reynolds, JoJo Natson, KhaDarel Hodge, and Nick Williams are also on the roster, so the Rams might not have to sign another receiver.

    Diehard Chiefs fan here and I have not missed a game since 1997. I hate to see an entry like this because I want to see the chiefs play the Rams at their best. With that being said I’m also realistic football fan and I do not believe that this is a super bill preview.
    My week one Super Bowl prediction was the patriots and the Saints and I’m sticking with that

    Diehard Rams fan here and this hurts, Kupp has been amazing for our team and I’m just hoping Reynolds can perform the way he did while filling in for Kupp last month. Can’t wait for the Chiefs game next Monday night!
