Star receiver Cooper Kupp injured

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp retired with an ankle injury in Sunday’s 27-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in the fourth quarter.

After the coaches looked after him on the sidelines, Kupp went to the locker room.


Initial tests on Kupp’s ankle appear to show he avoided the worst-case scenario, sources tell The Athletic. He will reportedly undergo further tests in the coming days.

Kupp was injured when a Cardinals defensive back rolled onto his leg while attempting to catch a high pass from quarterback John Wolford.

Rams coach Sean McVay did not provide any insight into Kupp’s condition after the game.

“All I know is that it didn’t look good,” McVay said.

With Matthew Stafford out with a concussion, LA’s passing attack struggled for most of the game. Kupp had three catches for -1 yards before pulling away.

Kupp was named Offensive Player of the Year last season after leading the league in receptions (145), yards (1,947) and touchdowns (16).
