Player News - Rams

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Cooper Kupp tore his ACL Week 10 against the Seahawks.

This was always the expectation after Kupp went down, and it was confirmed on Monday. It is a terrible blow both for the player, who was on his way to a great sophomore campaign, and one of the best teams in the league. With Kupp done for the season, the Rams should turn to Josh Reynolds as their No. 3 receiver. He caught four passes for 61 yards and two scores without Kupp in the lineup earlier this season. The Rams could also get TE Gerald Everett more involved in the passing game.

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, the "initial concern" is that Cooper Kupp may have suffered a torn ACL.

Kupp injured his knee in devastating fashion Sunday against Seattle. It was a non-contact injury and those never end well. The Rams won't know for sure until Kupp undergoes an MRI on Monday, but all signs point to a torn ACL, which would obviously end his season. Coach Sean McVay admitted after the game that Kupp's injury "doesn't look good." Robert Woods should see more slot usage in Kupp's absence while Josh Reynolds will move into three-wide sets opposite deep threat Brandin Cooks.

Gerald Everett caught 2-of-2 targets for 15 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Seahawks.

The score was Everett's first of the year after he posted a season-high 48 yards in Week 9. He was actually out-produced by Tyler Higbee against the Seahawks. With Cooper Kupp (knee) potentially lost for the season, but Rams tight ends could be staring at bigger usage down the stretch.
Nov 11 - 8:12 PM

Tyler Higbee caught 3-of-3 targets for 25 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Seahawks.

Higbee has suddenly cleared three targets and 25 yards in back-to-back games. It might actually remain a theme if Cooper Kupp (knee) is facing an extended absence. Higbee will have dart throw TE2 appeal for Week 11 against the Chiefs.

When asked about Cooper Kupp's knee injury after Sunday's Week 10 win over the Seahawks, Rams coach Sean McVay said, "It doesn't look good."

Non-contact knee injuries are usually season-enders and McVay's post-game remarks suggest that will likely be the case with Kupp. The second-year slot receiver had just come back from an MCL injury that cost him two games. It's a big loss for the Rams, especially with the Chiefs up next in Week 11, though L.A.'s receiver corps is still well-stocked with Brandin Cooks and Robert Woods. Assuming Kupp is out for the year or at least facing a lengthy absence, Woods will likely see more slot reps with Cooks and Josh Reynolds working outside.
Nov 11 - 8:06 PM

Robert Woods caught 4-of-5 targets for 89 yards in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Seahawks, adding three rushes for 17 additional yards.

Woods has now cleared 70 yards receiving in every game since Week 1. One of the league's most consistent players, Woods' floor will be jacked even higher if Cooper Kupp (knee) is forced to miss significant time. Woods will be a WR1 for Week 11 when the Rams journey to Mexico City to take on the equally high-flying Chiefs.
Nov 11 - 7:51 PM

Brandin Cooks caught 10-of-12 targets for 100 yards in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Seahawks, adding a nine-yard rushing touchdown.

Cooks' rushing score came on a jet sweep. The Rams spent the better part of four quarters setting it up. Both the targets and catches were new season highs. Cooks could begin seeing 10 looks with greater regularity if Cooper Kupp (knee) is lost for the season. He will be a WR1 for next Monday's guaranteed shootout with the Rams in Mexico City.
Nov 11 - 7:49 PM

Todd Gurley rushed 16 times for 120 yards and a touchdown in the Rams' Week 10 win over the Seahawks, adding three receptions for 40 additional yards.

Running with a head of steam on a toss play, Gurley's 17-yard score was sprung by a big Robert Woods block. Gurley has now cleared 150 yards from scrimmage five times this season. He has 17 touchdowns in 10 games. He should threaten for 200 yards in next Monday's Mexico City showdown with the Chiefs.
Nov 11 - 7:46 PM

Jared Goff completed 28-of-39 passes for 318 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' 36-31, Week 10 win over the Seahawks.

Goff missed a few easy throws but otherwise guided the Rams to a huge home victory. The Rams can now clinch the NFC West as early as next week. The big news, however, is Cooper Kupp's knee injury. Were Kupp to be lost for the season, it would be the biggest test the Rams have faced during the Sean McVay era. Josh Reynolds is the next man up in three-receiver sets. Even if Kupp is absent, Goff will be locked and loaded as a top-five QB1 for next Monday's guaranteed shootout with the Rams. It has game of the year potential.
Nov 11 - 7:38 PM

Cooper Kupp was forced from Sunday's game against the Seahawks with a non-contact left knee injury.

Running a full-speed route before encountering a defender, Kupp went down in non-contact fashion. He immediately grabbed his knee. He was helped to the sideline and then the locker room. He was immediately deemed "doubtful" to return. Kupp had five catches for 39 yards before going down. It's the second time in a month Kupp has injured his knee. The first proved to be a mild MCL sprain. Hopefully we get similarly good news this time around. Josh Reynolds is the next man up.
Nov 11 - 6:57 PM

Rams declared WR Nick Williams, DB Darious Williams, RB John Kelly, OLB Ogbonnia Okoronkwo, DT Sebastian Joseph-Day, TE Johnny Mundt and DT Tanzel Smart inactive for Week 10 against the Seahawks.

With Cooper Kupp back to full health, Williams is no longer needed on game days.
Nov 11 - 3:04 PM

Aqib Talib (ankle, I.R.) said it looks like he will be "ready to go" for the Rams' Week 13 game against the Lions.

While speaking on NFL Network, Talib said, "I had a great visit with the doctor today. It looks like the week after Thanksgiving, I'll be full speed, ready to go." The week after Thanksgiving is Week 13, which is directly after the Rams' bye. Talib hasn't played since undergoing ankle surgery in late September, and the Rams have missed his services with Marcus Peters ranking 106th out of 111 qualifiers according to Pro Football Focus. The Rams will be without Talib for the upcoming games against the Seahawks and the Chiefs.
Nov 6 - 7:41 PM

Rams CB Marcus Peters knows he is struggling but expects to bounce back.

Peters was the victim for most of Michael Thomas' 211-yard explosion on Sunday including a 72-yard touchdown which iced the game, but the reality is he has been playing poorly for several weeks. "I had a bad couple weeks and I’ll step up," Peters said. "I know I’m a top … corner in this league and I ain’t been playing like that. Put that on me." Peters' downturn has coincided with a calf injury he rushed back from at the end of September, but he has consistently denied the injury is an issue. Whatever the problem, the Rams need to figure out their issues in the secondary before the playoffs roll around. Getting Aqib Talib (ankle, IR) back would go a long way.
Nov 5 - 9:25 AM

Malcolm Brown turned his only target into an 18-yard touchdown in the Rams' Week 9 loss to the Saints.

Brown does not get many touches behind Todd Gurley, but he has been effective when given a shot this year. He was even better than that on the first drive of the second half. After making a catch in the flat, Brown somehow avoided a tackler, acrobatically tip-toed down the sideline, and went in for an 18-yard score. Brown remains the best handcuff in the game, and he could get a start or two late in the year if the Rams lock things up early
Nov 4 - 8:53 PM

Gerald Everett hauled in 3-of-5 targets for 48 yards and a two-point conversion in the Rams' Week 9 loss to the Saints.

The Rams do not utilize their tight ends much, but both Everett and Tyler Higbee had solid games. Everett caught two passes to help set up a field goal just before halftime, and he converted a two-pointer to tie the game in the fourth quarter. This was Everett's first game with more than 25 yards this season. He is still only rosterable in Dynasty formats.
