Rams Cooper Kupp On Injured Reserve

Anthony Vanderlip, Staff writer

Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp will have ankle surgery Wednesday and be placed on injured reserve, coach Sean McVay said Tuesday. Kupp will miss at least four games on injured reserve, but McVay did not rule the receiver out for the rest of the season. McVay said the “tightrope” procedure that will be performed on Kupp typically has a recovery time of five to six weeks. Kupp suffered a high ankle sprain in the Rams’ Week 10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in the fourth quarter while attempting to catch a pass from quarterback John Wolford. Kupp appeared to grab his right ankle after the play and was helped to the bench by the team’s medical staff.
