Cooper Kupp putting up better physical test scores after torn ACL than before
It has been just over nine months since Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp suffered a torn ACL, and it would be understandable if it took him several weeks to get back up to speed after the regular season. However, it sounds like he may have already done that.
In his latest mailbag, Jay Glazer of The Athletic praised Kupp for the hard work he has put in while rehabbing his knee. Believe it or not, Glazer says Kupp is putting up better numbers in his physical tests now than he did before tearing his ACL.
“With that rest, he was able to respond in a way where he’s faster,” Glazer wrote. “All his test scores, coming out of his breaks, agility, quickness, every test timed better than it was before he tore his ACL. It’s incredible.”
That’s obviously outstanding news for Kupp, whose knee took a beating last season even before he tore his ACL. It’s also great for a Rams offense that is much better when he’s on the field. Robert Woods can now resume playing on the outside with Kupp in the slot, and that should open up more opportunities for Jared Goff.
