Cooper Kupp carted off after suffering leg injury on illegal tackle
The Los Angeles Rams lost a member of their high-octane passing attack on Sunday, as wide receiver Cooper Kupp was carted off the field in the first half after suffering a painful looking leg injury.
Kupp took a hand-off from Jared Goff on a jet sweep and turned it up field for a first down. He was taken down by Denver Broncos defensive back Darian Stewart on a horse collar tackle, and Kupp’s ankle twisted underneath him as he was being dragged to the ground.

Kupp was carted off the field, so it appears the injury could be serious. That was a perfect example of why the horse collar tackle has been banned.
