Puka Nacua and Cooper Kupp Battle with Injuries to Shoulder and Ankle


Nov 21, 2023

On Monday, Rams star receiver Cooper Kupp received good news after further testing of his right ankle. Kupp left in the second quarter and did not return Sunday, but he has a lateral ankle sprain and is considered day to day. This was positive news for the team, as coach Sean McVay said that it’s a real possibility that Kupp could play Sunday against the Cardinals. “It’s a real possibility that he would be available,” McVay said. “I know he’s going to do everything in his power.” The Rams will monitor the functionality of Kupp’s ankle this week.

In other injury news, rookie receiver Puka Nacua injured his shoulder on the pass interference penalty he drew in the fourth quarter, and McVay also called him day to day. The Rams will see the return of running back Kyren Williams this week. He has not played since Week 6 when he sprained his left ankle. “It’ll be great to be able to get him back,” McVay said. “His productivity, his play energy, his overall presence – it’s a guy that we’ve missed.”
