Sean McVay provides significant update on Cooper Kupp injury
The Los Angeles Rams could really use wide receiver Cooper Kupp to bolster their offense, and there appears to be some hope that it could happen quite soon.
Rams coach Sean McVay said Wednesday that “the hope” is that Kupp is able to come off injured reserve after Week 4. Kupp is making progress physically, according to McVay, and appears on track to be back in Week 5.
Sean McVay says it’s still “the hope” that Cooper Kupp comes off IR on schedule and that he has progressed physically.

Kupp was placed on injured reserve just before the start of the season due to a lingering hamstring issue. The star receiver had seen a specialist in the hope of making the recurring problem go away for good.
The Rams are 1-2, though they have been competitive in both of their defeats. If Kupp can replicate anything close to his 2021 season upon returning, they should be in contention for a playoff spot.
