Cooper Kupp placed on reserve/COVID list leading up to Rams’ Week 17 matchup with the Cardinals


The #Los #Angeles #Rams are currently sailing through some rough waters at a very inopportune time. #After two-straight losses, including a 20-9 defeat to the #Seahawks in #Week 16, #Sean #McVay’s team needs to pull out a win over the #Arizona #Cardinals in the regular-season finale to stamp their ticket into the playoffs. A third-straight L would then put their fate in the hands of the #Chicago #Bears, who would then need to lose for L.A. to get in.

#As they gear up for this pivotal matchup, they’ll be doing so without quarterback #Jared #Goff, who underwent surgery on his thumb that will likely keep him out until the playoffs. #That throws backup #John #Wolford into the starting spot and now he may even be short-handed when he jumps in under center.

The #Rams announced on #Tuesday that they’ve placed receiver #Cooper #Kupp on the reserve/COVID-19 list, which puts his status for #Week 17 in doubt. #As we’ve come to learn, being placed on this reserve list doesn’t necessarily mean that #Kupp tested positive for the coronavirus as he could have simply been deemed a close contact to someone who has tested positive. #If that’s the case, there is an easier path to being able to play on #Sunday, but if he turned in a positive test, then there’s reason to worry.

#If #Kupp can’t go, the #Rams would be without their leader in receptions (92) and receiving yards (974) this season. #That said, the club does have multiple weapons that can help cushion the blow of the potential absence of #Kupp, with receivers #Robert #Woods, #Josh #Reynolds, and #Van #Jefferson leading the way along with tight ends #Tyler #Higbee and #Gerald #Everett.
