The Los Angeles Rams lost one of its offensive weapons. The team will play the rest of the season without Cooper Kupp.
He suffered a torn ACL on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks. It was confirmed with an MRI on Monday.
“It’s a huge loss for our football team, he’s such an important part of what we do and a great football player, a great person, and it’s tough, but fortunately we’ve got guys that are ready to step up,” Rams head coach Sean McVay said.
Kupp, along with Robert Woods and Brandin Cooks, have terrorized secondaries all season. They helped the Rams go 9-1 up until this point in the season.
He previously missed games this season with an injury to the same knee that he tore his ACL in. The 25-year-old had 40 receptions for 566 yards and six touchdowns in eight games this season.
The Yakima, Washington native has five receptions for 39 yards against the Seahawks. He left with a non-contact injury.
Kupp had only one game this season, where he had more than 100 receiving yards. He had nine receptions for 162 yards in the Rams 38-31 win over the Minnesota Vikings. He also had two touchdowns in the game.
He was also third on the team in receiving yards, behind Cooks and Woods. Cooks is the leader with 857 yards, while Woods has 832 yards.
