Twitter reacts to Cooper Kupp returning to game after being carted off
Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Cooper Kupp left Sunday’s game against the Denver Broncos in the first half after suffering what appeared to be a serious lower leg injury. There was even some speculation that his season could be over, but he wasn’t about to go down that easy.
Kupp’s ankle turned awkwardly underneath him as he was being dragged down on an illegal horse collar tackle. He was carted off the field.

Fortunately, tests must have revealed Kupp suffered no structural damage. The Broncos also said he underwent concussion testing and was cleared. Kupp returned to the game for the second half, and the reactions on Twitter were fantastic:

I cannot believe Cooper Kupp is back in the game. The way his leg bent, I thought it was career-threatening. https://t.co/Y9ZKtDWWHg

Kupp is an important part of the Rams’ high-octane offense, so they must be relieved his injury was not nearly as bad as it initially seemed.
