Cooper Kupp could reportedly miss time with sprained MCL
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp left Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos after suffering what appeared to be a serious injury, but he was surprisingly able to return despite being carted off. However, the possibility still exists that he could miss some time.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Kupp suffered a sprained MCL and the Rams are bracing for the possibility that they could be without him in Week 7.

Kupp’s leg bent awkwardly underneath him when he was dragged down by a Broncos defender with an illegal tackle. There was initially speculation that his injury looked serious enough to be season-ending, so it was a welcome sight when he returned to the game in the second half.
With 30 catches for 438 yards and five touchdowns, Kupp is an important part of the Rams’ high-powered passing attack. L.A. is hoping for a quick recovery.
