He left the game and was examined on the team’s bench, which led to some concern.

Kupp missed part of the 2018 season after suffering a torn ACL. His knee injury history made many worried after he left the game. But the good news is NFL Media’s Mike Garafolo says all indications are the injury is nothing major and Kupp should be fine.

Kupp had four catches for 78 yards in the Rams’ win, including a 44-yard play downfield where he made a great adjustment to catch the ball. The Rams need him and everyone else available as they advance in the playoffs. Quarterback Jared Goff is recovering from thumb surgery; John Wolford has a neck injury; and Aaron Donald got hurt on Saturday too.
